Stryker Power Load

December 13th 2012

The Power-LOAD™ cot fastener system improves operator and patient safety by supporting the cot throughout the loading and unloading process. The Power-LOAD™ cot fastener system wirelessly communicates with Power-PRO™ cots. Power-LOAD™ hydraulically lifts patients weighing up to 700 lbs with the touch of a button.

"We have had a Stryker Power-LOAD™ cot fastener system installed by Crestline into our newest ambulance. The system has been met with great enthusiasm by all WPD Ambulance Paramedics. In the emergency medical service field there are many back injuries due to loading and unloading cots on all types of terrain. With the Power-LOAD's full lift capabilities; we have seen less stress on our paramedics backs which in turn will make us able to continue to provide the best care for all of our patients without the possibility of back injuries. The Power-LOAD™ is very safe, simple to use and does not require any extra work space in the back of the unit. I would recommend the Stryker Power-LOAD™ in every ambulance, for the safety of all paramedics to have long injury free careers"
