Now available in the U.S. - Getinge’s new ceiling supply unit Maquet Moduevo Bridge supports architectural constraints and healing environments
Today, Getinge launches Maquet Moduevo Bridge, its latest cost-effective and space-saving ceiling supply unit. Maquet Moduevo Bridge is a horizontal solution designed to accommodate architectural constraints, enhance interactions between patient and medical staff and foster a healing environment in intensive care units, recovery and emergency departments.
Getinge’s Maquet Moduevo ceiling supply units range ensures vital utilities and equipment are easy to implement and use, and enables better organization of resources. The aim is to help hospital staff to increase productivity and consequently decrease costs. The newest model launching today, Maquet Moduevo Bridge, is designed to enhance provider-patient interactions at all acuity levels by keeping everything nearby. It can be installed in intensive care and high-dependency care units, recovery and emergency departments.
“In today’s critical care market, flexibility, reliability and clinical ease of use is more important than ever. New construction and renovations demand that companies think about the patient, clinicians, family and equipment and the spatial challenges to support all four. Maquet Moduevo Bridge brings the perfect solution to enhance provider-patient interactions at all acuity levels by providing close and immediate access to the head of the bed and the patient’s airway as well as the equipment and utilities. Ceiling heights and small rooms are no longer a concern with the Bridge as the flexibility of the design accommodates the most challenging of room sizes.” says Eric Honroth,President, North America. It is also suitable for rooms without windows since a newly developed Somnus light provide innovative daylight simulations. “The Somnus light starts at 7 AM with bluish tones to simulate the morning light and ends at 9 PM with reddish tones to represent evening light,” tells Stephane Tabillon, Product Manager at Getinge.Up to six colors of ambient lighting can integrate into Maquet Moduevo Bridge, which creates a peaceful and healing environment for patients, families and medical staff. It also facilitates medical examination and small surgical procedures since an optional surgical lights adapter allows for Getinge’s Maquet Lucea or Maquet Volista Access to be connected.
“This solution also gives great access to caring for the patient since the medical staff will have immediate and unrestricted access to the head of the bed where they will be able to perform intervention such as intubation, suction or vascular procedures.”
The R&D team at Getinge have also aimed at minimizing noise disturbances.
“Maquet Moduevo Bridge comes with electromagnetic quiet brakes that won’t disturb the patient,” explains Stephane. “And when the patient admission is high, the unit can serve two beds instead of just one to enable more flexibility for the medical staff.”
