Standard Features

  • Full length moulded plastic side rails drop down below the mattress support surface to allow unimpeded access for patients and virtually no gap when laterally transferring to or from a bed. Raising and lowering the side rails is almost effortless due to the counterbalanced pivot mechanism controlling movement.
  • Hydraulic assist height adjustment, using foot controls, accessible from both sides of trolley; exceptional low height for easy and safe patient access
  • Collapsible two stage IV pole, mounted to the outside of the side rail, at the head end. When not required, it folds down into a storage cavity, moulded into the side rail panel.
  • Hydraulic assist Trendelenburg function operated from hand control at side of trolley
  • Gas assist backrest function, activated from hand control behind patient’s head
  • 5th wheel steering significantly improves manoeuvrability and is engaged using foot pedal at the rear of trolley
  • Ergonomically positioned fold down push handles, at the head end, plus another set of fixed push handles behind the backrest reduce effort required when manoeuvring trolley during patient transfers
  • K8 pressure care mattress consisting of dual layer of hospital grade foam, with a viscoelastic memory foam top layer for additional pressure relief; mattress enclosed in a latex-free, breathable, vapour permeable 4 way stretch PU cover, with RF welded seams, for improved infection control
  • Central locking brakes accessed from both sides of trolley, front and rear
  • Oxygen cylinder storage troughs moulded into both sides of ABS plastic cover over trolley base
  • Rotating buffers on all four corners of trolley
  • 320kg SWL

Inbuilt motorised drive offers effortless movement combined with ultimate control. Since people and therefore patients are getting larger, it’s crucial that we take moving and handling issues into account, giving practitioners a trolley on which patients can be moved and positioned as easily as possible.

The introduction of our new touch-activated, motorised DRIVE feature offers a major enhancement in a trolley that already has ease of use, practicality and patient comfort built in. The trolley can also be used in traditional fifth wheel steer mode.

Minimise risks for practitioners dealing with increasing patient weights with powered positioning: the whole trolley platform or the backrest can be raised or lowered electronically from the panel at the foot end.

An additional powered feature places the trolley into the KneeFlex position for easy elevation of the lower limbs for patients having leg and foot procedures – position also provides additional comfort, particularly for patients undergoing abdominal procedures.

There’s also a special CPR feature: return the trolley swiftly to a horizontal, optimal height position for CPR treatment.
