Immobility of your critically ill patients has a crucial impact on their outcome. The AACN inspired the clinical team of LINET to create a 4-level Early Mobilization program using unique features from the Multicare critical care bed such as, Automatic Lateral Therapy® (ALT), Lateral Tilt, Mobi-Lift®, and the orthopnoeic chair position. LINET’s solutions offer caregivers in intensive and critical care units the following benefits.
Special features of the Multicare bed by LINET, in combination with the Early Mobilization program, can reduce the bedrest time of intensive care and critical care patients. With the LINET bed, mobilization can begin earlier, depending on the patient’s individual condition. The bed can be an effective aid for nurses and physical therapists, due to its many advanced functions such as micro-shifting, ALT, 30°HOB, Reverse Trendeleburg, etc. Therapists also use and recommend the use of the Multicare bed as a treatment table. Learn more information about LINET’s Early Mobilization program in our brochure.
Micro-shifting and Automatic Lateral Therapy are unique features of the LINET Multicare bed. Using the Multicare bed can assist therapists and nurses to be more effective in their daily work. Hemodynamic instability may cause a delay or omission in turning, repositioning and other interventions that advance patient mobility. This in turn may contribute to the formation of pressure injuries and lead to a higher risk of VAP. Micro-shifting technology and Automatic Lateral Therapy can be an effective supporting solution for reducing these complications. Moreover, special features of the OptiCare active air mattress recommended for LINET intensive care beds include microclimate management and can also assist in the prevention of pressure injuries.
Patient mobilization is a demanding and often long-term process. Although mobilization is essential for the patient’s faster recovery, it is associated with many risks, particularly patient falls. Special Multicare functions, such as Mobi-Lift® and lateral tilt, reduce the effort of bed exiting by 50% and, therefore, have an impact on patient safety. Special moving and handling techniques, as a part of an Early Mobilization program, assist in reducing risks.
While developing our products, we not only think about patients, but also place great emphasis on the development of features that would ease the work of hospital staff. Special Multicare bed functions, such as Mobi-Lift® and Lateral tilt, assist in increasing patient independence and can influence the risk of injury among healthcare workers - especially back injuries. Check our studies that show that using lateral-tilt functions can reduce the risk of injury among hospital staff who help patients move from a sitting to standing position.
