One of the interesting pieces of equipment spotted at the ICCFA convention and expo: The Body Scoop.

The Body Scoop is a ceiling mounted lift system that funeral homes and morgues use to move bodies. Check out the video with your faithful correspondent getting a ride from table to casket!

Some key benefits of using the Body Scoop:

  • Eliminate back strain
  • Reduce injuries and liability
  • Save time with one-person transfers – table to casket
  • Lifts up to 1,000 pounds
  • Maneuver effortlessly over entire prep area

Most folks probably don’t think about how the bodies get moved around behind the scenes at a funeral home. Sometimes straps and manual hydraulic lifts are used.

This system saves man-hours and eliminates the need for other less graceful ways to move the deceased.
