Written by on July 2, 2021 in Business with 0 Comments

Medical desertification, isolation, or even the aging of the population induce many public health problems and pose difficulties in accessing healthcare. Mobile medical units make it possible to deport hospital examinations and tele-expertise resources as close as possible to the patient.

Mobile medical units have acquired a strong expertise in this field. Indeed, Mobile medical units have been implementing mobile, flexible telemedicine solutions for many years, particularly suited to monitoring patients at home or on the move. Mobile medical units have thus participated in numerous projects and several operational deployments, for example, a traveling network for screening for diabetes complications that has been operational for several years or even the development and delivery of a mobile medical unit for Réunion. Mobile medical units thus put its know-how and expertise at the service of a greater number of people.

Custom-Made Medical Units

These mobile units are specially designed for the institution that will be using the solution. The layout of these units is completely modular and they are equipped with all the biomedical equipment necessary for patient monitoring. These units can thus be suitable for multiple medical needs and specialties.

For example, in the case of a truck intended for monitoring complications of diabetes, it will be equipped, among other things, with a risograph, a body mass analyzer, a podo barometry platform, a diagnostic device, vascular or biological analyzers. For the comfort of patients and caregivers, it is also equipped with a reception, a consultation cabin, a water point, and reversible air conditioning allowing efficient use and comfort and a welcome in the best conditions.

Efficient Operation

In addition, for the simplest possible operation, it was chosen to opt for a light vehicle type truck template. This thus allows an inexpensive charge for the institution. Its size also allows it to be driven by the nurse himself, thus not requiring the intervention of a third person.

The nurse can then travel the roads to meet the patients. The truck is installed in the villages, and patients, informed of its arrival by town halls, pharmacists, or attending doctors, can come and consult. The health professional carries out a battery of examinations on-site.

Easy Data Transfer

The data collected is transferred for interpretation to specialists in a referral expert center. They can be transmitted securely by traditional 4G or WIFI networks but also through the use of an additional satellite antenna.

Remotely, the expert analyzes the data. Its conclusions and the action to be taken are then sent to the attending physician who can then adapt the treatment.

A Solution That Improves Medical Follow-Up: A Real Asset In The Patient's Care Path

By being integrated into the patient's care path, these mobile medical units make it possible to fight effectively against medical desertification. They also promote home care. They encourage consultation, reduce patient care times and improve their comfort by reducing their trips. By preventing the complications of certain pathologies and improving medical monitoring, mobile units finally allow real savings to be made.

These mobile units can be used to provide ad hoc support to existing hospitals to provide them with the specialized help they need on a transitional basis.

These units can be equipped with generators and Internet access to be able to work independently or in coordination with their reference center, which makes it possible to provide the necessary health care to the population or to strengthen it thanks to E-systems. Health which, is made up of various medical and health products and services, such as telemedicine, represents a real “radical transformation of medical and health services”.

This Makes It Possible To Promote Or Achieve:

  • Reduction of specific pathologies utilizing specialized units.
  • Preventive medicine campaigns.
  • Vaccination campaigns.
  • Medico-health training cycles.
  • Control and sampling of epidemics.
  • The mobile unit makes it possible to bring medicine to the population quickly and efficiently.
