With beds and patients constantly on the move between departments, services, Wards and operating theatres, the total distance covered can amount to many kilometres each day and the physical effort - and risk of injury to staff - involved in moving them is considerable, particularly when, as in many hospitals, ramps, gradients, narrow corridors and lifts have to be negotiated.
The Gzelle Auto drives easily under almost any hospital bed and, with the touch of a button, the whisper-quiet automatic hitch engages with the end frame of the bed - and it's ready to go!. As it is a detachable unit, a single Gzelle Auto can serve a number of beds, making it a very cost-effective solution for patient transfer. The unique design of the "Gzelle" allows the bed to be turned in it's own length with minimal effort, while the controls are simple and easy-to-use. The intuitive, twist-grip throttle, automatic braking and light, handle bar steering, allow finger-tip control by even the slightest operator.
The design of the control column, console and hitch mechanism means that only around 150mm is added to length of a standard hospital bed. This allows the complete unit to fit into most hospital lifts without detaching, making transfer between floors simple, quick and easy.
Manoeuvering heavy hospital beds and patients can cause serious injury. The unique design of the Gzelle allows full manoeuverability in even the tightest areas with minimal physical effort by a single operator. Along narrow corridors, negotiating tight corners, through narrow doorways and into and out of lifts, up and down ramps, the Gzelle Auto makes patient transfer safe and efficient.
