Stryker's new Power-LOAD

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
Wow, that's a lot of EMS calls and transporting of patients!!

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.

Let us know if you have questions or need help installing it!
