The Stettler District Ambulance Association has purchased a new hydraulic stretcher for its new ambulance.

The Stettler District Ambulance Association has purchased its first Stryker Power-PRO XT hydraulic stretcher.

The Power-PRO XT reduces risk of cumulative trauma injuries, and lost or modified workdays.

Practitioners experience frequent spinal loading due to repetitive motions such as lifting, lowering, carrying, and bending.  Use of the Power-PRO XT has proven to reduce spinal loading, resulting in reduced injuries, lost or modified workdays and Worker's Compensation costs, and increased recruitment and retention.  The Stryker Power-PRO XT is becoming the industry standard of care.

An innovative battery-powered hydraulic system raises and lowers the patient at the touch of a button.

Utilizes an easy to use manual back-up system for all powered cot functions.

The retractable head section reduces footprint, and allows the cot to navigate very tight spaces in any height position.

A Stryker exclusive: automatic high-speed retracting feature saves precious seconds when loading and unloading.

Reduces worker's compensation costs, injuries, and lost and modified workdays, while improving recruitment and retention.

Management hopes to make this a standardized piece of equipment on its front line ambulances in the near future.
