“The MediGlider features & Benefits received favorable ratings by facility patient transporters initially and over the course of the beta study time period. The MediGlider proved to be intuitive to operate over relatively few patient transfer practices. Dedicated drivers mastered its operation and were able to operate the MediGlider for its intended design and purpose well within 1 working shift. No patient complaints were noted or recorded. The Mediglider was well received in the Operating Room, Diagnostic Medicine and Physical Therapy departments.”

“Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) are prevalent among health care workers worldwide and underreporting among nurses may mask the true impact of these injuries. Nursing staff are consistently among the top 10 occupations at risk for experiencing WMSDs and patient-handling tasks are the precipitating event in the majority of back injuries experienced among nursing staff. ”
