Bed & Stretcher Movers

Reduce musculoskeletal injuries and improve efficiency when moving beds and stretchers around your hospital with the Felgains Bed & Stretcher Mover range.

The average hospital bed or stretcher weighs in the region of 150kg. Add an average patient weight of 78kg, and porters push approximately 228kg when moving a bed or trolley around the hospital. When you consider the average hospital in the UK moves hospital beds hundreds of times per day, the obvious strain of this can cause injuries among the portering staff.

To combat this risk of MSIs, portering staff will often be needed to double up when moving beds and stretchers around the hospital. This harms portering resources and time.

The Felgains Bed Mover range enables the portering team to safely and efficiently transport beds and trolleys around the hospital with fewer resources. These bed movers attach to the bed frame and are compatible with the vast majority of NHS beds and stretchers.
