Wheels That Excel In Medical Environments
SAVING MEDICAL FACILITY FLOORS BY DISPELLING DEBRIS
In medical environments, the main concern is the comfort and happiness of patients. Wheels and casters for medical equipment, hospitals, and similar environments must be quiet, clean, and non-marking. That’s why Caster Connection offers the CC Apex line of wheels and casters: wheels that have been proven to excel in medical use.
Let Caster Connection help you select the right product the first time, saving you money and hassle.
CC APEX WHEELS ADAPT TO THE HOSPITAL ENVIRONMENT
The maintenance department of a local hospital used carts that had to be moved over varying types of flooring, and sometimes different heights. The polyurethane on iron wheels the hospital used were marking the floors, difficult to push, and made noise loud enough to be heard by patients.
A Caster Connection Regional Sales Manager (RSM) worked with the hospital to find wheels that could maneuver over different floor types, while also reducing push/pull force and decibel levels. Knowing that the wheel had solved similar problems in several other industries, the RSM recommended the 8" CC Apex for a trial run.
The introductory phase involved replacing all of the wheels on one cart with the CC Apex. Several different employees used the cart, and they began choosing this cart over the others. Workers remarked on how easy it was to push, how the wheels remained intact and the floors remained clean, and how much quieter these wheels and casters were than their originals.
The trial period was such a success that the hospital replaced every wheel in the maintenance department with the CC Apex.
Remarked one employee after ten months of using the CC Apex: “I wish we had this wheel 20 years ago.”
