Power lifts to reduce injuries for paramedics
from Government of Alberta
More than 350 Alberta Health Services (AHS) ground ambulances will be equipped with power stretchers and load systems. The stretchers use a battery-powered hydraulic system to lift up to 317 kilograms safely and without physical strain. AHS installed electronic lifts in eight inter-facility transfer vehicles in 2015 as part of a pilot project.
