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

  • Initially our customers were sceptical on how the technology worked and if it was proven but with the documentation provided this has helped give the customer confidence that it works in a true real-life environment based on testing as well as laboratory conditions. Using the well-recognised brand along with excellent technical and sales support enabled us to reach into other markets not otherwise available, such as healthcare.

  • We chose to work with BioCote as it is the leading brand in this field and a brand we felt we could trust. We found the staff to be extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and reliable; they are truly experts in all things antimicrobial! Partnering with BioCote has benefited Rosewood for these reasons but also because it has meant that we are now associated with another quality brand.

  • I would recommend BioCote to other companies. They are very easy to work with, have fast solutions, and are always interested in our business. Plus, should any problems arise, they always help us solve them.
