intuitive drive support



Esense built-in systems offer intuitive electric drive support to heavy mobile care products

The esense built-in systems can be added as an accessory to heavy mobile care products. It offers intuitive electric drive support for forwards, backwards and sideways driving.

Esense is the ideal solution to move heavy mobile care products. The intelligent system includes an electric drive wheel and sensors that measure push and pull force. This force is translated to a smooth drive support for forwards, backwards and sideways driving.

Esense built-in systems are available with various drives:

  • Fixed: provides basic electric drive support in forwards and backwards direction.
  • Up: features an electric lift mechanism, making it possible to disengage the drive wheel at any moment.
  • 360: adds sideways drive, making it most suitable for situations where manoeuvring in small spaces is required.
  • Compact: features a drive wheel with small diameter, ideal for integration in products with limited installation height.

Esense Fixed, Up, 360 and Compact drive systems are available in three variations: from basic to complete.

The esense built-in systems are available on a fast growing number of healthcare products:

Hospital beds
& stretchers

Device trolleys

Facility trolleys

Medical equipment
