The GZS Hospital Bed Mover




The GZS Electric Bed Mover represents the fourth generation hospital mover developed by Tricycle, in Partnership with Electrodrive.

In hospitals today, beds laden with injured or sick patients are required to be moved regularly through crowded hospital environments. Beds can weigh up to 600kg and are frequently moved by a single operator often causing strain to the user, and discomfort to the patient.


Customer and user research uncovered the opportunity to develop a bed mover that could reduce the strain to the operators revolutionizing the way in which patients and beds are moved through a high traffic, often critical environment.



Through the development of a unique product architecture and User Interface the GZS provides safe and agile movement of large cumbersome hospital beds.

The architecture is designed with a bio-directional power steering and movement system. This system provides great manoeuvrability of the beds around corners, as it turns the hospital beds about the mid-point of the bed.

The user interface of the product is developed for ease of adoption and control by trained and first time users.

It includes a silent and universal bed connection system to minimize the stress and discomfort to patients.

Light enough to install everyday Strong enough to prevent vandalism
Patented cabin protection system by Vandalcover

Protecting equipment

Vandalcover saw an opportunity in the market for improved cabin protection on earth moving equipment. The existing steel or aluminum products can result in operator back strains or machine damage during fitment due to their excessive weight.

The answer was found in the use of lightweight, high strength polymer covers. Tricycle assisted Vandalcover to create and optimise a patented new product range of moulded polymer covers. The outcome for Vandalcover has been a successful product launch and strong demand.

Ultra low energy lighting and iF Award Winner Developing a low energy lighting system was attractive to architects.

Delivering boutique coffee to office America
A unique product system Including pod, UI and machine

Delivering boutique coffee


Tricycle worked with a new entrant into the US market, to develop a system that could expand their business offering to small and boutique coffee roasters. The machine worked with their unique capsule technology offer the boutique coffee roaster a clean coffee pod solution that was attractive to the office market. For a great customer experience this machine needed to provide an education on the coffee blend and coaching how to make the perfect coffee.



UI concepts were explored that delivered alternate ways to communicate the origins and value of the coffee and methods of brewing. As the machines were used in high traffic areas with both experienced and first time users, iconography played a vital role in ensuring users could connect with the product and know how to use it first time.



The mess a coffee machine causes in the office environment was considered a major pain point that the client wished to address. The machine styling is to communicate a clean premium aesthetic that communicated both the cleanliness of the process and the premium nature of boutique espresso coffee.

News & Events – Memobottle
Raising $260K from Kickstarter and being provided in the Oscars gift bags

News and Events - Memobottle




Tricycle is extremely proud of its staff member Jesse Leeworthy for developing and launching the memobottle. The memobottle has been recognized by it’s peers as a game changing product. It has reached over $260K of funding on Kickstarter, has been featured within the Oscars and Grammy's gift bags, and is now retailing through Urban Outfitters in the EU and UK.


Resembling the shape of a piece of paper, the memobottle is a slimline, premium designed, reusable water bottle which suitably slides into your favorite carry bag alongside your computer, books and valuables. The memobottle brings leak-proof hydration to a new level of style and efficiency.


Single use bottle consumption has gone bananas in recent years, with 1,500 plastic bottles being used and discarded every SECOND in the US. This has a damaging effect on both the environment, and our hip pockets. Bottled water is about 1,400 times more expensive than tap water and often less regulated.

It’s a common belief that plastic is The Devil. However, due to the monstrous embodied energy in Aluminium and Stainless Steel products, (considering raw material to product) reusable plastic bottles are actually 80% more environmentally friendly than their counterparts.


The memobottle is available for purchase at www.memobottle.com
