Ceiling supply units designed to enhance workflow efficiency
Dräger says it new ceiling supply units, Ambia and Ponta, available in a variety of colours, and featuring ‘user-friendly ergonomics’, are designed to make workflows in the operating theatre, neonatology, or intensive care unit more efficient.
The company said: “Equally, with more connection options for medical devices and accessories at all four corners of the column, and greater capacity for electrical and gas outlets that can be freely positioned, the new Ambia and Ponta ceiling supply units allow individual configuration in intensive care units, or in the operating theatre, for even more efficient care. With their coordinated colour concepts and décor variants, Ambia and Ponta offer easy integration into any room, while a variety of colour and wood décors are available for the drawers to create an attractive overall ambience. Lighting options feature warm, glare-free light, using the RGB1 colour model. The new ceiling supply units thus contribute to a calming therapeutic atmosphere.”
To allow ‘more intuitive positioning’ of the ceiling supply units, the handles have touch-sensitive sensors that automatically release the brakes. The handle positions can be adapted to suit individual work processes, and the handles can be retrofitted. In addition, rounded profiles and smooth disinfection-resistant materials help make the Ponta and Ambia units quick and easy to clean and disinfect, while ‘sophisticated’ cable management in the shafts reduces the accumulation of dirt. Dräger added: “A touchless working environment, including ceiling and floor lights, also contributes toward preventing infection.”
