Soma® Safe – Overview

Vivax Medical is committed to bringing clinically superior products to the healthcare market that improves patient care and safety, while lowering the cost of quality healthcare.

We recognize that a healthcare provider’s primary concern is for the well being of their patient. However, healthcare providers are also concerned with the increased cost of providing quality healthcare. Recent regulation changes such as “Never Events” now place the costs associated with hospital fall related injuries on that institution.

  • Allows maximum freedom of movement
  • Avoids patient injuries
    • Permits the patient to interact with their environment
    • Promotes security and well being

The Soma® Safe Enclosure product line is your answer to “Never Events”. We provide a safe, humane and relaxing environment for behaviorally challenged patients who otherwise would have required a less humane restraint option. Anecdotally sitters or 1:1’s have shown to be ineffective in preventing the actual fall, often resulting in patient sitter confrontation. Sitters 1:1’s also place a huge financial strain on a hospital’s operational budget.
