System solution for ICU beds

ICU beds designed with a wide range of movement options and functionality can help ease the daily work routines and improve efficiency for caregivers. The powerful movement options offer improved ergonomics for caregivers with ideal working height and easy repositioning of patients.

Using electric actuator solutions provides several advantages such as:

  • Improved ergonomics
  • Optimised patient comfort and safety
  • Increased functionality and efficiency

Fewer hands in the healthcare sector to care for patients is a proven fact. It puts a strain on hospitals and intensive care units and calls for tools and equipment to support the daily work routines.

Improved ergonomics
Electric movement in ICU beds offers multi-adjustable options of backrest, leg rest and/or knee rest, height, tilt and bed extension. Movements are combined in movement patterns to ensure correct working height, improved ergonomics and to relieve the caregiver in job routines. Movement supported by electric LINAK® actuators contribute to job satisfaction.

Optimisation of patient comfort and safety
If patients are comfortable, they are likely to recover quicker and have better health outcomes. Patient comfort is vital for ICU beds. LINAK movement patterns ensure one fast and smooth movement into the desired position, such as …

  • Comfortable chair position to enjoy a meal, watch TV or to support cardiac chair position
  • Easy entry/exit position to increase safety and reduce patient falls
  • Auto-contour for increased comfort
  • One-touch button for fast movement into CPR or Trendelenburg position in emergency situations

Side-panel controls on the bed inside enable the patient to make own bed adjustments at any time without help from caregivers. It increases the patient's well-being and independence and relieves the caregiver.

Increased functionality and efficiency
LINAK system solutions based on a modular platform offer accessories for increased functionality and comfortable solutions like weighing in bed. This makes it easy for caregivers to follow the patient's weight without the patient leaving the bed, and relieves the caregiver of having to lift the patient.

Trusted control and movement are vital
LINAK is known for reliable products with a long and trouble-free operation. It is critical to have ICU beds without functional movement, which is why we make it easy to optimise your technical support process. LINAK OneConnect™ provides remote access to service data for fast and efficient troubleshooting from anywhere in the world to ensure high uptime of the bed.
