Patient transport is a physically demanding task. Internal hospital studies have shown, patient transport as a high risk activity contributing to back strain and injury of staff.
Carers are reporting injuries through the cumulative result of small strains and over exertion being built up over many years.
The current Healthcare environment sees more extensive and expansive hospitals, more ramps and longer internal patient journeys to specialist services.
Bigger, heavier and more numerous patients with shorter stay times requiring more acute levels of care. Patients are more dependent than ever on carers for mobility.
