Stryker has now released its new Power-LOAD system, which is focused on reducing the number of back injuries sustained by EMTs. Some reports say 47% of medics have suffered a back injury while performing EMS duties. So the need for relief is real.
The National EMS Assessment was recently released by EMS.gov, which estimates that in 2011 in the US:
- 36 million EMS events occurred
- 28 million EMS transports occurred
The Power-LOAD system allows EMTs to load and unload patients with the simple touch of a button. Too good to be true? Here's where you can read more info about the Power-LOAD system.
