About the McMonty

The McMonty comes in two sizes, referred to as ‘standard’ and ‘narrow’. When measuring, please be sure to measure the mattress width, not the bed frame width.

StandardSuitable for beds >1000mm.

NarrowSuitable for beds <1000mm.

How to Measure:

The PVC Hood is recyclable through PVC recycling if your healthcare facility has this available.

In order to do so, the hood will need to be disinfected and have the vinyl tabs and velcro cut or torn off first.

If PVC recycling is not available at your facility, it will need to be disposed of in clinical waste.


Minimise gaps as much as possible.

Pushing the back of the bed against the backboard of The McMonty should be common practice. Ensure the bottom of the clear hood is below bed level and neatly laid over the legs of the patient.

The system is designed such that it will not have an airtight seal and will operate as planned with small gaps between the bed and the transparent hood.

Ideally gaps should be kept under 6cm between the bed and the PVC hood.
