Stretcher X2 – with caregivers in mind

stretcher X2 during patient transport FB 1

The reality of transporting patients within a hospital starts with narrow corridors, lifts, ramps and sometimes very long distances between triage and hospital wards. The key question is which features of the stretcher will make it faster and easier for the nurse to get a patient from A to B.

The lightness of the trolley

Patient transport is usually carried out by one person, be it a nurse or one of the nursing staff. A very important factor is how much the stretcher weighs, as it gets even heavier to push with the patient on it. That’s why the Stretcher X2 is 17 kg lighter than its predecessor. This represents 13% less pushing force each time the nurse moves the trolley.

patient on stretcher gal

In ergonomic position

It is not only the patients who benefit from height adjustment allowing them easy access. It is also very important for the ergonomic posture of the staff pushing the trolley or caring for the patient on it. With Stretcher X2, the height can be adjusted between 52 cm and 82 cm, a range that will meet the needs of staff of all sizes. The pedals for hydraulic height adjustment are located on both sides of the trolley.

Less time, less steps

Today we can no longer imagine having to lock each castor individually. Every modern stretcher is equipped by a central castoring system. This means that all four castors of the trolley can be operated by pushing a single pedal. The Stretcher X2 goes one step further by featuring controls on all four sides of the trolley.

What’s really in it for the nurse?

Having foot controls on all four sides means that the nurse doesn’t have to go to the head or foot end to lock the castors every time. It may not sound like much, but it saves her at least 8 steps each time. The steps add up quickly on a daily basis and every minute of their time is precious.

During driving

You can’t avoid turning corners and maneuvering when transporting a patient. If the stretcher is equipped with the fifth wheel, the nurse, especially if she is alone, will manage the turns easier. In physics terms the rotation lever is halved, which makes turning and cornering easier.

In support of treatment

Experience Stretcher X2 and feel how the focus of your work is really where it should be, with your patient. Your tasks will be carried out confidently and professionally without effort. Contact our sales team to find out more.

Making Dialysis nursing work easier – Therapy Chair ZeroG

Taking the Novak-M Therapy chair ZeroG LUX as an example, we would like to show you how the choice of equipment can help relieve nurses during their daily tasks in the Dialysis Clinic and help them be more efficient with the added incentive of taking better care of their own health.

ZeroG Dialysis

Caring for your health

The Therapy Chair ZeroG Luxury is electrically adjustable in height between 61 and 86 cm. Before the nurse cannulates the Dialysis patient and administers treatment, they can adjust the height of the chair and armrests and as such attend to the patient without unnecessary bending. Attending to the patient in the most ergonomic position prevents potential injury risks caused by forced or incorrect postures.

On lockable castors

The therapy chair has as standard lockable castors and a push handle, together with the adjustable height these features allow the nurses to move the chair easily, placing it at the correct position and height to the Dialysis machine enabling the patient or nurse to easily access the machines controls or even when required moving the chair down the corridor. Larger castors are also available if the chair is often moved from one room to another.

Patient independence

Dialysis, chemotherapy, pain-management and similar therapies always take several hours. A nurse can’t be present by each patient the whole time. Therefore, the chair is designed to maximise the patient’s independence. The hand switch is easy to use with clear commands that are graphically displayed. It allows the patient to independently adjust individual chair sections in the most comfortable position. The switch also features special buttons for the sitting, ZeroG and extended positions. The patient doesn’t need to call the nurse for every movement, which means they can meanwhile concentrate on other tasks.

Clinic therapy chair1

A very unique feature of the Therapy Chair ZeroG is the self adjusting footrest enabling easy adjustment by the patient alone. No nurse intervention is required, all the patient has to do is operate the footswitch and the footrest can be moved to the patient desired position.

Safety is taken care of

The last feature we would like to highlight is the safety that the chair provides for nurses during patient care. In case of a life-threatening situation, there is a red button on the hand switch for the Trendelenburg position and a button for the CPR position. Pressing a single button means that the chair automatically adjusts in the given position, and this allows medical staff to react quickly.

Equipment that brings treatment to a higher level

Quality medical equipment is designed to support medical staff during patient care. The workflow should be smoother, faster and easier because of it. We invite you to browse through our range of therapy chairs and other medical equipment that can bring treatment to a higher level in your clinic or hospital ward as well.

Hospital Stretcher X2 by the numbers

Handling a hospital stretcher? Important factors… Lowering the height, positioning the patient, lifting the safety rails, driving down the corridors, manoeuvring… all this is part of the daily routine of handling a stretcher.
Learn about the key features of the Stretcher X2 that make it easy to handle and offer comfort and safety to caregivers and patients.

stretcherX2

Easy patient access and ergonomic posture

For a healthy person, settling on a trolley is easy. The problem is they do not need to settle on it, but someone who is being transferred on or someone who has difficulty moving, is elderly or in pain. Then every inch counts. The Stretcher X2 boasts an exceptionally low bottom position of 52 cm.

The range between the extreme bottom and top height of the stretcher is 40 cm. The height adjustment is not important only for patient access, but also for those who examine and care for a patient, administer therapy or drive the stretcher. Ergonomic posture at the right height is important for all healthcare staff.

Safely settled on the trolley

Safety rails ensure safety during transport. They cover 78% of the stretcher’s length. They are 42 cm high, which also meets the standards for hospital beds. The safety rail boasts the European and US patent for the connecting element, which has improved its strength. Our survey data show an 84.5% reduction in servicing due to damaged safety rails*. Read more about the safety rails.

During patient transport

To get the real picture of patient transport, imagine long hospital corridors, the turnings and the weight of the trolley with a patient on it.

Easier pushing and greater reliability

Compared to its predecessor, the safe working load of Stretcher X2 has been increased by 19%. Its weight capacity is 320 kg, which makes it even more reliable. At the same time, the trolley is 17 kg lighter, which means 13% less push force to move it. Considering the long corridors connecting triage and wards, this leads to much less strain on the nurse’s body daily.

Fast and intuitive operation

Operating a trolley can be time-consuming. That’s why Stretcher X2 has castor controls on all four sides, which significantly reduces the number of steps a nurse has to take while caring for a patient. More concretely, they make 8 steps less each time they don’t need to go from the side to foot/head end just to block the castors.

Transporting a patient comes with the cornering and turning. If the stretcher is equipped with a fifth wheel, in physics terms the rotation lever is halved, which makes turning and cornering easier. This is particularly important because often only one person pushes the stretcher.

The numbers speak for themselves

The numbers confirm the facts and thus bring the focus of the medical staff’s tasks back to the very essence: the patient. With the full support of the Stretcher X2, you will be able to concentrate fully on your work with the patient and do your job more confidently and efficiently.
