Features

Lightweight, portable, and built to last, the Powdercrush™ is an ideal product for long-term care, pharmacies, hospitals and correctional facilities. Powdercrush™ saves time, eliminates the problem of cross contamination and crushes meds to a super-fine powder.

  • Helps reduce the chance of repetitive strain injuries for nurses.
  • Used with disposable medication crushing bags available at PowderCrush.
  • Powered by a lithium Polymer rechargeable battery pack 25.9 volt 1500 mAh with a power meter located on the top of the unit.
  • A fully charged PowderCrush should crush for days, and you only need to charge when required.
  • Built-in “smart” charger will analyze the condition of the battery and charge accordingly with no overheating or overcharge. It will not run while the charger is connected.
  • Power meter LEDs light up when button is pressed. The in-use LED flashes green when the unit is in use and indicates the current battery level. The red LED flashes when the unit needs charging (ie. when the battery capacity is at 10% or less). Never run the battery totally empty as there is the possibility of damage to the battery.
  • Charging time is minimum 4 hours for a full charge.

What People Say Submit A Testimonial

As Care Manager it is part of my role to find products that help staff do their job safely and efficiently. We have tried many medication crushers in the past and most have come up short in one way or another. The staff at Glacier View Lodge, (a Complex Care Facility for Seniors) are most impressed and pleased with the Powdercrusher. It is simple to use and reasonably quiet. We have found it even crushes the meds that have been very difficult to crush manually, such as calcium tablets, with the simple press of a button.

  • Nursing Staff

We are a 229 bed skilled nursing facility located in southeastern Wisconsin. My nurses are very impressed with your product. We were searching for a portable device that would be easy to use, yet powerful enough to crush multiple medications. From the minute the product was put into use, the nurses noted less soreness and discomfort that comes from using a manual crushing method. This product is also a time saver during busy med pass times. Thank you for coming up with such a useful tool!
