ALVO Transpa, patient transfer system
ALVO Transpa is a mobile hospital trolley which enables to transfer the patient within the hospital. Its mobile structure allows to use it in any place, especially where it is not possible to install a fixed patient transfer unit.
According to different medical research sources, even up to 40% of health cases among medical professionals are spine and muscle complaints, being the result of manual patient handling. In most hospitals a common, existing technique of transferring the patient to and from the operating table or a hospital bed is by pulling the patient across, in an inconvenient bent-over position. In such position, it is impossible for the nurse to use the strength of their legs to lift the majority of the patient’s weight. The whole weight needs to be carried with the muscles of their lower spine parts. After many years, such daily routine does leave its mark on ones spine.
The ALVO Transpa system based on a regular hospital trolley, with rolling belt to smoothly roll the patients to and from an operating table or a hospital bed, is significant innovation in patient transfer.
