Flipper / Products and Application


Stretchers are frequently used by medical personnel to transport patients with disabilities quickly and safely. Conventional stretchers have several disadvantages such as being oversized, nonwashable, and fragile. Accordingly, improvements have been made after consulting professional medical advisors to develop a portable, disassemblable, and washable stretcher, called the “Flipper,” to improve medical efficiency and product durability.
