EMS

Preserve Staff Health and Patient Safety

As the first line of service, EMS professionals and firefighters play a vital role in saving lives while treating injuries and illness. They are often required to rush to hazardous scenes, putting themselves at risk for the sake of others. The need to extract patients from the scene of an incident quickly results in sprains and strains from overexertion – the most common injuries among EMS workers.1 Lifting and moving patients can be done more safely and efficiently with products like the Evacuation EMS HoverJack® Device and HoverMatt® Air Transfer System.

With the ability to more easily lift and transfer patients up to 1,200 lbs, these products can get the job done with less staff while preserving worker health to support career longevity. Additionally, all patients, including those who are considered bariatric, will experience a more dignified and comfortable service that will be directly related to your company.

HoverTech International products can greatly reduce worker injury, patient injury, and workers compensation costs for the employer.
