Ferno PowerFlexX

Every year,ÜJEMS showcases recently released products designed to help EMS providers do their jobs more efficiently and safely. This March, theÜJEMS product review team spent two days combing the exhibit hall at the 24th annual EMS Today Conference & Exposition in Baltimore. The team of seasoned field providers, educators and EMS procurement specialists met with 227 exhibitors, reviewing products recently introduced to our industry and asking about product design, rationale, function and practical application for prehospital medicine. These are the team's picks for the hottest new products unveiled within the previous six months.

Super-Charged Stretcher for Tight SpacesÜ

The PowerFlexX from Ferno, a powered cot that can lift 700 lbs., has an updated set of head wheels that can now swing up, not just down, to make fitting the cot in tight spaces, like elevators, easier. In addition, Ferno's Integrated Charging System attaches to the cot fastener and ensures the PowerFlexX will be powered and ready go. The wiring plugs into a floor receptacle using heavy-duty, shielded electrical connectors that supply current only when the cot is locked in the fastener.
