Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9930662A1] A patient transport system for transporting a patient from a bed to a stretcher or vice versa, using a bed sheet (80) and a conveyor (200) attached to the bed (10) or the stretcher. A first end of the sheet is removably attached to the conveyor and a second end of the sheet is free. The sheet is adapted to be positioned onto the patient supporting member of the bed or stretcher. The conveyor includes a roller (42) received by bearings (44). The roller can be removably received by the bearings. The roller can also include a telescopic arrangement so that its length can be adjusted. A pawl and ratchet assembly can be provided on the conveyor to prevent unwinding of the conveyor. The sheet is removably attached to the roller by adhesive tape or a clip (202) arrangement. A flexible belt (206) attaches the clip to the conveyor and is removably secured to the roller. The clip includes a body member (210) having a recess with a plug (212) received therein.
