Low-cost patient transportation track with convertible wheelchair and stretcher for inter building patient transfer in tertiary care hospital: Prioritizing the Patient safety

During the intrahospital and interbuilding transfer of patients for admissions or other diagnostic procedures, issues like the fall of the patient from the stretcher, the exertion of patient attendants, the lack of signage on the way, the danger of vehicular road traffic accidents, and the helplessness of attendants during the transport of the patient lead to anxiety and a delay in the treatment.

As a solution to finding the most comfortable, safe, and effortless mode of patient transfer, the proposed solution is to design a convertible wheelchair with a stretcher and smooth designated metallic tracks for effortless movement of the convertible wheelchair. This project may be adopted by apex care hospitals for patient safety.
