The ‘Trinity EBC’ design evolved from engaging with hospital staff, bed manufacturers and providers of bedding control systems.

It was identified that ‘Trinity EBC’ needed to address the requirements and time constraints of hospital staff, while integrating into existing systems.

From discussions with hospital staff it was identified that one of the biggest causes of falls in hospitals is due to people leaning against non-restrained equipment. This occurs because users either don’t have the time or are obstructed from locking all castors on a hospital bed.

The challenge was developing a solution to fit various bed designs whilst offering intuitive control systems to new users and product environments.

‘Trinity EBC’ allows for a safe, easy to use system to be easily integrated into complex designs- paving the way for safer, patient-focused solutions and maintaining a “human” approach to classical medical care.


Detailed engineering design and analysis has assisted Fallshaw to transition from manufacturing traditional industrial pressed metal castors to a modern design using injection moulded composite materials in a high tech product. ‘Trinity EBC’ is designed for easy infield service and maintenance in line with the servicing requirements of beds.

This product is proudly Australian made at Fallshaw’s Melbourne based manufacturing facility.
