Abstract

A device (10) for assisted omnidirectional movement of hospital beds (12) and other omnidirectionally mobile loads, comprising: an L-shaped base structure (40); a first motor-driven steering wheel (41) set along a first arm of said L-shaped base structure (40); a second motor-driven steering wheel (42) set along a second arm of said L- shaped base structure (40); a third wheel (43) set in the corner point of said L-shaped base structure (40); said base structure (40) comprises means (30, 35) for engagement to said hospital beds (12) and other omnidirectionally mobile loads; and control means (50) to cause rotation and orientation said first motor-driven steering wheel (41) and said second motor-driven steering wheel (42); where said hospital beds (12) and other mobile loads comprise wheels (14), and the weight of said hospital beds (12) and other mobile loads is sustained only by said wheels (14).
