Pressure ulcer prevention… LINET ImagE 3 | electrically adjustable bed with additional, innovative features designed to prevent pressure ulcers and contribute to an improved treatment outcome. The Ergoframe® profiling mattress platform provides superior comfort for the patient and forms an integral part of the anti-decubitus benefits of the bed in conjunction with active mattresses systems developed and manufactured by LINET.

BENEFITS OF ERgOFRamE® POSITIONINg Reduction of pressure in the pelvic and sacral area maintaining healthy lung function/ventilation Reduces the risk of pressure ulcers in pelvic/shoulder blade area Patient comfort in all positions, including the seating position Prevention of complications arising from pressure on the internal abdominal organs Ensures constant head support is maintained

…and therapy systems active mattress systems play an important role in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. LINET offers its own range of active mattress systems with ‘zero pressure’ concept designed for high risk patients with reduced mobility.



aLTERNaTINg PRESSURE THERaPY is the basic therapeutic mode simulating the natural movement of a patient and thereby helping prevent and treat pressure ulcers.

The new 3 cell concept completely removes the effect of pressure. It works on the principle of alternating pressure in the individual air cells. The pressure falls to zero in one of the three neighbouring cells in a 7.5min cycle. The entire cycle is repeated constantly, 24 hours a day.

maX INFLaTE presents firm and stable support for patient care. after 30 minutes it automatically switches to the alternating mode to prevent the risk of pressure ulcers. CONSTaNT LOW PRESSURE automatically maintains the selected pressure regardless of changes in the patient’s weight distribution or position to achieve constant, good levels of pressure redistribution. TRaNSPORT mODE facilitates the transport of the patient in the bed as the mattress remains inflated for 24 hours when disconnected from the SCU.

7.5 mINUTE CYCLE Exton-Smith and Sherwin studied the number of movements in healthy people while sleeping to try and identify natural body behaviour.
