Your team of caregivers can depend on our team of Patient Handling products to help improve patient outcomes and caregiver satisfaction.

Caregiver Engagement icon

The safety and engagement of your staff are key to your facility’s success. Stryker equipment is designed in partnership with nurses. We take the time to gain valuable insight and conduct research directly with those who use our equipment so the solutions we provide can truly simplify the daily tasks of caregivers while driving efficiency throughout the hospital. Our BackSmart design philosophy uses advanced ergonomics to reduce the awkward bending and reaching that can often lead to cumulative trauma. Features on Stryker equipment have been proven to reduce caregiver injuries, enhance staff satisfaction, and improve efficiency in hospitals around the country and around the world.
Patient Satisfaction icon

With HCAHPS scores now directly affecting hospital funding, patient satisfaction is more important than ever. From the smooth ride of our Prime Series Stretchers to the comforting therapy our Temperature Management portfolio offers, to our partnership with the Michael Graves Design Firm to create furnishings to support a healing environment, Stryker Patient Handling products deliver on patient satisfaction and help elevate the standard of care patients receive.
Improved Outcomes icon

At Stryker, we believe that with the right technology and processes in place, adverse and never events can be prevented and patient outcomes can improve. Based on this idea, we were the first to market with the Chaperone Stretcher Exit System, which alerts caregivers if patients leave the stretcher, which can be important for fall- or flight-risk patients.

We also revolutionized the market on Stretcher Surfaces with the Pioneer Pressure Redistribution Surface. As the first of its kind, this surface helps reduce the risk of skin breakdown through continuous weight and position adjustment.

Surgical site infections are also a key focus when it comes to never events. The Mistral-Air Forced Air Warming System helps regulate normothermia during the OR process, which has proved to be a key part of reducing the risk of surgical site infections.

Stryker Patient Handling products work in conjunction with your facility’s protocols and initiatives to help improve patient outcomes.


Efficiency icon

In today’s competitive healthcare environment, both hospitals and caregivers are asked to do more with less. Hospitals have higher patient-to-nurse ratios, more paperwork and more accountability. Caregivers are dealing with more protocols, a growing patient population and job-related injuries.

Stryker Patient Handling products help caregivers provide complete care through intuitive design that becomes a natural part of their daily tasks. Our products also help reduce the amount of time and effort associated with activities like patient positioning and long transports. This helps improve patient throughput, and ultimately the hospital’s bottom line.

Account Support icon

From caregiver surveys and equipment evaluations to new equipment implementation and training, Stryker offers additional support with every one of our products at no additional charge. It’s not just about the added value. It’s about providing outstanding customer service to you and your staff. Our ProCare Service Solutions will help ensure product upkeep and preventive maintenance over the life of the product so your equipment stays in your units, and not in the Biomed department.
