Guldmann Intensive Care

Well proven and much appreciated as effective equipment in any ICU...


More time to care

Intensive/critical care units are often fast-paced and unpredictable settings that can increase the risk of injuries to care staff. In addition, patients in such units are usually quite physically dependent and have difficulty following directions due to medications and illness. This means they require more assistance from care staff, which increases the risk of care staff injuries still further.

Intensive Care

There are many challenges associated with providing safe patient handling in intensive care units. The medical condition of those being treated in such units can often change rapidly, which means that care staff are often required to assess and reassess patients’ functional status and handling needs, and to do so at frequent intervals.


Intensive care units are usually crowded with both staff and equipment, forcing care staff to work in awkward positions.
