ArjoHuntleigh receives Red Dot design award for device saving caregivers’ backs during manual patient transfer

With Seba™, ArjoHuntleigh has proven its design excellence in one of the most important competitions for product design, the Red Dot Design Award.

Seba is the first and only single solution in the market for safely and comfortably moving patients from a Supine to Seated Edge of Bed (SSEB) position.

Seba is a lightweight, ergonomic board with a center pivot point that allows caregivers to safely get patients from a supine to seated position at the edge of the bed. This type of positioning is an essential part of activating patients and providing quality care, yet it is often performed manually, putting caregivers at risk of back injuries and resulting in discomfort for patients.

“With Seba, we now offer a solution for every step of the safe patient transfer process,” says Harald Stock, President & CEO. “This is the second consecutive year that ArjoHuntleigh has won a Red Dot award for product innovation in healthcare, and we are committed to continue developing solutions that reduce strain on caregivers, improve mobility and dignity of care for patients and offer health economics benefits.”

“Seba was developed with a strong focus on smart and user-friendly design and production was made possible by using unconventional and challenging plastic molding techniques. The Red Dot award confirms our efforts to make Seba a smart and easy to use tool for caregivers to help their patients from lying to a seated position”, says Fredrik Calais, Project Manager in ArjoHuntleigh’s R&D department.
