Stretcher Cassette Lift | Mobility Networks Group

Stretcher Cassette Lift

This rear access stretcher lift is a specialist, telescopic accessible platform that is fully-automatic and deploys from an underfloor cassette. Standard and Bariatric versions are available.

It has been designed in close collaboration with major ambulance body builders and manufacturers of the latest specification stretchers. The lift is stowed externally under the ambulance floor in a compact and unobtrusive galvanised cassette box that protects the platform, bridging plate and mechanisms from corrosion.

When operated via a simple two-button remote control, the lift will automatically deploy in less than 60 seconds. A safe, strong extended platform is then available with handrails for lifting and lowering patients. All platform surfaces are covered in high grip cleating and automatic ‘roll-off stops’ ensure safety at all times.

Its long 1780mm platform gives adequate room for all front line ambulance personnel and their stretcher-bound patients, to travel together during lifting or lowering. This increases safety and the ability for paramedics to fully attend to patient needs during transfer. Through advanced engineering, this longer platform still remains completely stable when in operation and Mobility Networks fitters can provide super-strength securement to the vehicle floor.

It is suitable for the vast majority of ambulances across the world and is ideal for high traffic usage. Precision-engineered mechanisms, high quality components and proven world-class electronics deliver steady and smooth lifting. 

Bariatric 500kg SWL upgrade

The bariatric version is the only fully automatic lift of its kind in the world. It is the strongest and largest stretcher cassette lift available today. Super-strengthened mechanisms and components provide stable, smooth lifting and this powered platform can be tailored to suit exact specifications.
