KCI acquires TechniMotion patient handling technologies

Kinetic Concepts (KCI) has acquired all of the assets and intellectual property of TechniMotion Medical, an Austin, Texas-based company that designs and develops ergonomic patient handling systems for acute and post-acute patient care.

KCI’s Therapeutic Support Systems (TSS) division will market the products, which promote safe patient handling.

TSS provides a portfolio of beds, mattress replacement systems, and other products for wound care, bariatric care and critical care settings.

Therapeutic Support Systems global president Steve Seidel said the novel systems from TechniMotion are a natural fit to their suite of products that are focused on providing a continuum of care and improved patient outcomes.

"Unlike other patient lifts for instance, TechniMotion’s lift provides greater patient comfort and can be handled by just one caregiver, reducing the risk of injury and bringing real efficiencies to the hospital and home care setting," Seidel said.
