Getinge recently launched in 2022, the new and extended modular room system Getinge IN2 – an intelligent solution for creating interconnected, sustainable and efficient workplaces in hospital departments around the world.
“Getinge IN2, the successor to our Variop and Variward systems, is designed intuitively to evolve with cutting-edge technologies in the Operating Room (OR), Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Central Sterile Supply Departments (CSSD). It complements nicely our existing range of equipment to provide complete, integrated turnkey solutions,” says Philippe Rocher, President at Getinge South Asia Pacific. Apart from creating a functional and safe work environment, the new modular room system is a game changer also in other aspects:
“Projects using prefabricated Getinge IN2 elements can be completed 40 percent faster than projects using conventional construction materials. This keeps timelines on track, on budget, with less downtime, noise, dust and disruption,” Philippe explains.
The solution consists of a substructure, wall and ceiling elements, doors and built-in elements. These are sealed down to the substructure to make disinfection easier; which helps prevent cross-contamination and health care acquired infections (HCAI).
The modular components are designed to be assembled and disassembled without special tools. A wide range of options and interchangeable elements are available to easily build or remodel hospital departments based on specific needs.
“The modern design allows for elements to be reused and repurposed, reducing carbon footprint and maximizing the return on investment,” says Philippe. “In addition to stainless steel and glass, we have added new alternative surface materials, such as high pressure laminate (HPL) and solid surface.”
He continues “We have also incorporated appealing design elements to create a more pleasant hospital environment that can ease stress and uplift moods, thus improving efficiency. In short, we are confident that Getinge IN2 will be the key to building the ideal health care environment of tomorrow.”
