Horizontal Lifting in hospitals
It is in hospitals that the need for lifting patients in a completely horizontal position is greatest. It can be from and to operating tables or x-ray equipment, or transfers between bed and gurney.
Many severely injured patients who need to be lifted horizontally are treated on intensive care units. Therefore, we have developed, in close cooperation with intensive care specialists, several products which enable a lift and transfer with minimum impact on the patient's body.
We also have products for transfer from emergency and ambulance gurneys.
