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 Thema – a fully adjustable electric bed with a lateral tilt assisting staff with turning the patient.
The lateral tilt of the Latera Thema bed assists with turning the patient with the help of just one nurse and with minimal physical effort.
Construction features of the Latera Thema bed, such as column units, mattress platform covers, etc., play an important role in preventing the spread of hospital infections.
The column unit of Latera Thema is patented. The bed's unique construction base provides stability and guarantees continued functionality when loaded to 200 kg (safe working load).
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.
