e-SMART: Electric central locking castor

Manner® SMART castor series

Manner has developed SMART castor series for medical and rehabilitation equipment. Manner® e-SMART is equipped with a unique locking system. The locking is operated by an electric motor. Manner® SMART: Easy-to-reach manually locked equipment castor. Both locking pedal and lock release pedal are always in view and in reach.

Manner e-SMART

The Manner® e-SMART castor with electric control system is designed for equipment that require central locking. The locking and releasing of the wheels can easily be controlled by a control panel or a hand control. The patented castor provides superior ergonomics and safety.

These benefits increase the efficiency and facilitate daily routines in the field of medical care and rehabilitation and wherever castors with central locking are needed. The elimination of unnecessary movements and adjustments to hospital beds and other medical equipment reduces stress, and increases the well-being of patients and medical staff.

Maintenance-free castors ensure high usability, and the clever castor attachment enables lightweight and impressive equipment design. Remote castor locking enables medical staff to cope at work by reducing the risk of injuries and attrition. There are no wearing components, no adjustments needed. Thanks to special ball bearing, the castors keep on rolling and turning smoothly throughout their entire life cycle. There are two castor options: total lock or directional lock.

The structure of the Manner SMART locking mechanism is designed to function reliably and safely. The control system includes a motion  detector as standard: automatic locking while the equipment is not moving, anti-locking while not moving.

The Manner® e-SMART castor is available with Linak and TiMotion control systems, the Dewert control system will be available later. The OEMs have an  option to develop own control systems.
