E-Z 02 LIFT
A SAFER WAY TO HANDLE & STORE OXYGEN CYLINDERS
Every ambulance carries oxygen for patient care. Loading and unloading these bulky oxygen bottles is hard work – and it’s dangerous! According to a 2012 study from NAEMT, half of all EMS workers suffer back pain annually from handling such equipment. In addition, one in four EMS practitioners will suffer a career ending back injury within the first four years of service.
The E-Z 02 Lift is a compact oxygen cylinder lift and storage compartment. This built-in hydraulic cylinder lift offers a smaller footprint than traditional lifts. It is also less cumbersome than an electric scissor lift option. It is available on all Braun ambulance models, makes handling oxygen cylinders easier and safer.
HOW THE E-Z 02 LIFT WORKS
The E-Z 02 Lift utilizes a nitrogen filled gas spring to raise and lower the oxygen bottle into a stowed position, without electrical components. This eliminates work safety hazards and back injuries associated with lifting heavy oxygen bottles. It also protects your module by reducing damage to the ambulance compartment, as the tank carefully moves in and out of the box. Lastly, the E-Z 02 Lift frees up space by storing the bottle in the compartment door to maximize the storage area for life saving equipment.
