Medical Carts for Laptops
Medical carts for laptops provide an easy connectable option for portable computers. In today’s fast-paced medical environment, this offers a multitude of benefits for medical staff.
Having a laptop on a medical workstation provides staff with easy access to electronic patient files and hospital systems without a desktop computer’s bulkiness. A laptop-equipped medical cart saves having a fixed computer attached to the cart. The laptop can be removed for use away from the workstation, offering a flexible work environment.
Scott-Clark Medical specializes in creating custom medical carts to meet the specific requirements of your facility. Our medical computing carts incorporate intelligent features and an ergonomic design to improve the efficiency of your facility.
What Features to Expect from a Scott-Clark Medical Mobile Computing Cart
Rechargeable power supply
For medical carts with laptop fittings, a battery power supply option is provided to increase the laptop’s operating hours. The battery power supply is secure, long-lasting, and easily monitored.
Battery-powered carts have long-lasting lithium batteries that utilize our patented Flexible Mobile Cart Power Technology (FMCPT). These cells are hot-swappable, or chargeable on the cart. Each battery’s charging time is only 2.5 hours, and they provide up to 10 hours of power, meaning staff can use the cart continuously throughout their shift.
Our standard laptop fittings provide flexibility in design, which can suit a wide range of laptops. Specific custom design options can be provided for particular laptop sizes. Designs for laptop fittings need to ensure security and stability for the sensitive and expensive computer equipment.
Laptop fittings require maximum stability under movement, while still allowing easy removal. Security can be a problem in inner-city medical facilities, and medical carts for laptops feature lockable connections.
Strong, flexible design
Medical carts are some of the most frequently used items in a hospital or clinic. Impacts and heavy loads damage low-quality carts compromising their structural integrity. At Scott-Clark Medical, we design our carts to last.
We construct the cart frame from tough stainless steel, covered in a protective powder-coating to prevent corrosion and allow for easier cart sanitation. The work surface is made from scratch-free, high-density plastic that features molded ergonomic handles at the front and rear of the cart for easy transport.
The frame is height adjustable using our high-powered hydraulic system. Depending on the frame specifications, the lift can support up to 44 lbs. We can also build the structure with a lift powered by an electric motor with a weight capacity of 157 lbs.
Stable, compact wheelbase
Mobility is a critical feature for medical carts. Staff need to transport carts from room to room with ease and without running into obstacles. Scott-Clark Medical carts for laptops come with a compact 19” W x 20” D wheelbase that maneuvers quickly down narrow corridors and around hospital beds. The slim profile also makes it easy to store when not in use.
Our carts are designed with smooth-rolling, multidirectional casters that are conductive to send accumulated static electricity back into the floor. The conductivity eliminates the risk of electrical overload that can damage sensitive medical equipment and computers.
Mobile medical carts for laptops can improve staff efficiency by limiting the number of trips they make to central locations for supplies, medications, and data entry. To ensure that medications are stored safely to avoid theft, tampering, and dosage errors, we can equip our laptop carts with locking drawers.
We offer traditional lock and key varieties, as well as biometric and keycard activated locks. The locks can integrate with the laptop’s software to monitor and track medications, and onboard printers can create a paper trail useful during an audit or protect staff.
Scott-Clark Medical standard carts are entirely customizable to meet the needs of your facility and staff. Laptop trays come pre-installed and allow you to detach your computer as needed easily, or stow underneath the tray to create more workspace. A keyboard tray is located beneath the worktop to house an external keyboard.
We offer a range of additional attachments, including barcode scanners, printers for wristbands, sharps and biohazard waste disposal, and general trash containers. We can also equip your cart to fit vitals monitoring devices and a computer monitor.
Unlike wall mounts that offer a limited range of use, onboard computer monitor mounts can transform your laptop cart into a complete computing workstation. Our mounting systems come in single and dual varieties and allow you to angle the screen on both lateral and vertical axes.
What are the Benefits of a Scott-Clark Medical Laptop Cart?
Provide quality patient interactions
Research supports doctor-patient interaction as one of the critical indicators of a positive health outcome. A mobile laptop cart facilitates high-quality interactions between staff and patients by keeping patients informed and allowing collaborative treatment.
Adjusting the work surface’s height and angle enables patients to view their records and test results on the screen in real-time. An added printer lets staff provide hard copies of information to patients for more informed medical decisions.
Increase patient confidentiality
As more medical settings transfer to electronic record-keeping, patient confidentiality is more important than ever. A laptop cart enables staff to enter and retrieve patient data at the point of care, and password encryption ensures that all patient health information is kept private.
Many medical errors occur at the point of care when staff fails to read colleague handwriting correctly or medication dosage and times are recorded incorrectly. Having mobile access to electronic health records on a laptop cart means the team can instantly take the cart from room to room and access vital data instantly to eliminate delays and errors.
Offer a versatile storage solution
The bespoke nature of Scott-Clark laptop medical carts means they can be used for various applications. From point of care units to medication carts, we can design a portable unit for your facility.
But our carts aren’t limited to the medical sector. The compact design and height adjustment features make our laptop carts a valuable addition to office space as a combination sit-stand desk. They can also be used in dental practices to keep tools and supplies close at hand, in the warehouse or distribution center when tracking inventory on the floor, or at home to store cleaning and household items.
