Prime Zoom Motorized Patient Trolley

Prime Zoom Motorized Patient TrolleyIncreasing nursing shortage and heavier patient populations have left caregivers overworked. Improving efficiency in a hospital has become really crucial.

Applying advanced engineering practices alongside biomechanical science, Stryker developed the Zoom® Motorized Drive System. Zoom is designed to virtually eliminate the strenuous pushing and pulling during the transport of heavy patients, which can often increase patient transport times or require additional caregiver support.
