Mobile Display Carts and LCD Enclosures
Quest International (Irvine, Calif) introduces mobile display carts and stainless-steel enclosures, which are additions to the companys line of NEC and Totoku medical displays. The mobile display carts allow electronic data to go with a clinician, as opposed to forcing the clinician to go to the data.
According to Quest, displays mounted to mobile carts allow for fewer displays to cover the entire facility, which also can result in a reduction of the overall cost budget. Mobile display carts also facilitate quicker operating room (OR) preparation and expedited turnover. The carts can be configured with such items as multiple displays, a power supply, or wired or wireless computers.
The stainless-steel LCD enclosures encase 30-inch and 40-inch LCDs. The enclosure includes a protective panel over the glass, preventing the ingress of fluidswhich is useful in OR and surgical-suite environments. (800) 231-6777; www.questinc.com.
