Nurture Pocket Cart

The Nurture Pocket Cart is designed with Caregivers (Nurses) in mind.

To help create better workflow and patient connection, caregivers often put their own wellbeing at risk. Pocket offers a solution that closes the gap between worktools, technology and, most of all, patients. When this happens, caregivers are less prone to injury, and can provide better care.

As healthcare technologies, procedures, and facilities continue to evolve, Pocket’s essential design remains current, supporting new technological platforms and devices. Pocket can be equipped with a variety of unique features. Though it’s true beauty lies in how little it needs. Its responsive, flexible, simple design is prepared for what’s around the corner, today, tomorrow and five years from now.
