Structural features

Health care institutions safe environment  is a topical and complex issue for medical personnel. Safe environment implies special conditions of work organization in medical preventive institutions, ensuring absense of possibility of infectious diseases and industrial diseases contraction. 

High percentage of medical staff disease incidence is personal injuries at professional duties performance. Nurses have to move patients, heavy equipment and stay in uncomfortable posture for a long time. Medical staff work is slightly mechanized and that’s why the work is connected with heavy physical loads very often in extreme conditions. Continuous exposure to negative factors results in not only injuries but also in locomotorium diseases: spine, lower and upper limbs. Nowadays, back pain is an epidemic of healthcare. Medical staff health status acquires more social significance, so as it defines not only their labor quality, but also their quality of life.  

Only specialized enterprises are authorized to produce medical furniture. It is a science-intensive and high-technological process, combining utilization of modern technologies in furniture production and professional process equipment, satisfying world standards. 


First of all, attention should be paid to materials and accessories medical furniture is produced of, i.e. chemical and mechanical safety.  For example, SINTEX uses laminated chipboard of Austrian corporate group EGGER that meets all the requirements of high ecological safety (class Е1) and can be used in production of medical furniture. To provide continuous use table front is finished by edge material of German company REHAU, that guarantees high-quality, ecological and mechanical safety of furniture edges, having protecting against humidity and reagents. We do not finish tabletops with standard furniture (paper, melamine) edge, since it is easily damaged during first months of service.

Additional intensive load is carried out by opening, pull out devices and fastening elements. Therefore making the design of our furniture we use Austrian hardware BLUM.

Special adjustable feet that allow smoothening floor roughness and making damp sweeping underneath, are used in cabinets and racks. Special feet or pads preventing furniture contact with the floor after cleaning and peeling of the edge and laminated chip board swelling are used.


Storage cabinets for tools and various documentation are of four types: racks without doors, with doors in the lower part (with open and closed part), with panel doors and cabinets with glass in the upper part   (for safety, glass in cabinets is used only in MDF profile). Door levers are used in cabinets (due to plated coating they have long-term service and are less hazardous because of sharp angles absence).

Cabinets are fastened using special assembly ties to prevent falling.

Constructive shelves in cabinets have rigid fastening by means of special ties that prevent them from falling in case of negligent use, at once allowing repeated furniture assembling and disassembling.  

All the cabinets and racks have four height dimensions, two width dimensions and in combination with corner elements (that act as rounding elements). It provides the possibility to equip any office room with the required furniture set.    


A bed is a main object in patient rooms, subjected to overloads.  Therefore every bed component is oriented to save initial strength and reliability. In orthopedic bed base high-strength lamellas are used.  Special holders by means of which lamellas are fixed improve bed frame strength and service life.

Beds are provided with special feet that allow the staff making damp sweeping underneath bed easily and without any difficulties

Chairs and office chairs 

About 90% of work time office staff stay sitting at the working desk.  Alone statistics looks innocent, but if we take into account the fact that sitting position increases pressure in the lower back part by five times in comparison with standing position, the conclusion will be quite alarming.   

Normally, on a stool or chair without harm to health you can sit not more than 15 minutes a day. The seat, which reduces the risk to zero, shall be provided with arms, have a maximum depth of planting and does not pinch the artery behind the knees. Elastic back of anatomic shape reduces the load on the spine. As a result, the structure evenly supports the body over the entire area of its contact with the chair.

Prolonged sedentary work is harmful to a man, in principle: you slouch or lean forward and your spine is deformed, damaging disks, you lift your shoulders and bend your arms, keeping them in suspense - and, naturally, they start to hurt. Constricting vessels, you overload the heart, not speaking about chronic sprains of hand tendons and continually deteriorating eyesight.

If your feet do not reach the floor or you're in the same position for a long time, blood flow is impeded in the legs, which consequently may lead to thrombophlebitis. The foot should rest most of the time on the floor. It is the healthiest position for the foot. This problem can be solved by means of footrest, specially designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the legs after prolonged use. Free-floating platform allows you to place legs as comfortable as possible, improving blood circulation. The stand should have a smooth height adjustment and a massage surface. Monitor stand lifting monitor over the table surface and special table fixture is foreseen for tension relief of shoulder girdle muscles. And for the correct positioning of the spine the "correct" ergonomic chair with the possibility of adjustments is required. 

 Medical staff spends much time sitting up, that results in the following complications:

Selecting medical furniture it is important to consider color. «Sintex» offers furniture of light-grey color. Light grey color doesn’t affect psychoemotional state, have the calming effect and furthermore all the impurities on its surface are visible and can be easily removed.
