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.


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.

ZeroG Therapy chair on-line configurator

Novak-M offer two different models of therapy chairs. Read more about their characteristics and advantages in one of our former posts. As today, we would like to take you through the Novak-M configurator. This offers you the simplest way to look at and consider all additional accessories, equip the chair to fulfil your requirements taking into account the specific needs of your patients, the use at your department and the room you will put it in.

For patent’s perfect comfort during therapies

The chair is designed for the patients’ comfort. The comfortable mattress, adjustable armrests and head rest, simple hand switch for position adjustment are parts of our standard equipment. Besides all these, a footrest can be added. Patients can adjust its position easily due to the integrated button. The footrest provides additional support, in particular when they want to move a bit.

Therapy chair fits into your premises

Clinics often face problems with a lack of space. Despite the fact that the therapy chair looks like a big comfortable bed, it features a small footprint. Find out what other accessories can help you save space.

Everything you need is on the chair

An infusion stand and its holder on the left and/or the right are attached to the base of the chair. This way you avoid self-standing stands. Optional fixation rails can be mounted along the sitting section for the attachment of any accessories needed during therapies.

Therapy chair is easily moved

Each Therapy chair feature castors so you can move it across the room. In case you need to move it often and/or from one room to another, you can choose the bigger antistatic castors. An additional battery is also available and it allows you to adjust the positions even if the chair is disconnected. Also, armrests can feature additional upholstery protection.

What about hygiene?

Many patients come for therapy and sit on the same chair during a day. It is very important you can ensure hygiene easily and quickly. The therapy chair has an option of a paper roll holder mounted on the back. For day hospital departments, we recommend you add PVC cover to protect the leg section from the patients shoes.

Choose the colour and you’re done

There is only one thing left to choose in the configurator, the colour. Three colours of the sky are available so your patients can really feel like floating on a cloud. When you’re done, simply send through the configuration, we will then make contact with you, receive a quote and discuss your requirements.
