Safety rails granted EU patent

Quality, innovation and staying close to the end-users have been the key points of development of medical equipment in the 40 years of our family business. The granted patent for the safety rails, being the standard equipment ofour patient transport trolleys Stretcher X and Stretcher SL and Day hospital chair ZeroG proves just that.

Proud of the granted patent

When designing our products end-users always come first: medical personnel, we try to ease their work by functionality of our products and patients, whose safety and comfort we need to ensure. Today we are proud to announce that we have been granted the EU and US patentConnecting element for a medical bedrail, assembly comprising it and procedure for assembling said assembly” with patent nr. EP3496694A1 and US 2020/222258 A1. It relates to the connecting element between the horizonal and vertical rods of the safety rail.

The path to innovation

The problem that led to the innovation was how to provide a connecting element which will allow the rail to be assembled in a quick and simple fashion while ensuring a sturdy connection/assembly of the rail elements. The rail needs to combine two focal characteristics. One is that the rail allows quick switching of the rail position from folded to deployed to ensure safety and moving patients from one table to another. The other characteristic is sturdiness of the rail while in practice the rail is often used for moving the bed.

Connecting element ensuring a sturdy connection, which is the object of the patent, is a single piece. It means fewer components, no bolts, no special tools. Less time is needed for assembling the rail, it increases its durability and provides as few unsmooth surfaces as possible which is a major concern in medical beds.

Safety rails are indispensable part of equipment

Safety rails are part of standard equipment of emergency trolleys Stretcher X and Stretcher SL which are primarily intended for patient transport. They are also an indispensable part of equipment on Day hospital chair ZeroG, which replaces both a patient trolley and a hospital bed at the same time in out-patient departments.
