Everything You Need, Every Step of the Way
Reinforcing GE’s commitment to babies, NICU clinicians and families keeping continuity in mind, the innovative Giraffe OmniBed Carestation delivers exceptional thermoregulation and creates a protected environment for the optimal deployment of neurodevelopmental and family centered care.Additional benefits include:
Streamlined workflow through enhanced user interface and alarm management : The large color display (10.4 inches) and touchscreen user interface helps caregivers optimizing their workflow while monitoring and controlling the baby’s environment. Ready to apply comfort zone, quick admission and weighting procedures, and direct access to the settings make it easy to operate.
