Now as an added protection in the ongoing battle with bacteria, Pedigo offers side rails made from CuVerro® bactericidal copper alloy. Copper is an intrinsic bactericidal element and CuVerro® is the only solid touch surface metal registered by the EPA to continuously kill bacteria1 that cause infections and pose a risk to human health. Lab tests show more than 99.9% of bacteria1 associated with disease and infection, including MRSA1, are killed within two hours when in contact with copper. Bacteria will continue to be killed 24 hours a day, week after week, between regular cleanings.
Made from CuVerro® bactericidal copper alloy, side rails are easy to wipe clean and disinfect. Full length tuck-away side rails allow for easier patient transfer by creating a zero transfer gap. Rails feature a release latch centrally located on either side of the litter top under the patient surface.
Oxygen Tank Holder:
Pedigo’s ergonomic Quick-Release O2 Tank Holder is side mounted and conveniently located under the patient surface to reduce caregiver bending. (US Patent 7,865,984 B2)
IS6™ – Instant Steer Six Wheel Steering:
The two IS6™ wheels are centered directly under the chassis for increased maneuverability and control. Dual ball bearing wheels feature a softer wheel tread for improved grip and traction.
CENTER COLUMN SUPPORT:
Sturdy steel column with single hydraulic lift cylinder design uses sixteen precision ball-bearings to smoothly raise and lower the patient.
Hydraulic height adjustment foot pedals:
Hydraulic Foot Pedals are located on each side of the stretcher within the patient care zone. Color-coded pedals and function graphics are quickly and easily understood.
