Medivac – Infectious Diseases
Since the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in 2013, there is a need for products to fight this health threat. Infectious disease crises ask for medical solutions that can be rapidly deployed and that are of high quality to control the virus and prevent cross-infection. Hospitainer has designed a mobile laboratory in a container to perform viral disease tests in affected areas. Hospitainer believes it can contribute with its medical solutions to combat infectious diseases like Ebola, Zika and Corona.
Hospitainer proposes container solutions over tented solutions to control infectious diseases since containers provide better climate control with AC/heating and insulation, better protection of the staff because of pressurization systems, HEPA filtering and (eye) shower, better and safer work environment for staff and containers are usable under all climatological circumstances. The units have medical floors and walls for easy cleaning with chlorine and all air input and output is filtered.
Isolation is very important in controlling infectious diseases. In the Medivac container, two patients can be isolated. The unit is designed for areas where cross-infection should be avoided at all costs (for example in hard to reach areas). The patients can be isolated in the Medivac before transport to a specialised hospital is arranged. Since the Medivac for infectious diseases consists of a 20ft transporting container, infected people can get evacuated in the Medivac as well.
