Antimicrobial Patient Stretchers

Schmitz logo

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 such as MRSA by up to 86% in 15 minutes, deactivate influenza A H1N1 and even reduce a strain of the coronavirus family 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.

What our partners say

  • The Decorative Panels Group have always been at the forefront of innovative products and as such following extensive research it was natural for us to enter the market with an antimicrobial product. Having met BioCote and been introduced to the effectiveness of the product, coupled with the impressive client portfolio they already had, we made the decision that they would be the ideal partner for us to work with.

  • Having now worked together for over 10 years we know each other well, our relationship continues to flourish on a foundation of trust, understanding and mutual respect. Like any relationship it has developed and improved over time but it is these qualities that have seen BioCote become a partner in the truest sense of the word.
