LINCO medical casters are the ideal solution and application to any medical device or equipment. Medical casters are specifically designed for use on medical beds. With exposure to a multitude of fluids and cleaning agents, medical casters are easy to clean. With their anti-permeable materials, bacteria and viruses have little to nowhere to hide and are easily eradicated. Medical grade casters are also preferred for their durability and longevity. In a hospital or other medical setting, there is little to no time stop and repair or replace a caster wheel especially in an emergency or high use time.
Due to the nature of the medical industry, casters for medical usage require special considerations. Exposure to fluids and chemicals often require frequent wash-downs, and quiet mobility provides recovering patients with one less distraction. Chrome, Stainless Steel, and Nylon-bodied casters are rust resistant and can withstand exposure to chemicals and washdowns. Precision bearings in both swivel raceways and wheels provide a smooth, quiet ride for both cart and patient. While they may be labeled "medical," these casters are also great for any environment where chemicals are possible, or when a quiet caster is preferred.
Medical casters are particularly useful with hospital beds. Hospital bed casters are preferred in a hospital for many reasons. First, hospital bed casters are built from a nylon material that is soft and quiet. The soft material is important because it allows medical professionals to smoothly move a patient from one place to the other. Patients recovering from surgery or a serious injury need a smooth transfer from one place to the next so that their recovery or injuries aren’t further agitated. Likewise, medical casters are quiet which is also an important feature for injured and recovering patients as you would not want noise disturbing their rest. Made of stainless steel, hospital bed wheels are a good choice for a medical setting because they can be cleaned with corrosive materials such as bleach without the fear of having them rust and fall apart. LINCO offers a wide range of medical casters in many sizes, colors, mounts, and braking or nonbreaking options.
