Stiegelmeyer beds in action for the ‘Notruf Hafenkante’ TV series
The officers of Hamburg’s Police Department 21 have been conducting investigations on the ZDF TV channel since January 4, 2007. The investigations often occur in close cooperation with the doctors and nurses of the Elbe Hospital where the injured victims and perpetrators receive treatment.
With an average of 3.6 million viewers per episode, “Notruf Hafenkante” is one of the most successful shows of the ZDF evening programme. The plots of the individual episodes are a mix of crime, hospital, and family shows. Until today, 275 episodes have been filmed in 11 seasons. The Hamburg Police recently awarded the show with the “Polizeistern (Police Star) 2017”. The Police Star has been awarded every year since 2006 to people and productions that have made an outstanding contribution to the public reputation and image of the Hamburg Police. Starting from the 12th season, different kinds of Stiegelmeyer products are used in the Elbe Hospital: the stable Mobilo stretcher, the flexible Vitano bedside cabinet, the innovative Puro hospital bed, and our Sicuro pesa intensive care bed. All products are currently cutting quite a figure during filming. Broadcasting of the new episodes is expected to begin in Autumn 2017.
