The CDC has identified the healthcare industry as one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy. As the number of workers increases, the amount of workplace injuries also increases. Back injuries are one of the most common forms of workplace injuries that occur in healthcare facilities, which are felt by many types of workers, from medical staff to maintenance employees. The CartCaddyLite electric cart puller can help workers avoid back strain and other work-related injuries.
The linen carts that are used to bring linens to patient rooms are often very large and not easy to move through the constricted hallways of a medical facility. With frequent visits to rooms, pushing the cart is often an agonizing duty for the worker involved. Many trips pushing a heavy cart can result in muscle strain. A linen cart puller can reduce the weight carried, as well as help with maneuvering through busy hallways. This makes the job much easier, less strenuous, and more efficient. The CartCaddyLite has a very tight turning radius, making this a versatile piece of equipment that can be easily moved in cramped and crowded facilities.
In any field that requires physical labor, there is a high risk of injury. In healthcare facilities, the workers need to be healthy and safe, as their job is to keep other individuals healthy and safe. The CartCaddyLite eliminates some of the stress associated with physically intensive tasks, such as pushing linen carts.
The CartCaddyLite is designed to have 6 hours of operator use. It comes with a 24-volt system and 2 12-volt batteries. This gives the user plenty of time to use the cart puller.
The variable speed twist is used for both forward and backward directions and ranges between 0-3 mph. This prevents development of carpal tunnel and gives the operator smooth control of maneuvering their load. The CartCaddyLite 3mph max speed allows the operator to efficiently move throughout large facilities, saving time.
The safety stop switch positioned at the back of the handlebar box immediately kills the power, and the machine comes to a rolling stop (about 2 ft.) to prevent any possible injury from operating the device. This feature is a must when buying any piece of cart pulling equipment.
The spring hitch option and customized attachment prevent you from having to fabricate multiple attachments on each of your carts or equipment. The CartCaddyLite’s attachment springs down and upward, attaching firmly and quickly to the bottom of your cart. With the CartCaddyLite connected to the cart, the operator can easily push, pull, or maneuver the cart as they need to.
The CartCaddyLite’s main design is to make maneuvering and pivoting your loads much easier. Once the arm is attached to the equipment, the puller is capable of a full 180-degree pivot. This helps prevent jack-knifing the cart when turning the front of it.
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.
The CartCaddyLite electric cart puller can help avoid back strain for many people in the healthcare industry. Doctors, nurses, technicians, maintenance workers, and more can benefit from using this piece of equipment to efficiently complete some of their day-to-day tasks, all while avoiding unnecessary workplace injuries.
Linen carts used to transport linens to and from patient rooms are often very large and difficult to move through the constricted hallways of a nursing home, clinic, or hospital. Pushing carts repeatedly throughout the day can cause chronic neck and back strain and pain for workers. The CartCaddyLite is a perfect solution: it reduces stress and cuts down the risk of workplace injuries.
