Meet the Hillrom Progressa+ True ICU Bed


In the ICU, You’re Ready for Anything

When patients need you, you’re there. When the stakes are high, you’re on. And when action is needed, you’re ready. To perform at the consistently high levels the ICU demands, you need equipment designed specifically for your critical care realities.

Meet the Hillrom PROGRESSA+ True ICU Bed

This unique bed draws on the strong legacy of its predecessor, and builds on it with meaningful improvements designed for today’s ICUs. Discover how it can help your patients stabilize and recover — and support your critical care teams at the heart of it all.

Protect Patients’ Skin

Hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) are all too common in the ICU, where patients are often immobile. And these complications are harmful in more ways than one:

Patient Alert

They’re Urgent

60,000 patients die every year from pressure injuries.1


They’re Costly

Treating stage III or IV pressure injuries in hospitals can cost an average of $43,000.2,3


They’re Pervasive

170 patients per year will acquire a pressure injury in an average 100-bed facility.4,5

Listen now to the discussion on skin safety in the ICU.


Time in bed may not be avoidable in the ICU — but pressure injuries should be. The Progressa+ true ICU bed and its advanced surfaces are designed to help protect your patients’ skin integrity so you can focus on patient care.


Listen now to the discussion on pulmonary protocols in the ICU.


Breathe Easy

Long periods of immobility are common in the ICU, making pulmonary complications top concerns.6 For example:

Respiratory system

Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia

has been linked to increased ICU lengths of stay.7


ICU Stays

can cost up to $32,418 for an average stay of 6-9 days8,9

Deliver the pulmonary therapies your patients need — in bed, with the press of a button. The Progressa+ bed supports therapies and protocols to help combat these issues without additional devices or more clinicians called to the bedside.


Move Patients Early and Often

Studies show that immobility leads to longer hospital stays, longer times on mechanical ventilation, functional decline and many other negative patient outcomes.10,11,12

Listen now to the discussion on progressive mobility in the ICU.


Early patient mobility programs are proven to reduce both ICU length of stay and the number of ventilator days.13 Support early mobility from proning to standing — while reducing strain on clinicians — with the Progressa+ true ICU bed.
