The Ferno Bariatric Push-Pull Handles have been designed by Ferno Australia in conjunction with various Australian ambulance services. They provide emergency personnel with ergonomically positioned handle(s) that allow head and foot end operators to safely and carefully guide and propel a bariatric patient up to 454 kg on stretcher when being transported in the stretcher’s lowest position.
Each handle kit is supplied with mount brackets and when fitted do not interfere with the stretcher’s operations. The handles can be purchased as a full head and foot end kit or individually. The head end handle kit attaches to the Powerflex stretcher frame while the foot end handle kit attaches to the Ferno LBS Jr.
