Innovation and endurance

There is something special about the Swedish mountain world. Stunningly beautiful, but at the same time barren and tough. For the animals that live there, unique features are required to meet its challenges. The järven, also known as a wolverine, is one of the animals that has become almost mythical owing to its survival skills and tenacity.
We are called Järven Health Care as we share that tenacity.
Our goal to provide the healthcare industry with high-quality effective products requires long-term work and responsiveness. When you buy one of Järven Health Care’s products, you are getting the result of many years of experience and expertise.

Our Lentex mattresses are an example of how smart product development gives rise to unique features. By thinking outside the box, we have developed a unique surface layer that advances the work of good hygiene in healthcare.

OptiCell pressure-relieving air mattresses are another example where healthcare requires effective products that are both easy to use and handle. Comprehensive product development with test groups from the healthcare industry has resulted in improved air pumps and innovative mattress systems.

The järven itself is an enduring animal but it is also part of a bigger picture. In the same way, Järven Health Care is part of the great work of all those involved in providing effective and good healthcare. We offer high-quality products that we believe contribute significantly towards effective healthcare work.
Together we can take a step in the right direction.

Järven Health Care’s headquarters are located in Örnsköldsvik with production units in both Örnsköldsvik and Kinnarumma. All production takes place according to high quality standards.

Our products are exported all over the world via a wide dealer network.
We supply hygiene mattresses and other medical equipment to over 30 countries.
