The stretcher is among the most identifiable pieces of medical gear used by emergency medical services (EMS) professionals. It has been used for patient transportation in some capacity for many years. Stretchers are no longer just made of woven wicker or canvas and wood.
Since EMS and ambulance employees are already more at risk for back injuries than the general population, EMS stretchers, also known as gurneys, now incorporate wheels to make transfer over pavement easier while simultaneously lowering the risk of injury for medical staff.
Additionally, the legs of many contemporary stretchers may be raised and lowered automatically thanks to battery-powered hydraulics. Other names for these stretchers include “powered ambulance cots.”
The Global connected ambulance cot market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
One of the top manufacturers of medical technology in the world, Stryker, just unveiled the first linked ambulance cot. The Power-PRO 2 powered ambulance cot builds on the innovation of its predecessor and delivers enhanced movement, increased safety, and connectivity tools to assist maximise time and money.
First responders may better concentrate on what matters most—providing patients with the greatest medical care possible—with the aid of the new Power-PRO 2, which is a reinvention of a tried-and-true design.
Teams may experience a decrease in workers’ compensation expenditures, injuries, and missed/modified workdays when using the Power-PRO 2 in conjunction with Stryker’s Power-LOAD or Performance-LOAD cot fasteners; all of these benefits are covered by the company’s Proven to Save guarantee.
