Hospital Design

May 25, 2018

Design is increasingly becoming a focal design element for operators of those settings involved in healthcare for people. These are the premises on which the new trolley for the administration of drugs was conceived for the Lanco Company of Boituva, Brazil.

 One of the first aspects was the reduction of volumes typical of hospital trolleys. This allows for greater user-friendliness of the trolley itself in its transfer from one room to another. The handles and their position were studied under the ergonomic profile of trolley movements.

The work counter is extremely easy to clean and is built with an additive that makes it antibacterial. In the lower part a rubbery bumper zone softens the accidental bumps against edges and doors, avoiding damages to the hospital structure and safeguarding the integrity of the trolley itself. Handles and drawer surfaces are made of material that is soft and pleasant to touch.

The innovative design of the Lanco trolley was studied furthermore to use a rotational technology which allows the construction of the frameless trolley, making it easier to produce and assemble at contained costs. The trolley was conceived in a modular manner for greater versatility for many types of use in the various therapeutic wards.

The official presentation of the new trolley at the trade fair was a great success for the public and operators.
