Making Healthcare Better

Why Stryker? Our products and passion for improving outcomes help make the lives of patients, and the people who care for them, better.



Stryker believes in creating Patient Handling products that are simple and intuitive to use. That's why meaningful innovation goes into every product we design. Easy-to-use products can help facilitate positive patient outcomes and experiences, because they improve the caregivers’ ability to focus on their patients and deliver exceptional care.



Just as caregivers are committed to the well-being of their patients, we are committed to their health and safety. We put ergonomics at the forefront of our design process to help reduce common repetitive-use injuries among caregivers. With BackSmart product design built into Stryker products, the amount of awkward bending and reaching caregivers do on a daily basis is reduced, empowering them to provide the best care for their patients, big and small.

This commitment to safety extends to patients as well. From stretchers that enhance patient comfort and alert caregivers of fall risk to temperature management equipment that helps control this important vital sign, Stryker Patient Handling products help reduce the risk of some adverse events.



In an environment where every second is critical, caregivers need products that support speed and efficiency in their roles. Facilities strive to lower costs and maximize reimbursements by reducing adverse events while increasing patient throughput. Stryker Patient Handling products deliver on both by empowering caregivers to do more with less.
