Positioning to prevent pressure ulcers, making the bed, taking care of the patient's hygiene and skin care needs, changing incontinence pads, post-operative drains – all of these procedures require turning patients on their sides. However, doing so manually can be considerably physically demanding and might result in long term injuries for both the patient and the medical staff. Therefore, we have developed Latera Acute – a fully adjustable electric bed with a lateral tilt assisting the staff with turning the patient.
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.
