Intuitive drive assist for lighter transport

IndiGo is the intuitive drive assistance that makes lighter transport available to any caregiver with just a touch – for safety and simplicity.

Transporting patients in hospital beds is a common patient handling task that can pose significant ergonomic risks for involved caregivers, such as nurses, porters and transport team members.(1) At Arjo, we believe the right transport assist solution should ensure you always have enough time and energy left for the job that matters most: caring for patients.

For hospitals looking to reduce ergonomic risk and support efficient workflows, IndiGo is the powered 5th wheel that aims to offer a helping hand in order to make every transport as safe, controlled and simple as possible.

Supports caregiver and patient safety
Intuitive ‘grab-and-go’ operation
Easy and seamless workflow integration

IndiGo can be supplied factory-fitted to new Enterprise and Citadel beds, or it can be retrofitted to select frames, including Enterprise 5000X, Enterprise 8000X, Enterprise 9000X and Citadel Patient Care System.
