90 years of experience have made SCHMITZ u. Söhne one of the leading international manufacturers of medical products. The company’s passion for operating tables with specialised accessories and workstations for gynaecology, including video colposcopy, urology, proctology and obstetrics is reflected in the quality, mobility, functionality and design of all SCHMITZ products.

Functional trolleys, patient stretchers, furniture for operating theatres and outpatient departments as well as general medical furniture complete the SCHMITZ product portfolio for hospitals and medical practices.

Since 1930, the family-run company, now in its fourth generation, has been standing for expertise, reliability, solidity and consistency. In addition to two German locations, the company is represented internationally by seven branch offices in Europe, USA, Latin America and Asia.

Setting the standard for their STL patient stretchers, SCHMITZ partnered with BioCote® to incorporate antimicrobial technology into areas of the transport system, such as side guards, release buttons, levers, push-bars and the release of the backrest adjustment. Manufactured into the colour-neutral coating of these key touchpoint areas, BioCote® technology has been proven to reduce bacteria by 90% in 2 hours.

With a strong focus on product innovation, the SCHMITZ STL patient stretcher is a winner of the reddot Design Award, a benchmark in quality and design. This is a testament to SCHMITZ’s commitment to delivering products which are superior in quality, appearance, ergonomics and functionality – an approach that continues to win over customers worldwide.
