The ACC (Attendant Control Compact) is a cost optimised and compact box with up to 11 buttons that can be used as Handset keys or lock-outs. The lock-out function can be made visible by using LEDs. The ACC is compatible with control boxes that use an OpenBus™ interface e.g. CB20.
The ACC is fitted to advanced hospital beds and nursing home beds for use where patient positioning must be carefully controlled by medical staff. The ACC allows nursing staff to retain direct control over critical positioning functions while giving the patient a limited degree of adjustment. This high degree of selective control is vital in cases such as spinal injuries and other similar conditions where backrest positioning must be carefully supervised.
The ACC is ergonomically designed and easy to install on even the most advanced equipment. The ACC is mounted out of reach of the patient (for example at the end of the bed) and serves to block the handset functions that may be inappropriate or even dangerous to the patient.
