The magazine Servicios de Emergencia conducted an interview with our CEO, Mr. Modesto Luengo last December and we would like to share it with you. Here is a summary.
Mr. Modesto is a legend in the medical transport sector in Spain, his personal experience as an ambulance technician drove him to create his company to meet the needs of those who have to work in ambulances.
The trajectory of KARTSANA
Founded in 1986 until today, it has been a challenging journey from transporting patients practically by weight, with the consequent back pain, to the current electric stretcher, with a hydraulic elevating system and a smooth handling that protects the TES from possible injuries, allowing him to focus on attending the patients. Electric stretchers represent a quantum leap that we pioneered.
The benefits of the electric stretcher
Undoubtedly, reducing effort and facilitating manoeuvrability for EMTs. Our POWER BRAVA TG-1000 allows 300 kg to be lifted unassisted, which not only facilitates the transfer of patients, but also allows the stretcher to be loaded into the ambulance along with the stretcher at the push of a button.
The rail for the electric ambulance stretcher, a great ally
The rail must be light and robust with suspension to ensure patient comfort. It should also be telescopic to facilitate loading and entry into the ambulance, and with lateral displacement to optimise space inside the ambulance and facilitate the work of the TES.
Always in continuous improvement
New regulations force us to adapt our products to the markets and improve their performance and use. For example, our SILVER TG-1100 electric stretcher, which is characterised by its lightness and robustness, satisfying the needs of type A and B ambulances for basic support with weight limitations.
