Healthy Growth and Protective Neurodevelopment is a Journey

From delivery to discharge, the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation is designed to address the changing and complex demands of the NICU by utilizing advanced technology to provide supportive, family-centered care solutions, consistently-controlled thermal environments, warmth during transport (when paired with the Giraffe Shuttle*), improved patient access and visibility, and reliable clinical performance.


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.

Safeguard from infection with advanced features and hands-free alarm silence: This is an important topic in the NICU. The Giraffe Omnibed Carestation is designed not to promote bacterial or fungal growth1. The hands-free alarm silence allows caregivers, with a wave of hand, to turn off the alert eliminating unnecessary procedure interruption and baby stimulation.

Care station concept - supporting connectivity and uninterrupted care through GE’s “One Baby. One Bed.” Solution.

When paired with the Giraffe Shuttle, the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation provides continuous warmth during intrahospital transport, in addition to promoting the growth and stability of even the most fragile of patients.

Our Giraffe Omnibed Carestation has connectivity capabilities which allow communication with electronic healthcare records and hospital information systems.

Empowering Caregivers’ Expertise

Every technological component of the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation was crafted to meet the infant’s needs, as well as the needs of the family members and caregivers.

Heat loss prevention

If either panel is opened, Air Boost can be enabled to protect the baby from heat loss and support thermal stability. Additionally, a servo humidity system, which was designed with sterility in mind, protects against infection and adds thermal support and decreases transepidermal water loss.

One-touch canopy lift

Easily convert the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation into a radiant warmer without disturbing the baby by utilizing the one-touch canopy lift and foot pedal.

Baby Susan 360° rotating and bi-directional mattress

Thanks to the Baby Susan* patented technology, clinicians can easily reposition the baby, reducing negative touches and stimulation to the newborn. The mattress is also pressure diffusing and bi-directional.

X-ray capable

With a large canopy surface, x-ray tray, radiolucent mattress and wide opening between canopy and mattress, the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation makes it simple to take digital x-ray images without disturbing the baby.

Connectivity capabilities

Stay up-to-date on all your patients’ medical history with a system that directly connects to hospital information systems, and is equipped for future updates.

Touchscreen display

10.4” color display touchscreen is built into the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation to help caregivers streamline information and control the baby’s environment, while making important information readily available to eager family members through custom, family-friendly away screens and themes.

Hands-Free Alarm silence

With the wave of a hand, clinicians can quickly silence the alarms, making it easier to provide immediate care, while maintaining a calm environment for the baby.
