Guldmann Operating Theatre

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

Time to change the handling practices in OR

As in other specialized hospital settings there are many challenges associated with providing safe patient handling in operating theatres.

Operating Theatres are usually crowded with both staff and equipment which is forcing the theatre staff to work in awkward positions. This combined with the sometimes fast–paced situations and need to manage physically dependent patients, increases the risk of injury to patients and staff.

Intensive Care

In many operating theatres the doctors and theatre staff are still manually lifting, pushing and pulling the patient when he or she has to be moved or lifted from A to B or positioned correctly for the pending operation

Intensive Care

Manually lifting and positioning the anaesthetized patient requires more time and utilises more staff resources. The manual lifting and handling involves a high risk of shear force and friction on the patient’s skin, and it also increases the risk of unintended incidents caused by misunderstandings among the staff, unlocked tables and the like.

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