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 onto 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 staff with turning the patient.
Easy turning of a patient
MAIN BENEFITS OF LATERA ACUTE
The autoregression of the mattress platform extends the pelvic area by creating extra space and thus helps to prevent pressure ulcers while enhancing patient comfort.
The column unit of Latera Acute is patented. The bed's unique construction base provides stability and guarantees continued functionality when loaded to 200 kg (safe working load).
Construction features of the Latera Acute hospital bed, such as column units, mattress platform covers, etc., play an important role in preventing the spread of hospital infections.
The lateral tilt of the Latera Acute bed assists with turning the patient with the help of just one nurse and with minimal physical effort.
Early mobilisation of the patient helps to prevent complications associated with immobility. The lateral tilt helps the patient stand with ease, reduces physical effort of healthcare staff and the patient and increases their safety.
