Improving Safety for Patients

I imagine the speed on this conveyor could also be adjusted to move more fragile patients more slowly (i.e. older patients with brittle bones).  This could potentially improve patient safety during transfer procedures.

Back in Control Solutions Inc based in IL, we designed electronics for Stryker's emergency cots. Kind of similar concept, moving patients using motors against using muscles.

With the decreasing number of nursing staff automated patient transfer device

will become the need of the hour. With a wireless patient monitor . automated EMR , surgical robots soon medical care will become science fiction..!

It's a cumbersome description

"Automated Patient Transfer Device" is a bit of a mouth-full, don't you think?  Let's call it what it is, a conveyor belt.  Which means the patients are... conveyor surfing.  Hanging ten on the stretcher!

What a cool invention.  The thinness of the machine is impressive.  I wonder what it feels like as it "burrows" under the patient.

Power is provided...how?  Battery within the machine itself?  Battery within the stretcher?  Plugged into the wall?

Seems like a great idea with lots of applications in hospitals, in EMT vehicles, even at public venues. Has the device gone into production yet and are there any formal use cases of medical institutions actually putting it work? If it really can let a single nurse move a patient without help and without risk of injury, that would be a significant development.
