Yorkshire-based funeral and mortuary equipment manufacturer Ferno has reported record sales of its Model 11-T Stretcher in Norway and Sweden.
Developed from Ferno’s successful Model 11 design, the Model 11-T features an innovative track system that allows for a more controlled removal of the deceased down stairs, which reduces the risk of injury to funeral and mortuary personnel.
Managing director of Ferno Jon Ellis said: “Since the Model 11-T was launched we have had some amazing feedback and it’s proving to be a popular solution. We found there was a gap in the market for a stretcher in the funeral and mortuary sector, which would provide easier transportation over uneven ground and down stairs.
“In the past six months we’ve had record sales in these countries and we expect this to continue as more of those in the industry recognise the usefulness of such an innovative product.”
