The importance of central locking for medical castors

Working in a care and hospital environment can be very demanding. Medical equipment like hospital beds need to be constantly stopped, pushed and continuously locked and unlocked. Some locking devices on castors even require the staff to search with their foot for the lever to activate locking. Most of the time two to four castors have to be locked one after the other. This takes up an enormous amount of time and reduces efficiency. The loss of time quickly leads to increased stress in order to make up for lost time. Increased stress, in turn, can quickly lead to careless mistakes in which, for example, castors that still need to be locked are overlooked or forgotten. This can lead to a strong risk factor for the nursing staff and the patients.

How does central locking work?

Central locking locks several castors together at the same time and in this way effectively safeguards the transport equipment against rolling away or shifting. In contrast to the individual lock, this system is connected to at least two castors and can also be activated directly on all castors.

Which areas need central locking?

This type of locking is useful for all areas of application where equipment has to be continuously moved and parked again. Central locking can be particularly recommended for the hospital sector, as hospital staff has to move hospital beds and medical devices from one area to the next. However, central locking is also highly recommended in the industrial sector, as it can also greatly reduce the ergonomic workload of staff here.

When is central locking recommended?

All in all, central locking is recommended wherever it is necessary to ensure the safe standing of the equipment. At the same time, a quick, easy and reliable actuation process is given.
