Mobility In A Mobile Hospital Environment
By Sarah Leitz | Published Aug 24, 2018 | 7 MIN READ
Caregivers need to get from point A to point B quickly and easily. Clinicians are likely to walk double the distance in a shift compared to what an average person walks in an entire day! Walking up to five miles a shift wears on them. Heavy equipment and hard-to-control computer carts just add to their fatigue. We’re living in a mobile world where it’s important to understand just how mobile your computer carts on wheels are! Luckily, Altus has the answer.
All of Altus’ mobile technology workstations are designed with mobility in mind. Each cart delivers one of the lightest weight compact computer workstations on the market - easily delivering technology where and when it’s needed. Ease of mobility and intuitive adjustments are crucial to a clinicians' comfort and productivity in the fast-paced healthcare environment.
Altus laptop carts are equipped with a sleek, forward-facing handle* and highly mobile casters for an easy and effortless push/pull experience.
Altus offers the best casters for your mobility needs. Our 100mm Rollerblade-style casters offers both the aesthetics and maneuverability that is synonymous with Altus. For a “covered” option, the Shepherd caster fits the bill. This 100mm option offers a sleek design, can be easily cleaned and blocks those unwanted dust bunnies. If you are looking for a floor-to-floor solution that responds well to threshold’s of
elevators, then the 100mm Tente dual-wheel caster is the perfect choice.
Interaction with the patient is an important component of patient satisfaction. Having mobile workstations to provide face-to-face interaction at eye-level improves not only the patient's perception of the visit but can also aid in creating a stress-free environment.
Space is incredibly valuable in healthcare environments. Multiple clinicians' are sometimes required in a room, large crowds of family and friends surrounding a patient, or numerous types of equipment can all lead to tight quarters. Our compact footprint is so important for both functionality and satisfaction.
If you have a specific application in mind, Altus has a solution for you!
