Prodigy™ Bedroom Series
Warmth Of Wood,
Performance Of Polymer
A game-changer in behavioral healthcare, Prodigy is designed and engineered to overcome the daunting challenge of creating a humanized environment without sacrificing safety, security, and long-term performance. Prodigy looks like traditional wooden furniture, complete with texture and color variations. Its one-piece polymer form, however, beats traditional wood in endurance, cleanability, and safety.
Welcoming & Waiting
Lobbies and reception areas are often subjected to the highest amount of traffic in your facility. Seating and tables must be able to maintain high durability levels and easy cleanability while simultaneously contributing to the overall aesthetic of the space. Furniture designed specifically for behavioral healthcare is essential for all areas of a facility.
New research shows that creating normalized environments that closely reflect life outside the facility has a positive impact on the well-being of patients. While the objective is to create a space that feels warm, inviting and encourages patient interaction, it is still imperative that these spaces maintain a high level of safety, security and cleanliness.
Cafeteria and dining hall settings play a key role in promoting socialization within a facility. Safely providing patients with exposure to environments that reflect the real-world can help support the rehabilitation process and better prepare them for life outside the facility.
Providing access to outdoor spaces allows patients the opportunity to actively engage in their own recovery. The outdoors has proven to be an ideal nurturing environment, full of fresh air and natural light.
The use of natural light, pops of color and various connections to nature in patient rooms has proven to have a positive impact on a patient’s rehabilitative journey. The integration of these design elements, along with a strict emphasis on patient safety and security, has vastly changed the way behavioral healthcare is approached.
The use of traditional wood furnishings can create a warm, homelike atmosphere, but also leaves facilities vulnerable to issues like splintering,
bed bugs and moisture absorption. The Prodigy® Bedroom Series delivers the look of real wood with all of the benefits of a high-performance polymer.
The mental, emotional and physical well-being of staff members is a priority for all behavioral health facilities. Providing staff with certain amenities like areas of relief, areas to collaborate with other staff members and access to natural light can have an immense impact on their general well-being, enabling them to provide patients with better care.
