Abstract

Covid-19 can be transmitted from humans to humans through close contact and droplets. It is allegedly, according to experts, also possible through the air. The people most at risk of contracting this disease are in close contact with Covid-19 patients, namely medical personnel who treat Covid-19 patients. One of the main procedures is how to mobilize Covid-19 patients, which in this case requires specialized systems and equipment to avoid direct exposure to the virus. The problem is the transmission of the infection can occur during the evacuation of Covid-19 patients by the medical team. In general, a stretcher is an imported product. It is complicated to obtain in the condition of the Covid-19 pandemic, nor is there a stretcher with a unique design for the evacuation of Covid-19 patients that can prevent exposure to the virus to medical personnel and the surrounding environment. Furthermore, it is striving to produce a stretcher by the domestic industry. The availability of a unique stretcher design to remove Covid-19 patients can prevent exposure to the virus to medical personnel. This paper discusses the stretcher's structure and material for the transfer of Covid-19 patients. The research methodology used is direct observation of stretcher designs that have been sold commercially. Furthermore, a numerical simulation process is carried out by statically loading the stretcher structure. This research output is in the form of the analysis of stretcher's structure and material for Covid-19 patients, including variations of stretcher's design and material of the pipe structure.
