Fast-track modular room system for ‘efficient hospital workplaces’
Getinge describes its ‘new and extended’ modular room system, Getinge IN2, as ‘an intelligent solution for creating interconnected, sustainable, and efficient workplaces in hospital departments around the world’.
“Getinge IN2, the successor to our Variop and Variward systems, is designed intuitively to evolve with cutting-edge technologies in operating theatres, intensive care units and Central Sterile Supply Departments (CSSDs),” said Philippe Rocher, President at Getinge South Asia Pacific. “It complements nicely our existing range of equipment to provide complete, integrated turnkey solutions.” He continued: ““Projects using prefabricated Getinge IN2 elements can be completed 40 per cent faster than projects using conventional construction materials.
The solution consists of a substructure, wall and ceiling elements, doors, and built-in elements. These are sealed down to the substructure to make disinfection easier, which helps prevent cross-contamination and healthcare-acquired infections. The modular components are designed to be assembled and disassembled without special tools. A wide range of options and interchangeable elements are available ‘to easily build or remodel hospital departments based on specific needs.
“The modern design allows for elements to be reused and repurposed, reducing carbon footprint and maximizing the return on investment,” Philippe Rocher explained. “In addition to stainless steel and glass, we have added new alternative surface materials, such as high pressure laminate (HPL) and solid surface. We have also incorporated appealing design elements to create a more pleasant hospital environment. We are confident that Getinge IN2 will be the key to building the ideal healthcare environment of tomorrow.”
