Stretcher/Chairs, Mobile

Definition : Mobile hospital stretchers that can be converted from stretcher to chair (i.e., wheeled chairs) and back to stretchers without transferring the patient. Typically these devices can take several positions between a stretcher (horizontal platform) and a chair with a fully vertical back section; most of them permit vertical height adjustment when used as stretchers. Stretcher/chairs are used to decrease patient handling, avoiding patient transfer from reception or to examination, treatment, surgery, and discharge, reducing the possibility of injuries to both patients and staff.
