Portable Workstation on Wheels
A mobile workstation on wheels is a portable computer desk or cart that allows workers to access equipment on the move. This workstation is beneficial in industries where workers need to be constantly mobile, such as healthcare.
Mobile workstations can be equipped with various features, with many mobile workstations offering built-in monitors and printers. A mobile workstation is an excellent way for healthcare workers to increase productivity and improve the patient experience.
Features of Portable Workstations on Wheels
A portable workstation on wheels is a versatile device with various peripheral features. While top mobile workstation manufacturers like Scott-Clark Medical design each workstation to fit the individual needs of the client’s practice, they often share several standard features, including:
A typical portable workstation includes a computer, a monitor, a printer, and a tablet. They also often feature chargers for phones and other devices and ample space to store medication or other medical instruments like disposable tongue depressors, syringes, and PPE.
Some models also include integrated medical devices, such as blood pressure cuffs and thermometers to expedite patient care.
In today’s increasingly digital world, it is essential for healthcare facilities to have a reliable way to connect clinical staff with patients’ medical records. The portable workstation on wheels provides a computer and Wi-Fi service in a mobile unit that can be easily wheeled from room to room. This gives clinicians quick and easy access to medical records, making it easier to provide quality patient care.
The workstation on wheels can also connect clinicians with other staff members and lab technicians, allowing for better communication and coordination of care.
The portable workstation on wheels is a highly mobile device that helps to improve workflow processes in a medical setting. The device’s wheels simplify transportation from one location to another, and the unit can be easily stored when not in use.
The unit can also include an adjustable work surface, an expandable tech tray, an adjustable display monitor, and a platform height adjustment feature, allowing users to customize the workstation to their own needs.
- Integrated Barcode Medical Administration System
The portable workstation cart features a highly customizable and integrated barcode medical administration system (BCMA). This system includes a built-in barcode scanner and label printer, making it quick and easy to create labels for medication. It also features a convenient wristband printer.
- Flexible Power Options
Portable workstations on wheels feature a variety of power options. These power options are customizable to fit the needs of each practice.
Each workstation comes standard with a long-lasting lithium-ion battery, which can be customized to include additional battery systems.
A hot-swap battery pack is a convenient option to power your mobile workstation, particularly if you need to power care carts for extended periods. Our FMCPT LiFePO₄ batteries provide 8-12 hours off a single charge. These batteries can be quickly swapped out when the battery runs low without having to shut down the system.
Each mobile workstation on wheels also features a backup direct power option, allowing practitioners to preserve battery life or maintain function in the case of battery failure.
- Sanitary Features
Mobile workstation carts can be equipped with antimicrobial protection that helps kill bacteria and other harmful microbes. This protection is critical in preventing the transfer of bacteria between providers.
In addition, mobile workstations feature sealed surfaces composed of materials such as HDPE or ADS plastics that can be easily cleaned and disinfected. These features help to ensure that care carts remain clean and safe for use in all areas of a healthcare facility.
Benefits of Using Workstations on Wheels
Workstations on wheels have become increasingly popular in healthcare settings because they offer several benefits to hospital staff compared to traditional stationary workstations or non-powered carts, including increased flexibility, improved efficiency, and enhanced patient care.
- Workflow Improvement
Portable workstations are an efficient way to maximize space and resources in a busy office and can be easily reconfigured to accommodate changes in workflow or new technologies. By centralizing essential equipment, workstations on wheels help streamline clinical workflow processes and reduce the time staff members spend walking between different departments.
Workstations on wheels can be easily moved from one patient room to another, which helps to improve efficiency further.
Mobile workstations are an integral part of a medical facility; they are designed to be durable and withstand the demands of a medical environment.
They are manufactured with top-quality materials, such as heavy-duty casters, making them less prone to deterioration from day-to-day activity and cleaning with harsh chemicals.
Workstations on wheels also feature a wide variety of power options, allowing them to continue operating in various situations and locations. Many mobile workstations also feature interchangeable components, facilitating simple repairs and reducing maintenance costs.
The built-in ergonomic design features of the workstation on wheels help reduce worker fatigue and muscle strain while providing a comfortable and efficient working environment.
The ergonomic workstation on wheels is ideal for workers who need to adjust their working surfaces frequently or want the option of a mobile workstation. The frame is height-adjustable and the monitor screen can be angled towards patients, allowing staff to share information at patients’ bedsides. The carts also come with oversized rounded ergonomic handles on the front and rear of the cart for easier movement.
The 4-point wheelbase offers excellent stability to support heavy equipment and peripherals without tipping. The compact wheelbase design allows the cart to be easily maneuvered in tight spaces, such as between patient beds and down narrow hallways.
- Patient Experience
A workstation on wheels can help improve the patient experience in several ways. By allowing clinicians to move freely around the patient’s room, mobile workstations encourage active patient engagement and reduce the likelihood of missed diagnoses or medical errors.
Also, by freeing up floor space and making it easier for clinicians to move between rooms, workstations on wheels help reduce noise levels and allow for quieter, more pleasant patient interactions. As a result, patients can receive excellent care in a calm and inviting setting.
