A Space-Saving Folding Gurney

The Olympic Fold-Up Gurney™ is featherlight – weighs only 22 pounds – yet incredibly strong.

We use large diameter, thick-walled tubing, and permanently weld all structural joints, so there is nothing to work loose, wobble or bend, allowing you to confidently transport patients up to 200 pounds with ease.

Removable Stretchers that Save Backs

The top of the Fold-Up is a removable Stretcher that makes it easy to lift and lower heavier dogs – and reduces back injuries. Holes on the ends of the stretcher fit over posts on the cart. The stretcher is held securely – yet lifts off quickly.

Now… Lift the Stretcher, not the Patient.

With an Olympic Fold-Up, you take the stretcher to where the patient is – whether it’s in the back of a vehicle or on the floor – and you slide the patient onto the stretcher. This means no more awkward lifting of active patients, a major source of back injuries. 

Converts Instantly from Transport to Exam Use

The Fold-Up Gurney includes both a Soft Stretcher and a Hard Stretcher. Both are radiolucent and can go straight to x-ray for gross examination. The soft stretcher will comfortably cocoon an injured patient. The hard stretcher serves both as a spine board and as an extra exam or treatment table.  Both include 2 Velcro® straps.

One Person Can Roll it Anywhere

Operators are always surprised at how easy it is to roll and steer a Fold-Up Gurney. It is a great labor saver, because just one person can safely roll a heavy dog down narrow hallways, turn tight corners, and move between crowded exam rooms, x-ray, surgery and recovery areas. Steering handles at both ends add to the maneuverability. Ideal for mobile practices.

Compact Storage Compact Storage – Only 8 inches deep. Always read to use.

Our experience with the Olympic Fold-Up Gurney has been amazing. It replaced another soft stretcher that we used without a gurney. It has been fantastic for rolling our bigger/sedated patients from surgery to recovery to radiology. I am very happy with this product and will be purchasing from this company again! Thanks.

This past year, a generous donor approached the veterinary team at the John Ball Zoo asking what piece of  equipment they may be able to purchase for the zoo that could make a practical daily difference. After much discussion, we decided on the Olympic Fold-Up Gurney, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. This gurney has combined the convenience of a compact, lightweight, easily stored piece of equipment with the versatility that we didn’t even realize we needed. Not only has the gurney served in the traditional role of patient transport, but with the tabletop option, we have been able to utilize the table to stage equipment during larger procedures and have a portable exam table to take with us when we work on site in the zoo. This gurney has really proven to be an excellent addition to the John Ball Zoo’s animal hospital in so many ways.
