Safe patient moving & Handling
Frame-based lateral tilt allows easier patient manipulation and reduces physical strain applied on the caregiver’s back.
- 62% of nurses concerned with experiencing a disabling musculoskeletal injuries (1)
- 56% nurses reported musculoskeletal pain caused by work (1)
- 52% nurses had chronic back pain (1)
- 38% nurses took time off work due to back pain (1)
- 20% nurses left the bedside and took different positions due to back pain (1)
67% decrease in the average force needed to turn the patient from the supine position onto their side when using lateral tilt. (2)
Frame-based lateral tilt allows easier patient manipulation and reduces physical strain applied on caregiver's back.
Frame-based lateral tilt
A clinical study performed at 5 Healthcare facilities in the European Union surveyed 50 nurses on use of LINET frame-based lateral tilt up to 15 degrees on strain reduction for repositioning immobile patients:
- 68% felt very significant strain reduction
- 32% felt moderate strain reduction
- 0% felt no strain reduction
Combination of lateral tilt and reverse Trendelenburg allows easier postural drainage procedure.
Patient is less likely to slide down in the bed when the back rest and thigh rest are elevated together. Caregivers don’t need to pull the patient back up.
Reduces the physical effort of the caregiver that is needed to help the patient stand up & reduces the number of needed caregivers.
