The Patient Trolley is powered by an electric motor and puts an end to the physical strain of maneuvering cumbersome and heavy patient trolley around medical premises. It is as effective when moving up and down ramps as it is on level surfaces. Using this device will greatly reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries among porters and nurses of all ages. In addition to safeguarding personnel, the Patient Trolley also reduces the risk to hospital property. A trolley installed with this device will move ahead in a smooth and controlled manner. It will not tend to slide towards a lower gradient, but instead maintain a consistent path as directed by the staff member. This prevents bumps and bangs against walls and expensive medical equipment while importantly enhancing the patient's well being.
Additionally, an electrically powered height adjustment function provides comfort for the patient and convenience for staff. The vertical movement is smooth, comfortable and activated by a user friendly push button control, entirely removing the cumbersome and jolting foot pedal device of old. The gas spring assisted backrest provides comfort for the patient while adjust the angle of the backrest.
