As important as ensuring that the aids provide safety and comfort for the patient is considering ergonomics and the work environment for those who will be using them. Therefore, we continuously work purposefully to expand and strengthen our range of good and intuitive solutions.

Having equipment that is user-friendly and easily accessible makes it easier to achieve the goal of ergonomics, even when every minute counts.

Easier Patient Transfer

Our equipment is tailored to meet the demands of transferring heavy patients in various situations and environments. Our range includes mattresses, slide sheets, glide boards, and various stretcher solutions. The mattresses and transfer sheets are specially treated to optimize sliding function, making it easier to move patients along the floor or down stairs without the need for lifting. The products also take into account limited workspace.

Our solutions for transferring and moving bariatric patients are developed with a focus on safety and ergonomics. The Ferno XL glide board is suitable for larger patients, while the Minitranz transfer stretcher with slide material on the underside is ideal for tight spaces.

Movement Restriction

Ferno Norden offers advanced systems for movement restriction of larger patients. The EasyFix Plus vacuum mattress provides easy movement restriction and enables gentle patient transfer in various conditions such as trauma, unconsciousness, and fractures.

By adding the "Step by Step" staircase set, heavy patients can be moved without unnecessary lifting, even on stairs. The Extender kit for the "Scoop EXL" allows for extending the Scoop stretcher to meet the requirements for proper handling during movement restriction, also for this patient group.
