- 40 years of Dewert: intelligent system technology for nursing and hospital beds at MEDICA

• Holistic system solutions with drives, sensors and accessories
• Single drive MEGAMAT 20 with integrated BUS control unit
• Intelligent monitoring and safety functions for hospital beds

Kirchlengern/Düsseldorf, 19 October 2022 - Dewert, a brand of DewertOkin GmbH, is celebrating its 40th anniversary at this year's MEDICA with the presentation of intelligent system solutions for the hospital and care sectors. The systems for nursing and hospital beds consist, among other things, of high-performance drives, extensive sensor and safety technology as well as digital condition monitoring. Visitors to the stand can also expect to see the MEGAMAT 20 single drive with a high protection class, position detection and integrated BUS-based control. In addition, Dewert will show peripherals such as controls and operating elements. In the innovation area of the stand, the solution provider will be exhibiting various applications, e.g. systems for preventing falls and pressure sores, and demonstrating others via virtual reality.

The history of Dewert began in 1982 with the development of the first drives for treatment chairs and tables. Today, 40 years later, the brand stands for powerful and reliable drive and system technology for nursing and hospital beds. "Innovative technology for medicine and care: this has already been our strength for four decades, and we are demonstrating it again at this year's MEDICA. At our trade fair stand we will not only show individual components, but above all holistic system solutions with real added value for nursing staff and patients," says Annett Sawitzki, member of the management board.

With the MEGAMAT 20, Dewert presents a single drive with a high protection class, integrated position detection, compact design and an optional BUS-based control unit. This allows it to be integrated into a wide range of applications in a space-saving way and enables a reliable and safe adjustment movement. The drive is available in different versions with 2, 4 or 6 kN as well as an emergency release version. Dewert also shows the MEGAMAT 20 installed in a real application.

Hospital and care beds with a system
The MEGAMAT 20 is also suitable as a basis for comprehensive bed systems consisting of several interconnected components - including drives, control units, sensors and operating elements. Networking and BUS communication between all system components offers numerous advantages: Optical sensors permanently measure the drive position, the stroke can be adjusted at any time by virtual limit switches. Permanent power and temperature monitoring as well as internal speed control ensure the longevity of the motor and components. In addition, the system logs various states such as overload, temperature exceedance and other parameters. By recording and viewing service data such as switching cycles, the system enables predictive maintenance.

In the innovation area of the Dewert trade fair stand, various components and systems for hospital and care beds are available as exhibits.

"The requirements for medical applications are continuously increasing. With our products and integrated concepts, we offer a reliable solution approach for manufacturers of nursing and hospital beds," emphasises Dirk Flören, Managing Director.

DewertOkin will be exhibiting at MEDICA 2022 in Düsseldorf in Hall 14, Stand B17.
