About Us

At HT Systems we’re dedicated to making a meaningful difference in people’s lives by using clever customer-centric design.  

Formed in 2018, we are building on over two decades of product development and research by the University of Canterbury.    We spent the past year working with a wide range of health professionals, carers and patients in real situations to ensure we can provide a comfortable, safe and easy to use solution. 

Revolutionising patient transfers

Our innovative Kera patient lifter quickly and easily assists a single carer to transfer frail and immobile patients between sitting positions. 

Current methods of moving people are slow, cumbersome and expensive and the result is over 4 injuries to health care workers per day in NZ.

Our simple mechanical lifter is light, quick and easy to use and the small footprint makes it ideal for negotiating tight spots and convenient to store.
