Linet Latera Thema

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 onto 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, Linet developed Latera Thema – an adjustable electric bed with a lateral tilt which assists with the turning of the patient using minimal physical exertion. 

Your benefits at a glance

The lateral tilt helps with the turning of the patient using the minimum of physical exertion, often with the assistance of just one nurse.

The column units and mattress platform covers etc. are construction features that play an important part 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.
