Development of an articulated motorised trolley

Design (from conception) and production of the first units of an articulated motorised trolley to facilitate internal transport at hospital complexes. The trolley's motorised central wheel and articulated structure make it suitable for navigating irregular terrain and other obstacles and ensure sufficient traction of the drive wheel regardless of the load. This keeps the motorised wheel on a linear course and enables changes in direction with minimal effort by the user. The motorisation moreover ensures optimal manoeuvrability and steering. The product is internationally patented. All-terrain trolleys are often loaded beyond the ergonomically acceptable limits, forcing users to strain and risk back injuries that can cause them to miss work.
