Prime TC

patient transport chair

Every aspect of the Prime TC seated transport chair is designed to help create a welcoming and safe environment. Prime TC is not your ordinary wheelchair and redesigned the way we think about seated patient transport. The BackSmart ergonomics have been incorporated into the design to help reduce the bending and reaching that may be associated with caregiver injury. A rigid frame helps enhance durability while reducing the risk of theft. This investment in the well-being of patients and caregivers tells them you care about their comfort and safety.

Helping drive better patient outcomes

The patient experience is critical to the success of your organization.

Our patient Transport Chair was designed to help reduce the risk of adverse events like patient falls and infection while enhancing the patient experience, all in an effort to maximize your reimbursements.

One-touch central brake

This brake enhances caregiver efficiency and is foot-operated to help reduce bending and reaching. Enclosed mechanics protect the braking system from varying climates, while integrated anti-tip wheels increase safety.

Stand assist armrests

Uniquely designed, these armrests feature a raised and extended touchpoint for patients during ingress and egress to encourage nose-over-toes positioning. Armrests fold back easily for better patient access.

BackSmart push handles

Upright, extended handles allow caregivers to position their elbows at an ergonomic 90-degree angle during transport and accommodate caregivers of virtually any height.

Upright footrests provide a clear path to help reduce trip hazards

Flip-up footrests

The footrests remain in an upright position to provide a clear path of patient ingress and egress, which helps reduce trip hazards for patients and caregivers. Foot-operated levers allow caregivers to position patients with reduced bending and help prevent transfer of germs and debris from touching dirty footrests. With Swing Away functionality, an intuitive foot-operated button swings footrests back and out of the way to provide closer access to beds, cars or tables, and offers unobstructed access to patients.

Long-lasting, seamless design

Molded plastic and powder-coated steel eliminate fabric rips and reduce the risk of rust that can be difficult to clean and often harbors infectious bacteria. A simple, power-washable frame makes cleaning quick and easy.
