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.

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.

The comfort of Therapy chairs ZeroG

Clinical Department – Chemotherapy

Therapy chair ZeroG presentation

The Novak-M Therapy chair ZeroG bring a new dimension of comfort to patients treated in Clinical Departments. Patients undergoing many treatments including chemotherapy arrive daily to the hospital. Being ill with cancer means an uncertainty and unpredictability and can cut deeply into one’s life. We cannot imagine the distress, fear and anxiety the patients face. Receiving chemotherapy as part of the treatment in cycles on an outpatient basis can lasts for up to 4-5 hours on average.

Ensure safety and comfort

The aim is to provide patients with an environment where the patient feels safe and comfortable.  Cancer patients face a difficult time in their lives, that is why great care is taken about where and how patients spend their time during chemotherapy.  A part of the ward’s equipment are the Therapy chairs ZeroG, which provide the patients with exceptional comfort.

Benefits of the Therapy chair ZeroG

The therapy chair’s mattress with special triple-layer technology foam, which has an open cell structure, offers full support and prevents the patient from overheating and sweating. The chair is equipped with a hand switch that allows patients to adjust the position that suits them best by themselves. The chair also offers a Zero Gravity position, where the body’s gravitational force is released so that the weight of the body is evenly distributed. This relieves pressure on the muscles and joints and speeds up circulation. The footrest contributes to additional comfort.

Would you like to provide such comfort in your ward?

Noval-M are pleased to be able to add a small part to the healing journey with the equipment they manufacture. Patient’s comfort is in the forethought of the ZeroG Therapy chair.

We have evaluation chairs available if you are interested in experiencing what the Novak-M ZeroG therapy chair can bring to the patients on your ward, contact us either directly through the website or by email.

Day hospital Therapy chair ZeroG – 2 in 1 chair!

The Novak-M Day hospital Therapy chair ZeroG was developed in response to the latest trends in outpatient surgery and postoperative recovery. With a design that enables easy and safe transport and facilitates extremely comfortable recovery after surgery, the new ZeroG chair perfectly replaces both a stretcher and an electric hospital bed. With this product you get a “2 in 1” chair for your facility.

Day Hospital bed chair

Easy preparation of the patient for surgery and safe transport even along the narrowest corridors.

One of the chair’s key benefits is the low sitting position that enables patients’ easier access onto the chair. Integrated armrests incorporated on the safety rails allow the medical staff to prepare the patient for a surgery. By lifting the firm and solid safety rails on both sides you ensure patients’ safety during transport and recovery. During the transport the ZeroG day hospital chair can be set into completely flat position which is also perfect for all patients’ transfers from the ZeroG chair to any OP table and vice versa.

Exceptional mobility and agility to and from the operating room are guaranteed by the castors with a central locking system and can be activated from all sides of the chair. Additionally we also added two fifth wheels for excellent manoeuvrability and turning on the spot. Managing the chair is simplified also due to the push handles at head section on optimal height. The chair and surrounding area are always protected with bumpers on the corners at leg section.

Guaranteed comfortable recovery for patients after any surgical procedure.

When it comes to functionality and comfort of the Day hospital chair ZeroG, we make no compromises. We are committed to provide the ultimate user experience. Simple adjustments of the ZeroG chair allow surgeons to safely transfer the patients onto the chair after surgery and place them into a optimal position for recovery. Any time during the rest, the patients can independently adapt the chair to their ideal position. By pressing a single “cloud” button on the hand switch, the chair can be set into a Zero Gravity position, which offers pressure relief for the body and joints. First-class comfort is ensured by the extra soft padding, made of high-quality foam that prevents overheating and sweating.
