Stryker Emergency Care strives to be great partner for EMTs
Since 1994, Stryker Emergency Care has been a leader in emergency medical response and patient transport products, and the company continues to strive to be a great partner with emergency medical technicians to make their jobs easier.
Jillian Downey, an account manager for Stryker Emergency Care, said the company prides itself on being a trusted EMS partner.
“We build solutions that help improve patient outcomes and caregiver safety, bringing more power to you,” she said.
Downey said the company has committed itself to helping pre-hospital services achieve improved clinical outcomes and operational performance.
“Our focus is providing innovative patient transport, emergent care, and data solutions that are durable, reliable and easy to use,” she said.
Downey said some of the company’s most popular products right now are the LUCAS, LIFEPAK15, Power-PRO XT and the Power-LOAD. These technologically advanced products help to revolutionize patient care.
The LUCAS is a chest compression system, the LIFEPAK15 is a monitor/defibrillator, the Power-PRO XT is a powered ambulance cot and the Power-LOAD is a powered cot fastener.
In 2017, Seneca County EMS received grant funding through the Bureau of Workers Compensation to purchase Power-Pro XT powered ambulance cots and Power-LOAD cot fastener systems, which lift patients into ambulances and keep them secure. Every first-run squad in the county has one of the systems installed.
SCEMS Director Ken Majors said the cots make a world of difference for his personnel.
“Stryker power pro cots and lift loads make the job of the EMS personnel much safer and easier than the older cot systems,” he said. “They also provide a much safer and more secure ride for the patient. They are crash tested and are more secure in the ambulance than older systems.”
Not only do the cots make the job easier for emergency medical technicians, but they can also be beneficial for their own health.
“They make lifting patients easier and safer,” Majors said. “They are much appreciated by the crews because they are a real back saver.”
Downey said she believes Styker is a unique company that EMS agencies should want to do business with.
“We are able to offer connected and integrated solutions and services that are durable, safe and easy to use,” she said.
Downey said she is happy to work with the Ohio EMS Chiefs Association.
“We always look forward to participating in events with OEMSCA,” she said. “We do business with almost all of the agencies that are members of the group. The feedback they provide assists us to be better partners to create solutions for better support and improved patient care.”
