Working with STERIS to develop its vision of mission-critical OR monitoring ideally pairs the core competencies of two industry leaders.
Worcester, MA (PRWEB) March 4, 2010
Wright Line LLC, manufacturing solutions leader for advanced tech environments, today announced that it has joined forces with STERIS Corporation, a global leader in innovative surgical technologies, to create functionally advanced nurse Documentation Stations for operating suites.
STERIS required a designer/manufacturer that could translate STERIS' surgical technology management vision into a practical and easy-to-use solution for OR staff. The STERIS-Wright Line collaboration produced an integrated surgical documentation workstation using Wright Line's Profile® Advanced Console System as a starting point. The new surgical documentation station not only addresses the many needs of circulating OR nurses, but also meets the clinical, management, ergonomic and technological integration requirements of advanced surgical environments.
"We needed a collaborator who could listen and accurately translate our expertise in surgical environments and understanding of our customers' needs into a clinical reality," said Eric Halsey, associate product manager at STERIS. "With 75 years of manufacturing and design experience, Wright Line has the expertise to produce a dependable product of superior quality that meets STERIS' standards and our customers' expectations."
Designed to enhance visibility for the surgical field, the documentation station addresses the demands of today's modern operating room. The station provides built-in white boards, easy access to keyboards and monitors, adjustable task lighting, generous work surfaces that withstand frequent chemicals and disinfectant cleanings and concealed/protected cabling.
"The OR Documentation Station is a great example of Wright Line's mission to integrate people with technology in mission-critical settings. Wright Line is known for its world-class ability to gain a deep understanding of clients' needs, create a collaborative plan and execute that plan with great care and speed," said Brad Lynch, Wright Line's Business Unit Leader for Technical Environments. "Working with STERIS to develop its vision of mission-critical OR monitoring ideally pairs the core competencies of two industry leaders."
