Turn your trolley or hospital bed into a powerful machine with the Motorised Fifth Wheel! This innovative solution helps convert manual push trolleys and hospital beds into power drive devices. Ergonomically designed, the wheel helps operators move heavy loads more efficiently and safely.

Solve manual handling problems by retrofitting this powerful device to an existing trolley or hospital bed. The Motorised Fifth Wheel is an incredible solution capable of moving up to 400 kg on a 6° incline and it eliminates physical strain often caused by manually pushing/pulling heavy loads. It is a handy solution that makes work easy and removes the risk of injury from manually pushing loads.

The Motorised Fifth Wheel kit includes a large polyurethane drive wheel, slide-out battery carriage, battery charger and an ergonomically designed hand grip. The powered system works collectively with the other four wheels to move heavy loads without effort. The handlebars on the human interface can be configured to adapt to almost any trolley or hospital bed.

Additional Information

Introduce a Motorised Fifth Wheel and start moving heavy loads faster!

Many companies seek a way to improve their manual handling activities. Employees who are pushing and pulling tall heavy trolleys numerous times a day can be exposed to repetitive injuries or strains. These stresses, caused by extensive physical labour tasks, can be catastrophic and approximately 60% of workplace injuries within the healthcare industry are directly associated with pushing/reversing trolleys, beds and wheelchairs (especially when moving up and down slopes and rough surfaces).

If your staff is at risk of manual handling injuries, then the answer is simple – motorise your trolleys and start working efficiently, effectively and productively. The Motorised Fifth Wheel is a retrofittable kit for converting hospital beds and trolleys into powered ones.
