Product description and innovation synopsis:
The Optimus ISE is the first redesign from the ground-up of the operating room since World War II. It is the first to deploy well established design principles from other industries (manufacturing, aviation, automobile industry, theatrical industry) to the operating room space: safety-by-design, sterility-by-design, efficiency-by-design, and ergonomics that guarantee a working environment that inspires a sense of calm and confidence, not only for the patient, but for the surgical staff.
What sets this product apart from others available in the industry?
The Optimus ISE approach significantly differentiates from current offerings in the market, offering a complete healthcare facilities solution. It is an integrated system that can interface with any medical device, making it a vendor-agnostic solution. It provides significant look and feel differentiation, with consistent and intuitive user interface. The combination of highly innovative components could also be used independently. Among other features are the first sterilizable operating room in the world and the most comprehensive and intuitive audiovisual and communications platform in the industry
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
The first sterlizable operating room can lead to the elimination of the surgical environment as a source of surgical site infection. The exclusion of individual risk events is buil directly into the design. The solution provides for improved time-to-find (RFID pass through cabinets and logistics core), improved turn over time (Floor Genie), reduced “on hold” times in the recovery rooms, decreased time-to-wake, and consistent and smoother workflow via a systems approach to the entire operating room sector.
