Stryker developed an Emergency Relief Bed for limited release during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an April 3 announcement.

Intended to support increased patient volumes due to the spread of COVID-19, Stryker's Emergency Relief Bed features a 30-degree head-of-bed angle to accommodate patients with respiratory problems. It is low to the ground and includes an attached IV pole.

Stryker expects to produce 10,000 of the beds per week and is working to make them available in select markets around the world.
