ePowerTrucks EP Bed Mover Makes Work Safer For Hospital Staff

by admin

Materials handling & electric vehicle specialist ePowerTrucks innovative EP Electric Bed Transporter system is designed to prevent work-related injury and make life easier for hospital porters and nursing staff whilst moving beds.

The exceptionally manoeuvrable, power-assisted, EP Electric Bed Transporter provides the perfect solution to moving hospital beds. It greatly reduces the effort required in manual handling them, therefore diminishing the risk of musculoskeletal and repetitive strain injuries caused by lifting heavy equipment.

The ergonomically-designed, compact, lifter and transport system is compatible with almost all beds, specialty beds, stretchers, trolleys and other movable equipment worldwide, without the need to change attachments.

The dual drive system with height-adjustable handle allows a single person to drive equipment weighing up to 600kg with just one finger or thumb, without any strain on their back muscles, thanks to its effortless 360º movement.

The straightforward claw-like design of the lifter allows stress-free attachment to the bed or trolley, adapting easily to different castor sizes. Its wheelbase expands smoothly from 550cm to 890cm as it captures and lifts the bed by its castors with its patented ‘Connect & Lock’ jaw assembly.

Hospital staff pushing beds, stretchers and equipment walk on average 15-20km a day, while the increase in the total weight of many beds and patients makes the EP Electric Bed Transporter even more useful.

As well as protecting workers from injury, the EP Hospital Bed Mover, with its quiet, efficient wheels, makes their work simpler, less tiring and more enjoyable, boosting morale and decreasing uncertainties about staff availability.

As a further bonus, in preventing injury the EP Bed Mover also reduces the risk of workers’ compensation claims and sickness costs.

Safety features such as jaw and brake bypasses allow for release in an emergency, and the mover can be securely operated on gradients of up to 7º, seamlessly coping with uneven terrain and tight corners. Reliability, efficiency and safety are all assured.

The Glutton Shines At London Southend Airport

by admin

A new cleaning machine is making life easier for workers at one of the UK’s fastest-growing airports.

London Southend Airport’s operations team has invested in a Glutton pedestrian-controlled cleaning machine for cleaning the car park, and around the exterior of the terminal. The Glutton is a quiet, clean and environmentally-friendly alternative to ride-on street cleaners and powered barrows. Its powerful vacuum sucks up any waste that can pass through its 12.5cm diameter tube; including paper, cardboard, cigarettes packets and butts, cans and glass, plastic and metal bottles, dog feces, dead leaves, and waste trapped in tree grills.

100% battery powered, the Glutton provides 12 hours of operation between charges. Virtually silent and with powerful dust capturing technology, it can be used during busy periods without creating any noise or air pollution for residents, businesses, and shoppers.

Ergonomically designed, the operator simply uses one hand to steer the self-propelled machine, while the other controls the vacuum that is attached to a wander hose. The Glutton weighs substantially less than a conventionally powered barrow used for street waste collection – and at just 0.75m wide it is far more compact, making it easier to handle.

An intelligent, integrated battery charger enables recharging from any mains electricity supply, allowing for opportune charging in the field. Furthermore, as an all-electric machine, it requires virtually no maintenance or replacement of spare parts.

Sheffield BID Take Delivery Of Alke ATX 230e Electric Utility Vehicle From ePowerTrucks

by admin

The new Street Rangers scheme has been developed by Sheffield’s Business Improvement District (BID) as part of its commitment to help clean up the city centre.

The Street Rangers will be on duty between 6am and 8am Monday to Thursday and 6am and 9am Friday to Sunday on a scheduled 7-day clean-up of the known hot spots. BID Levy Payers are also being offered a rapid-response service for specific problems that might occur outside of the scheduled clean.

According to Diane Jarvis, Sheffield’s BID Manager: The Street Rangers service has been introduced following a growing number of complaints from businesses who arrive for work to find that their bins have been raided, and that doorways, private service yards and recesses contain discarded materials used for bedding and other offensive waste and detritus relating to street drinking. All of which is currently cleaned up by the business owners or employees.

Diane said: “We have a vibrant city centre which is on the cusp of great-things. But we can’t ignore the fact there are some environmental hygiene issues. These might not be quite so obvious to visitors, but businesses are being affected by people sleeping rough and others using their shop doorways to relieve themselves late at night.”
