New Diagnostic Positioning Aid, Patient Table Pad and Mattress Ranges Released
Imaging Solutions Pty Ltd, Australia and New Zealand’s leading supplier of imaging equipment and accessories, has announced its decision to commence manufacturing a full range of diagnostic positioning aids, patient table pads and mattresses. The new range will be manufactured in Australia at the company’s Meadowbrook production plant and will leverage the advanced skills and core competencies of its existing innovative and progressively growing textile industry sewers, designers, welding technicians and pattern developers.
The recent move to the newly expanded premises has been accompanied by the introduction of several new technology platforms which offer enhanced capabilities. These include on-site custom printing, expanded foam and cover material fabric options, seamless high-frequency welding and high-volume CAD cutting capabilities.
Glenn Honey, CEO and managing director said, “Combining the skill sets, industry experience and competencies already embedded in our company’s work force and culture, along with these advanced technologies, presents the company with exceptional innovation and development opportunities. We expect to achieve strong growth through further diversifying our product range in terms of both its scope and scale, effectively introducing a vastly enhanced capacity to access and increase our market range and reach”.
The introduction of welding technology is expected to play a key role and drive in the company’s product portfolio expansion. The company plans to extensively integrate combinations of all its newly acquired manufacturing technology across its production activities.
Production manager Brett Barton said “An example of the benefits arising from the introduction of our new plant-wide technology integration program has become most evident in the post COVID environment. These design and production capabilities are invaluable and help in the efforts to minimise cross contamination between patients and minimise the potential for infection. The use of HF welding in place of conventional stitching provides for a liquid tight seal and significantly reduces the opportunity for bacteria, pathogens, or contamination to occur.”
A spokesperson for Imaging Solutions said “While the product development focus has been primarily devoted to introducing and enhancing infection control capabilities of this new range, we have taken this opportunity to also address and enhance patient comfort and durability features offered by our products. Our parallel product development roadmap has seen the development for advanced technology-based table pad and mattress foam combinations which address challenges like vapour permeability, multi-directional elasticity, liquid resistance, radiolucent capacity, and latex-free material construction while at the same time optimising infection control capabilities.”
The new range of products are expected to be of interest to hospitals, medical centres, nursing and aged care facilities, OEMs who use table pads for various diagnostic equipment, childcare centres and hostels, and large-scale staging locations which are involved in high turnover accommodation.
