The CDC identified the healthcare industry as the second fastest growing sector of the economy. The increase of workers to this industry has also brought about an increase in workplace injuries. One type of injury, the dreaded back injury, can be felt by everyone from a nurse to a maintenance man to the staff making beds and delivering meals. The latter two groups can be helped to avoid the low back strain health care workers are susceptible to by the use of a CartCaddyLite Electric Cart Puller.
The linen carts that carry the linens to the patients’ rooms are large and not easily moved in the tight hallways and constricted spaces of a hospital or nursing home. The linen cart that is pushed from room to room may be overloaded to cut down on the trips to the linen closet. Unfortunately these scenarios may also increase the trips to the doctor’s office for the workers who are responsible for those duties. Having a linen cart puller can reduce the strain associated with maneuvering heavy loads and minimize the possibility of injuries associated with these stressful tasks.
Employees who have access to a cart puller will be more efficiently using their time and less likely to suffer a back injury while pushing around a fully loaded linen cart. The CartCaddyLite Electric Cart Pusher has a tight turning radius and is very easy to maneuver. This makes these versatile pieces of equipment perfect for use in facilities that are cramped, crowded or that have space constraints.
There is a possibility for injury in any field that involves regular physical labor. In order for a hospital or nursing facility to minimize this risk and keep valuable employees healthy they need to provide employees access to the right equipment. The CartCaddyLite can instantly eliminate some of the stress associated with these difficult jobs and create a safer work environment for employees.
The CartCaddyLite comes standard with a 24-volt system, 2 12-volt batteries, designed to give the operator 6-hours of continuous use, without moving a load, before recharging. The puller should have plenty of battery life to last an entire shift.
The Linen Cart Puller has a variable speed twist grip for forward and reverse directions from 0 to 3 mph. The ergonomically correct variable speed feature prevents carpal tunnel and allows the operator to maintain smooth control while intricately maneuvering his load. The CartCaddyLite’s ability to go 3 mph allows the machine to keep up with the operator without frustration from waiting for a slowly operating machine when operating the unit from point A to B through-out your facility.
The safety stop switch positioned at the back of the handle bar box immediately stops the machine when depressed to prevent any possible injury from operating the device. This feature is a must when buying any piece of cart puller equipment.
The spring hitch option and customized attachment prevent you from having to fabricate multiple attachments on everyone of your carts or equipment. The CartCaddyLite Electric Cart Pullers attachment springs down and upward, attaching firmly to the bottom of your cart. Now the operator can easily push, pull, or maneuver the cart.
The CartCaddyLite is designed for easy maneuvering and pivoting of your loads. After the arm is attached firmly to your carts or equipment, the puller can pivot a full 180 degrees under the arm. This feature allows for turning your loads a full 90 degrees without jack knifing your cart or manually turning the front of you cart.
The CartCaddyLite has the power for applications involving a wide variety of cart types including dollies, hand trucks, a linen cart, hospital carts, a maintenance cart, and a hospital bed. Our CartCaddyLite electric cart linen cart pusher has the ability to maneuver easily in extremely tight spaces.
