Colson Launch a Castor to Make Life Easier For Carers


Colson will unveil its new MediMaster castor at Naidex Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham on 28th April – 1st MAY.

Initially designed for use on patient hoists, MediMaster offers high performance in many other general applications.

MediMaster benefits from four precision ball bearings in its construction: one located in each wheel and two in the body to deliver unparalleled performance in terms of load capacity and – most significantly – very low rolling and turning resistance, reducing the effort required to manoeuvre any hoist using Colson MediMaster castors to an impressively low level. The lightweight thermoplastic construction offers a high strength and visually appealing castor.

MediMaster is available with 100mm wheel diameter and a standard fitting height of 120mm and 100kg load capacity. There is also the option of a Lo-Hite version with a fitting height  of only 104mm  even though it retains the 100mm diameter wheels and both are available as swivel and  wheel brake.

Carers will welcome this innovation, with patient weights increasing and manual handling issues a priority with all, including Health & Safety regulators.
Of course, MediMaster castors can be supplied with the Suppress antimicrobial treatment, to assist in the fight against hospital-acquired infections such as MRSA, E-coli and C-diff.
