Transfer mattress for body removal services

The story behind Bodypod

In 2016, Dela Funeral Transport tested S-CAPEPLUS evacuation mattress to transfer a deceased on a steep, winding staircase. This was a situation in which a stretcher would have proved impossible to use. It was quickly discovered that the evacuation mattress wasn’t suitable for deathcare removals. This experience inspired us to find a solution. THe goal was to develop a reliable removal device that reduces physical stress for yourself and your employees. In addition, we wanted to be able to move the deceased in a humane way. The evacuation mattress was redesigned. And the Bodypod was born. We’re now on a mission:
‘Reduce lifting and physical stress for the funeral service employee.’

A body removal can be a very challenging and difficult task

Narrow hallways and tight corridors can make body removals extremely difficult for you and your colleagues.
This is why so many workers in the body removal industry have to deal with physical stress. With obesity on the rise, lifting becomes almost impossible in more and more situations.

What users are saying?

“The transfer tool is innovative. It allows our employees to transfer a deceased downstairs on a light-weight product in a humane way.
At the same time, we can reduce the physical stress for our employees.”

Martijn, Dela Funeral Transport, The Netherlands

“We have one of these and at first I was very sceptical as a company who have always used traditional methods. We used this for a bariatric into care service for 2 flights of narrow stairs and it really helped both the team and the family.”

Employee, Hemsell, UK

I’ve worked with this. It’s really super!
