Meditek, a leader in innovative operating room products, is pleased to announce that its QA3 Patient Transport Stretcher has achieved the highest weight rating of any transport stretcher available in Canada.

It is the culmination of listening to frontline users about what they need to do their job properly, as well as years of research and development.

The new maximum weight capacity of the QA3, the highest for any non-bariatric stretcher, is 705 lbs. (320 kg). The latest version QA3 stretcher is the result of some of the most forward-thinking advancements in stretcher technology. It is ideal for transport, trauma, examination and intubation.

Not only does it have the highest weight rating, but it also boasts the lowest minimum height of any stretcher on the market, at a mere 18.75 inches from floor to top of deck. “Patients, in particular smaller or older patients, do not struggle as much with getting on or off the stretcher. If they are injured or have just had surgery, three inches is a big difference,” explains Brad Samuels, Marketing Manager at Meditek, “and by making it easier for the patient, it helps reduce injury to our dedicated medical professionals.”

Other examples of superior QA3’s stretcher advancements include:

  •     Care givers have access to all of the functions from the head end of the stretcher, which means they never have to leave a patient’s head area.
  •     The trendelenburg (head down) function works instantaneously from any height. This is a critical feature that no one else offers. In an emergency, when someone needs to administer CPR, you don’t want to be pumping up the stretcher in order to lower the head end.
  •     Side rails tuck under the stretcher, leaving a zero patient transfer gap.

“The QA3 is our gem. It is the culmination of listening to frontline users about what they need to do their job properly, as well as years of research and development,” explains Brad Samuels.

To complement the line of QA3 stretchers is the QA3 Trauma Stretcher, which is typically used in emergency departments. It features a full length radio-translucent platform suitable for digital or traditional X-Ray plates.
