Reflex Handling and Storage  offer medical castors (casters) that have unique and exacting motion control needs. These medical castors are vital to healthcare and institutional industries. Without exceptional medical castors, healthcare institutions would cease to operate smoothly.

Wheel and medical castor assemblies not only have to move along multiple axes, but they have to do so in a variety of environments and conditions. If they fail to perform, people’s welfare could be compromised.

The most common mistake when fitting castors is to fit wheel diameters too small for the real needs of the trolley and its user. The surveys, both in Australia and overseas, show again and again that small castors which get caught in uneven floors, ridges, gaps and holes, cause many injuries.

Large diameter wheels, as against small wheels, will often add much less than 10% to the cost of the trolley, and yet make that trolley 500% easier to use. Smaller castors can still be used in restricted circumstances, for instance, around the beds for use on the lightest equipment. Research shows that large diameter wheels reduce forces for all trolley movements.

The following are the applications of Castors (casters)
