Advanced Medical Cart Battery
Any medical facility knows the importance of having access to various technologies and the ability to move them where needed. Medical carts are the backbone of clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, and many more facilities, but they can be surprisingly cumbersome if not well-designed.
Medical cart rechargeable batteries often have significant weaknesses. Some aren’t strong enough to last a full shift, meaning that nurses and other staff are forced to interrupt their work to keep their cart’s equipment running. Others may last an entire shift, but if a battery change is needed during the next shift, the cart can’t receive a new battery without interruption to power.
The resulting shutdown of computers and other systems can interfere with patient care at critical moments. When it comes to battery powered medical equipment, there’s no room for error, and you need to invest in the best battery life possible. Your patients deserve high performance equipment that works to support them uninterrupted.
Advanced medical cart rechargeable batteries also must be user-friendly. Heavy replacement batteries or complicated connection systems are a burden to nurses and doctors. Users with small hands may struggle with bulky batteries, and even stronger users might be unable to troubleshoot battery problems.
Like other medical devices, carts need the most reliable source of power possible, but having to plug into a wall makes movement more difficult for nurses and technicians. Fortunately, lithium batteries have improved dramatically in recent years, thanks to improvements in how they are manufactured.
In decades past, medical carts used lead-acid batteries that usually had just a few hours of battery life. Some carts were technically considered mobile because they had wheels, but had to be plugged into a wall in order for the electronics to work.
Now, lithium battery systems can last for a full shift, even with frequent use in point of care systems. Various medical equipment have become more reliable thanks to these improved power sources, and allow your staff to focus less on the equipment and more on each patient’s needs.
Older batteries that used to last several hours tend to lose their ability to hold a charge over time. If your older carts no longer work well for your staff, it’s probably time to replace the batteries. The electronics themselves may work just fine, though, which means that a retrofit is more appropriate than a full replacement.
Battery Powered Medical Carts With Better Technology
Developing a truly user-friendly and high-quality advanced medical cart battery hasn’t been a priority for some developers, but we’ve made it happen. Our patented Flexible Mobile Cart Power Technology System delivers the power you need to adapt to any situation.
It can be retrofitted to existing carts, making it an economical option for facilities that have recently updated their carts. The batteries last for years without losing charging power, so they’re an efficient investment that will save your facility money and time.
We also have Hot Swap medical cart battery systems. These specialized systems allow you to change out batteries without interrupting power to onboard computers and other equipment. The ability to make this switch without shutting down systems or finding a wall outlet makes it much easier for nurses and other staff to do their jobs uninterrupted.
