Midmark is helping physicians and caregivers re-think traditional workflow by bringing care directly to the patient and minimizing accessibility issues associated with diverse patient demographics.
Versailles, Ohio (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
Midmark Corporation, a leading medical solutions provider and trusted leader in digital diagnostic devices for ambulatory care, today announced the introduction of its new 625 Barrier-Free® Power Examination Table with IQscale™.
The Midmark 625 now features a fully integrated digital scale, IQscale™, as well as a handheld control that allows physicians and caregivers to send scale data, including body mass index, directly to electronic medical records (EMRs). In Midmark’s recently released 2012 Medical Trends Survey, 63 percent of primary care physicians selected the implementation of EMRs as the most important exam room enhancement to improve patient care.
The Midmark 625 with IQscale™ allows physicians to care for a growing number of patients without worrying about equipment limitations. Midmark’s 625 also offers 18- to 37-inch seat height adjustment, flat seating surface and adjustable arm system to provide easy patient transfer and minimize mobility-related issues in the exam room.
“More and more of today’s patients are facing mobility and accessibility challenges,” said Kurt Forsthoefel, senior marketing manager at Midmark. “Midmark is helping physicians and caregivers re-think traditional workflow by bringing care directly to the patient and minimizing accessibility issues associated with diverse patient demographics.”
Traditionally, power examination tables require 20 to 24 seconds to move patients into proper exam position. The Midmark 625 uses custom designed actuators to reduce positioning time to only 14 seconds, minimizing patient discomfort and increasing time spent on the patient. Additionally, Motion Profiling™ adjusts the speed during backrest movement to mimic the motion of the human body, delivering a more natural movement.
