Linet Group SE is a leading global supplier of hospital beds for both standard and intensive medical care. The company’s success is primarily based on innovations that significantly help to improve the quality of healthcare and nursing-care in more than 100 countries worldwide, but much of its success is also due to close cooperation between Linet and healthcare professionals.
Linet hospital beds provide great assistance to nurses and caregivers, saving them time and energy. Equally, they substantially increase patient quality of life and independence. Thus, each Linet product delivers an original solution enabling the company to continue in its endeavour to bring comfort on both sides.
Linet intensive-care beds – the Multicare and Eleganza 3XC – are equipped with several unique features and functions. They aid in the prevention of pulmonary complications in long-term immobile patients, and facilitate many therapeutic and diagnostic procedures. These intensive-care hospital beds also ease physically-demanding procedures, thereby saving time and reducing caregiver workload.
All functions are managed and controlled by an electronic system rounding out the design of the intelligent, critical and intensive-care bed of the future. It helps to prevent the most serious risks of intensive care: VAP, decubitus and patient falls. The unique Linet columnar construction and leading-edge materials ensure fast and effective cleaning, ease of maintenance and lasting durability.
Universal hospital beds
Positionable hospital beds have a positive effect on patient treatment and convalescence and make the work of acute-care staff more effective and easier with unique features and functions.
Linet universal hospital beds actively support treatment and nursing-care procedures and contribute to a smooth patient recovery free of complications. Models include the Eleganza 3, Eleganza Smart, Latera Acute and Latera Thema.
Latera Acute and Latera Thema are equipped with 15° dual-directional lateral tilt; this makes them invaluable instruments in the hospitalisation of immobile patients, especially in non-acute hospital settings. Lateral tilt assists caregivers in performing routine nursing duties with minimum physical effort.
Pressure ulcer prevention mattresses
Linet views the prevention of pressure ulcers as an inseparable component of patient care, and the company delivers several solutions. First and foremost, patients with a low risk of pressure ulcer development benefit from the passive mattress systems Efecta, Prema, Clinicare, and Ergomatt.
In the case of long-term hospitalisation, during which the risk of pressure ulcers is much higher, healthcare specialists take advantage of active systems. Linet has achieved its greatest successes in this segment with its systems Virtuoso and Precioso.
Virtuoso uses three-cell technology to mimic the method through which the body usually prevents pressure damage by providing frequent and complete elimination of pressure. The Virtuoso is a 24hr care pressure-elimination system that provides prevention and helps to heal all grades of pressure ulcers irrespective of mobility. The parameters introduced on the system were carefully chosen based on results from extensive research and numerous clinical studies.
Virtuoso can be accompanied by a therapeutic cushion which, together with the mattress, delivers round-the-clock care. Patients are safeguarded even when sitting in a chair during meals or visits.
Precioso provides cost-effective 24hr alternating pressure care in the form of an overlay or mattress replacement system. It is suitable for patients with compromised mobility and is very effective in the healing and prevention of all grades of pressure ulcers.
As in the case of Virtuoso, Precioso can be accompanied by a therapeutic cushion offering the same benefits.
Alongside Virtuoso and Precioso, Linet offers other active systems: ProDerm 1, ProDerm 1 Plus, ProDerm 2, Precioso LAL, Symbioso and SimCair.
