About Vibwife

Vibwife has designed a mattress-system that actively mobilizes and supports women during natural birth. During their training, midwives learn important mobilizing techniques to support birth progression; however, due to time constraints and physical limitations, those techniques are rarely used. Vibwife emulates those techniques for its active mobilizing system for the birthing woman.

Vibwife and Europe’s largest hospital bed manufacturer make childbirth easier

Aug 13, 2019

After several years of developing and testing, birthing beds with Vibwife’s ingenious mobilization technology are being launched. Thanks to a partnership contract recently signed by LINET Group and the Swiss start-up, the patented Vibwife technology will be combined with LINET’s unique AVE 2 birthing bed. Vibwife is a Swiss medical device company co-founded by a midwife, Anna Peters. “In midwifery training, I learned how important mobilization and positioning are. But soon I realized that what is taught in theory is often not feasible in practice”, said Anna. To solve this problem, she invented an ingenious mobilization technology for birth. This technology supports natural active birth by steadily moving the woman to support the natural birthing process. This product was put to the test in a clinical trial by the University Hospital Basel where a first interims analysis states "women and midwives overall rated their satisfaction with the product as excellent." The close partnership starts immediately and underlines LINET Group's commitment as the global leader in innovation for the birthing bed branch. The symbiosis of both technologies will play a central role in the state-of-the-art birth care of the future. Gunter Roper, LINET Group Global Product and Marketing Manager, comments. "Thanks to the connection with Vibwife we can now offer a trendy, safe and innovative way to give birth naturally". The promotion of natural births is an extremely thorny issue at a time when the number of caesarean sections is increasing worldwide, especially in developed countries. In Western Europe, the rate of caesarean section is up to 27%, and in the US, 32% of all births are performed by caesarean section. Studies have proven that movements during the birth process have a positive effect: fewer unplanned caesarean sections, the duration of birth is shorter, and women require fewer painkillers. The Vibwife assists by providing movements for hours and expectant mothers or their partner can use a remote control to choose the movement which makes them feel the most comfortable. "A birth is a very individual experience," says Chief Doctor Beata Loj, Sana Hanse-Klinikum Wismar. "There are women who move around the room during the delivery. At certain stages, however, many women want to be in the delivery bed where active movement during the birth is limited, this is when the mattress is very helpful,” she added. LINET Group LINET Group is Europe’s largest producer of innovative, high-quality healthcare beds, anti-decubitus mattresses, furniture, and comprehensive solutions for hospitals and nursing care facilities. LINET headquarters, as well as its production plant, continue to be based in Želevčice u Slaného (Czech Republic), where it has been located since its establishment in 1990. The plant manufactures around 40,000 hospital beds per year, the vast majority of which are intended for export to more than one hundred countries worldwide. LINET employs around 900 staff. Since 2011, LINET s.r.o. has been a division of the multinational holding organisation LINET Group SE, with registered offices in the Netherlands. (Press release / SK)
