Pillow Speakers

Curbell Pillow Speakers® work specifically with healthcare televisions. These advanced pillow speakers provide the convenience of the conventional home remote in a hospital setting. Instantaneous on/off, channel up, channel down, and closed caption are just some of the features.

TB&A provides a full line of Curbell Pillow Speakers, Adapters, Call Cords and Jumper Cables.

Curbell designed the new Gen4 pillow speaker line from the ground up, combining the best features of previous pillow speakers, suggestions from customers, and new materials and techniques. The Gen4 Pillow Speakers are a step ahead of anything else in the nurse call industry today.
