Miniaturization in Surgical Medical Devices Drives Medical Cart Revolution

The trend toward integrating wireless technology into surgical medical devices is making tools and instruments smarter, more portable, and less expensive. Accordingly, mobile applications are quickly changing how medical personnel and patients use surgical medical devices.

Surgical centers are becoming less cluttered and more organized, clinician workflows are improving, and each surgical device can benefit more patients because clinicians can move equipment quickly.

Medical device carts have become smaller, integrate cords better, are more stable moving over carpets, and provide improved security for surgical medical devices.

How Does Tryten Help Mobilize Medical Devices?

Surgical Room Carts

Even though microchips and Wi-Fi have rendered many medical devices mobile, they still haven’t attained the advanced state pictured in sci-fi shows. 

The smart, portable medical devices in use today often require medical personnel to use apps running on a smartphone or tablet to get the most out of the device. The person using the device then needs three hands: one for the device, one for the patient, and one for the smartphone or tablet displaying results.

Clinicians need screens that are held steady in the optimal viewing position. The screen needs to be highly mobile so it can move with operators as they shift positions around the patient or move from patient to patient. 

Using a Tryten cart solves this issue by holding screens and devices securely while keeping them highly mobile. The risks of dropping, damaging, or losing an expensive piece of equipment are mitigated. The operator can focus on what matters most — the patient’s issue.

A Tryten medical device cart is a stand on wheels. It holds and carries medical devices, tablet computers, and other peripherals securely, rendering them highly mobile and flexible. Tryten carts can use remote tracking and management and provide space for long-lasting batteries. 

Tryten is attending the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress, or trade show, at Booth #1443. Tim Kenney, Tryten’s Director of Corporate Accounts, will preside over discussions about the latest surgical innovation and demonstrate how medical devices are easily deployed and protected on a Tryten cart.

How Do Tryten Carts Help Surgical Centers?

Mobile medical carts enable clinicians to diagnose, treat and document patients at the point of care. These carts reduce fatigue and improve workflow for doctors and nurses, playing critical roles in transporting vital equipment and dispensing medication while eliminating unnecessary movement and increasing patient time.

Surgical medical carts provide safe, secure mounting and power for medical devices, monitors, printers, and keyboards that can travel room-to-room, floor-to-floor, or even out into the parking lot to set up temporary facilities.

Secure Power Source Keeps Clinicians Working

Medical carts can provide a safe, secure source of uninterrupted power by having multiple mounts available for long-life batteries that users can hot-swap without having to restart computers or medical devices.

Sleek Form Reduces Clutter

Since miniaturization has effectively reduced medical device size, surgical room carts no longer need to be big, bulky, or stationary stands. Surgical rooms benefit from more space available and ease in moving equipment to the most favorable location when required.

Easily Cleaned Surfaces Eliminate Infection Sources

Placing cables inside ergonomically designed carts enables smooth, clutter-free surfaces, making frequent cleaning effective and easy. Using medical-grade components helps ensure that bacteria have nowhere to hide. 

Adjustability Improves User Experience

Height-adjustable, articulating arms enable clinicians to position tablets and peripherals where they’re the most convenient to use. Workflows improve, user fatigue reduces, and patient satisfaction increases.

Modular Designs Increase Functionality

Need a tray for a keyboard or mouse? A locking lid for a supply caddy? A lockable tablet holder? How about a multi-purpose equipment holder that’s the perfect resting place for an ultrasound transducer and a gel bottle? Quickly add or remove any of the 40+ medical cart accessories.

Stability Improves Safety

Solid bases and locking, whisper-quiet wheels that glide over any surface, including carpets, make medical carts tip resistant to meet IEC 60601 standards.

Custom Solutions

Tryten can create any custom cart solution a surgical center requires to support medical applications as diverse as telemedicine, VRI, medical devices, and audiovisual needs.

How Do Tryten Carts Help Surgical Device Manufacturers?

End users need a functional tool that pairs with medical devices to securely hold the instruments, tablets or PCs, and accessories. Clinicians can focus on using the device at hand instead of trying to juggle too many tools with too few hands.

Manufacturers of surgical devices benefit from Tryten standard and custom carts by offering their customers a complete solution. 

Tryten’s OEM program works with well-known medical device producers like Phillips, Butterfly, and Clarius to create custom medical device carts that enhance functionality and security for various medical devices.

Manufacturers needing custom solutions can create them with Tryten experts and computer-assisted drawing to design the solution most beneficial to end users.

Patients and clinicians feel more comfortable seeing name-brand equipment they can trust. Carts carrying brand colors and logos grow brand awareness and recognition.

Types of Tryten Medical Carts

Medical carts continue to evolve, responding to technological changes that bring new treatment methods. Advances offer benefits in diverse locations impacting virtual care, patient experience, medical device use, transport, and storage.

Tryten currently makes two general types of medical carts, all of which support OEM customizations and the use of the 40+ accessories that enable nearly all uses.

Type S supports tablets and medical devices. It comes in four models:

  • The S1 features an articulating arm for optimum flexibility and versatility at the point of care.
  • S2 is Tryten’s smallest and simplest cart for tablets and medical devices. It assembles in minutes and supports many accessories.
  • S3 is a robust solution for mobile workstations. It’s ideal for laptop-based data entry and patient intake featuring height adjustment, hidden cables, and an easy-to-clean work surface.
  • S5 has a taller pole giving more vertical reach for special-use cases. It accommodates all the Tryten accessories that allow end users the freedom to customize their medical device carts.

The X1 model is Tryten’s flagship non-powered cart for mobile workstations and videoconferencing uses. Its heavy-duty design is IEC 60601 compliant and has a wide range of brackets and mounts designed to host nearly any device or peripheral. The X1 makes light work of holding and transporting audiovisual hardware.

Tryten carts host end users’ equipment with ready-made or custom mounts that enable mobility and security for any device or peripheral.

Miniaturizing Surgical Medical Devices Has Changed the Surgical Center Experience 

The medical world enjoys immense benefits from miniaturization and Wi-Fi that impact point-of-care treatment. Doctors and nurses need to expend less effort and take fewer steps while they are enabled to serve more people in more locations. Patients receive better treatment easier. And payers enjoy smaller costs.

Putting a small, smart medical device on a lightweight and portable cart enhances and maintains the device’s power without the risk of dropping or losing it. Pairing a portable surgical room device with a sleek, highly mobile Tryten cart makes for secure, easy deployment. Contact Tryten now or stop by Booth #1443 at the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress trade show, where Tim Kenney, Tryten’s Director of Corporate Accounts, will be presiding over demonstrations and discussions.
