Mitigating Back Injuries in Patient Care with the E5
When it comes to patient handling in the Hospital setting, a common issue is reaching over the bed to assist the patient.
The strain required by nurses when it comes to reaching over, enhances the risk of injury. With this in mind, Linet have designed a lateral tilting bed that safely tilts the bed toward or away from the nurse to ensure better and more efficent care. To make the bed, change the patient’s clothes, wash or position the patient without strain, staff can use the 15° lateral tilt to the left or the right. Work will be easier and more ergonomic.
Empirical measurements have demonstrated that there is a 30% saving in the energy expended. Wideley applied through the world, the E5 is available in the Australian Healthcare Sector for trial.
