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.

Prevent unnecessary lifting injuries

Manual work may cause injury to your body’s joints, muscles, tendons, etc. While using the Bodypod, you can let gravity do the work on the staircase and prevent you from needing to lift. It will prevent dangerous situations and reduce the chance of injuries.

A thick foam mattress protects the deceased

And that’s not everything. This also helps to prevent damage to walls and stairs.

A quick transfer to the mortuary cot

Sometimes you cannot prevent lifting. For example in a situation where you need to transfer the deceased from the floor to the mortuary cots.

You can always use the handles on the longitudinal side of the Bodypod to simplify this transfer.
