Bytec Expands Mobile Medical Cart Portfolio
Redhill, UK, 13 July 2011 – Bytec Medical is significantly expanding its range of ergonomic medical equipment platforms. The new additions to Bytec’s portfolio build on the successful launch of the Smart-CartTM and Medi-StandTM platforms and have been developed in response to customer feedback, and an important tender for UniHA in France.
The new MIT-Cart is a tough mobile medical cart featuring a gas-assisted, height-adjustable work surface and mounting pole with a VESA mount for a display. The 680 mm diameter cast aluminium base provides a stable foundation to withstand the everyday bumps and knocks associated with a busy medical environment. All surfaces are coated with a smooth untextured paint and eliminate grooves where dirt could otherwise collect. All products from Bytec Medical provide ergonomic design for ease of use and class leading infection control.
The new equipment platforms unveiled this year will provide the healthcare industries with greater choice without compromising on quality. The modular construction of the range means Bytec customers can configure the stands with a selection of additional accessories required to suit their particular application.
The MIT-Cart medical cart range is a new addition to Bytec’s existing powered cart range. The MIT-Cart platform is designed for mobile workstation applications, supporting the use of a Panel PC or small form factor PC with the option of mains or DC power. The design is founded on a heavy duty 680 mm aluminium base with smooth rolling castors. The easy-clean construction eliminates dirt traps and is also available with an anti-microbial additive to help fight against the spread of infections.
The standard MIT-Cart is supplied with a monitor mounting pole with a VESA mount for a display and benefits from having a large work surface for use with a keyboard, writing notes or as preparation area for small procedures. Two accessory channels on the front and rear can be used to hold baskets, hooks or rails. Custom accessories and mounts are available subject to arrangement.
The MIT-Cart medical cart range includes a second option, which has the additional mechanical function that the work surface can be height adjusted to suit a seated or standing user. This is achieved by the integration of a locking gas strut which is of the correct strength to suit the displays weight. MIT-Cart is the ideal lightweight solution for mobile IT requirements in all healthcare environments.
The Eco-Stand has been developed as an entry-level product to the medical stand range. Available in a range of build configurations on either a 540 mm or 600 mm cast aluminium base, the Eco-stand delivers an economic solution to accessory handling. Eco-Stand is an ideal complement to Bytec’s family of equipment stands; the 540 mm version is available with a drip pole and easy-clean rubber mouldings. The 600 mm fixed height version has a 2” anodised aluminium pole, capable of supporting lightweight monitor equipment and at the top of this range is a 2” height adjustable version capable of supporting a mounted display with an integral gas assisted lift, making it ideal as an auxiliary display stand or mobile panel PC solution for when no worktop is required.
New plastic accessory adapters are also being introduced for the Eco-Stand, which can be quickly added without the need for disassembly, allowing the stands to be configured as required with baskets, hooks or clamp rails. As with all Bytec products, Eco-Stand is aesthetically pleasing and has been designed with hygiene and infection control in mind.
