The positioning to prevent pressure ulcers, making the bed, patient hygiene and skin care, changing incontinence pads, post-operative drains – all of these procedures require the patient to be turned on to their sides. However, turning a patient onto their side in the traditional way can mean applying considerable physical exertion resulting in the risk of potential long term injuries. Therefore, we have developed the latera acute – an adjustable electric bed with a lateral tilt which assists with the turning of the patient using minimal physical exertion.
The lateral tilt helps with the turning of the patient using the minimum of physical exertion, often with the assistance of just one nurse.
Early mobilisation helps to prevent complications associated with immobility. The lateral tilt helps the patient to stand with ease, reduces effort and increases the safety of the healthcare staff.
The column units and mattress platform covers etc. are construction features that play an important role in effective preventative measures in controlling the spread of hospital infections.
The column unit is patented. The bed's unique construction base provides great stability and guarantees continued functionality when loaded to 200 kg (safe working load).
The autoregression of the mattress platform extends the pelvic area by 11 cm contributing to the prevention of pressure ulcers whilst enhancing patient comfort.
