Dubai/Kirchlengern, Germany 08. December 2023 – Intelligent drives and system technology for the hospital and care sectors: DewertOkin GmbH will be presenting system solutions for patient-centred care at Arab Health in Dubai. From January 29 to February 1, the Dewert brand will be presenting its new series of lifting columns, the powerful MEGAMAT 20 single drive and the cost-effective versatile Eco patient control unit. Visitors can get to know these products within various applications at the trade fair.


"The demand is growing throughout the world for a comfortable environment for patients and an ergonomic workplace for medical staff. We're making an active contribution to achieving these goals with our technology." explains Dirk Flören, Managing Director at DewertOkin. "That's why we are happy to be presenting our new products at this year's Arab Health and highlighting opportunities for better healthcare." The trade fair stand's focus will be on system solutions for drives and control units as well as retrofit accessories.


New series of lifting columns for different types of applications

Dewert's new series of lifting columns are suitable for a wide range of applications, including centre-column applications and bariatric applications. The round DC23 lifting columns have a pushing force of up to 2,000 N, while the square DC22 version can achieve up to 6,000 N. They are available individually or as an integrated complete system with the MEGAMAT 20.


The powerful MEGAMAT 20 single drive can be used to reliably and quietly adjust various medical applications such as hospital beds, treatment tables and care beds. It features a high protection class, an integrated position detection function, compact design, and an optional BUS-based control unit. When combined with other drives, control units, sensors and control keypads, it forms the foundation for a comprehensive and perfectly harmonised bed system.


Versatile and cost-effective patient control unit

Dewert also presents the JLDQ29M single drive for very high loads. With an adjustment force of 8,000 N, it is the ideal solution for use in demanding applications. This quiet, powerful, fast drive also provides users with outstanding versatility – with installation angles from zero to 90 degrees.


Versatility is also a key feature of the Eco patient control system. Its lightweight, powerful, compact lithium-ion battery enables it to be set up without any mounting. Dewert thus offers a cost-effective overall solution that can be optimally and easily integrated into various systems. There are new retrofit accessories to complement these applications: including out-of-bed sensors, USB chargers, under-bed (floor) lighting and reading lamps. Other highlights at Arab Health include new control units for patient lifting and patient transportation devices.


"The requirements for medical applications are continually growing," states Dirk Flören. "Our system solutions provide manufacturers of care and hospital beds with a coherent overall concept." Dewert will be showcasing products such as the new lifting columns and the MEGAMAT 20 in dialysis chairs, patient lifters and care beds. Visitors are invited to try them out for themselves.


Dewert will be exhibiting at Arab Health 2024 from January 29 to February 1 at stand Z3.D59.
