In the fast-paced and highly demanding field of medicine, efficiency is a factor that separates elite healthcare facilities from ordinary ones. One of the most impactful productivity tools at a healthcare provider’s disposal is the mobile workstation cart. Scott-Clark Medical’s customizable mobile powered workstation carts are an ideal productivity solution for any healthcare facility.
What Is a Mobile Powered Workstation Cart?
A mobile-powered workstation cart consists of two components: the workstation cart and the mobile power system.
Mobile Workstation Carts
Workstation carts come in a variety of configurations depending on their intended use.
The point of care cart is the most common type of mobile workstation cart. Point of care carts feature easily-adjustable work surfaces as well as adjustable monitors.
Our mobile powered carts are manufactured to have a small physical footprint to facilitate easy movement and maneuvering. They are designed to be ergonomic, reduce strain on healthcare providers, and come complete with an array of customizable accessories to meet the needs of each practice.
There are several other types of mobile workstation carts for more specialized purposes. Medical supply carts, for instance, are mobile computer workstations that feature fully-customizable medicine drawers. They can be customized for various specializations, from IV administration to ICU crash carts. The drawers can feature electronic or mechanical locks to secure the medicine.
Our carts can be configured to meet the needs of any healthcare practice; no matter what you require from your mobile workstation, our carts can be customized for the job.
Mobile Cart Power Options
A selection of cutting-edge power packages can power mobile workstation carts. Many older mobile workstations provided challenges to healthcare providers, particularly with charging and battery levels.
Scott-Clark Medical’s Flexible Mobile Cart Power Technology offers a solution to the issues posed by earlier workstation models. The battery pack can last for 8-12 hours on a single charge, reducing the need for maintenance to the cart during a shift.
The visual light indicator discreetly notifies providers in real-time when the battery is nearing the end of its charge, so providers will not be caught off-guard by a dead battery. The lightweight battery is also easy to remove and replace, providing a rechargeable power solution without requiring specialized training.
Another option is our hot swap battery systems. Hot swap batteries allow healthcare providers to replace a dead battery pack without powering down the system, preventing service interruptions. These swappable lithium battery packs are relied upon by an ever-increasing number of healthcare facilities, particularly for instruments of high importance, such as mobile workstation carts.
Our most advanced power supply option is our patented FMCPT Power System. This system is designed to meet healthcare facilities’ varying needs by offering AC and DC power options and 680 watt-hours of use between battery charges. Our system features smart battery capabilities, which intelligently select which battery should be used and which should be charged.
While power supply demands vary across facilities, you can rest assured that Scott-Clark Medical offers the perfect energy system for your needs.

How Do Mobile Powered Workstation Carts Increase Productivity?
Mobile powered workstation carts are a vital part of any medical practice and can provide productivity gains in various ways.
Our mobile powered workstation carts are fully customizable, so you can have all the peripherals needed to effectively provide healthcare services in one convenient location. By having all the necessary materials in one place, providers save time and energy that would have otherwise been spent traveling to retrieve the needed devices.
By eliminating these trips, healthcare facilities can increase productivity and standards of care.
Durable, Easy-to-Clean Materials
Scott-Clark Medical’s mobile workstation carts are manufactured with highly durable and easy-to-clean materials. This saves providers time in a few ways.
The highly durable materials resist breakage and malfunction much better when compared to other, less-durable materials.
Since the cart surfaces are designed to be simple to clean, providers spend less time cleaning their carts and more time treating patients.
Safe, Easy Maneuvering
Our carts are designed to be easy to maneuver, even in tight and hard-to-traverse spaces. This benefit is incredibly impactful in a medical setting. By reducing the cart’s footprint, providers can ensure that they have access to all of the features of the mobile workstation anywhere in the facility.
Additionally, by traversing spaces that would otherwise be impossible with larger workstation carts, providers can take the most direct route from place to place and save valuable time.
Computer and Tech Integration
One of the most powerful ways our workstation carts can improve healthcare facility productivity is with their integrated technologies. With an easily-accessible computer system, providers can efficiently complete tasks and save time.
Customizable tech options can save providers time and effort by consolidating every necessary piece of equipment in one convenient cart.
The ergonomic design of our mobile workstation carts reduces strain on healthcare providers. This allows providers to maintain their energy levels for longer, providing efficient care for the entire duration of their shift.
