Our Prime Series stretchers are designed to reduce physical strain on clinicians, enhance comfort during patient transport and drive hospital efficiency. Transporting heavier patients in a hospital gurney is now easier with Stryker's advanced mobility, while electric functionality gives patients the independence to adjust themselves without calling for caregiver assistance. Fully equipped and highly configurable, our Prime Series stretchers allow you to create a solution that meets your specific needs.
Noisy, chaotic and fast-paced—the emergency department never stops. With more patients and fewer nurses3, it can be challenging to not only set bed exit, but also to locate the right stretcher when an alarm is activated. And those actions have serious consequences.
Every year, nearly 1 million patients in the US experience a fall at the hospital1, with a significant number of these falls likely occurring in the emergency department. In addition to the devastating impact of lives lost, a fall can cost up to $32,2152 per episode of injury and take a serious toll on care team morale.
But falls don’t have to be the norm.

More than 90% of U.S. EDs report feeling stressed beyond the breaking point, at least some of the time.

Enhanced local monitoring
Local monitoring capabilities make it easy to acknowledge bed exit alarms in loud, fast-paced environments with the ability to have both the corridor light and the enhanced footboard display illuminate when bed exit is triggered.
For centralized monitoring, our Vision dashboard displays what you need to know in near real-time, including an at-a-glance view of the stretcher's location, fall-risk status, bed exit status and more.
For on-the-go monitoring and rapid response times, Prime Connect can send notifications to the right care team members through Vocera Engage†.
Empower your team with Prime Connect—Stryker’s first smart, connected stretcher.
With both visual and audible bed exit alarms, Prime Connect can communicate with the nurse call dome light, a Vocera Badge, or the nurse’s station through Vision to help enable fall protocol compliance from anywhere in your facility.
*Prime Connect kits are available for pre-sale to upgrade Prime Series electric stretchers equipped with bed exit and manufactured in 2018 or later. New Prime Connect stretchers will be available in 2024.
Prime Connect can be plugged into your existing nurse call system, enabling the transmission of bed exit alarms through the system itself.
The stretcher’s wireless system can integrate with our web applications, such as the Vision dashboard and Smart Equipment Management, as well as a wide range of our Vocera products for streamlined communication and workflows and confident patient care.
