The Multicare intensive care and therapy bed is an ideal solution for the demanding special requirements of critically ill patients. The bed uses innovative technologies to create an ideal combination of clinical benefits for patients and staff – medical, nursing and therapy.
Unique features support vital patient functions and provide excellent working conditions for staff to help minimize the risks associated with caring for high acuity patients. This ensures that the patient can be treated safely and effortlessly. Multicare has a set of distinctive features and leading technology which provide solutions for many of the challenges faced in the high acuity environment.
SUPPORT FOR PREVENTION, THERAPY, AND DIAGNOSTICS (ADVANCED THERAPY CAPABILITY)
LINET’s proprietary platform provides continuous Automatic Lateral Therapy (ALT) via the bed frame. This standard feature of Multicare can assist in preventing ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP), mobilize secretions, improve gas exchange, and even assist with pressure injury reduction for patients who cannot be turned manually.
IMPROVEMENT OF PATIENT SAFETY AND COMFORT
The unique siderail concept, the Multizone Bed Exit Alarm, and the intelligent braking features help ensure each patient is protected from potential falls. The minimum gap siderail design also reduces the risk of patient entrapment.
PRESSURE INJURY PREVENTION
The Multicare bed helps to reduce pressure and shear through its proprietary Ergoframe® technology. Inspired by wound care experts, this feature significantly aids in the prevention of pressure injury by increasing envelopment capacity in the sacral area as the bed articulates. With Multicare open architecture you can choose among LINET's range of active and reactive mattresses.
FEATURES FOR EASE OF NURSING
Lateral tilt, Mobi-Lift® handle, i-Drive Power®, integrated scale, LCD control touch panel, and foot controls are examples of features designed for ease of caregiver use while minimizing the physical strain encountered by the nursing staff when providing care.
IMPROVEMENT OF PATIENT OUTCOME
AACN (American Association of Critical Care Nurses) has inspired LINET's clinical team to create a 4-level Early Mobilization Program using Multicare. Unique features of LINET beds enrich each level of the Early Mobilization Program.
Simple programming allows patients to rotate up to 30 degrees for continuous lateral rotation therapy.
Unique, platform-based turn assist.
Built-in sit-to-stand device that allows for active participation from the patient during mobilization.
Intelligent brakes automatically engage after 60 seconds when the bed is plugged into power.
Fifth wheel automatically engages when the bed is unplugged and in steer mode to enhance maneuverability during transport.
Optional powered drive system to facilitate patient transport during short or long distances and up/down inclines. Transport has never been easier!
Helps reduce patient migration to foot of the bed.
