Latera thema

Lateral tilt bed with homely design.

Making the bed, patient hygiene and skin care, changing incontinence pads, post-operative drains - all of these procedures require the patient to be turned onto their sides. However, turning a patient onto their side in the traditional way can mean applying considerable physical exertion resulting in the risk of potential long term injuries. Therefore, we present the Latera Thema - an adjustable electric bed with a lateral tilt which assists with the turning of the patient using minimal physical exertion.

Lateral tilt can help prevent pressure ulcers.
