Bedding in amongst the top 100 innovative German companies

Bernd Mahnke on Right receiving award

What a delightful blast from the past - Bernd Mahnke of CareConcept Mahnke dropped me an e-mail proudly passing on the news that he was recognised as one of the top 100 innovative German companies this year.

I had the privilege of accompanying Bernd around the UK back in 2008 as he was exploring the potential markets here - see article Lincoln Imps and Pressure Beds. CareConcept produces specialist beds for hospitals or long term care, where patients can be bedridden for considerable periods of time. Using a unique system, the beds gently adjust position along their whole length to ensure that pressure sores and points do not arise.

Well done Bernd for the Award!
