It is estimated that the healthcare industry is spending over $7 billion annually on employee back related injuries.  Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) conduct relatively few inspections of healthcare facilities within the calendar year compared to other sites and facilities such as construction. Healthcare employers reported 653,900 workplace injuries throughout 2010. 

Many injuries sustained by healthcare employees are due to manual pushing and pulling of equipment carts and bins, as well as patient transport.  Power Drive Systems eliminate any manual handling by operators, reducing the risk of serious injury or straining.  By motorizing carts, bins and transport chairs, you are sizably decreasing the costs of injuries to employees and increasing efficiency by transporting heavier loads.
