Able Innovations

Able Innovations™’ mission is to develop innovative, robotic technologies that protect front-line staff from career-ending injuries and burnout by automating the task of lateral patient transfers. The patient transfer equipment in use today is unsafe, inefficient, and undignified for all parties involved. Currently, between 2-8 staff are required to exert back-breaking effort to transfer a single patient. The problem is especially relevant today, as many facilities battle short-staffing and burnout. Able’s ALTA Platform™, solves the repetitive and painful task of lateral supine patient transfers (e.g., moving patients from beds to stretchers, imaging tables, etc.) by allowing staff to conduct effortless, contactless transfers using a single caregiver. The ALTA Platform™ delivers a product that is intuitive and easy to operate, allowing front-line staff to do more with less.
