The Next Generation - Atlas Medical Pendant

HCA’s Portland and London Bridge Hospital’s have equipped their brand new PICU and ICU with Brandon Medical’s next generation Atlas Medical Pendants. A total of 17 pendants were installed at the head of each bed to maximize the number of patient services immediately accessible around the patient.

Brandon Medical worked with the hospitals to install state of the art pendant systems in their PICU and ICU departments. The Atlas Medical supply pendants have been upgraded with new rounded arms, smooth exteriors and all hardware is concealed with no visible screws. The pendants loading capacity has been improved in terms of weight and the amount of services available (gas outlets, power sockets, data points etc). This can make working much easier for clinical teams in what is traditionally one of the most overcrowded and cramped areas of a hospital.  Future access for servicing is also improved, reducing downtime and maintenance over the lifespan of the pendant.

 Further improvements include a pendant brake indication. Blue and green markers give a visual indication of the brake button and respective bearing improving user manoeuvrability.  New lighting options can also be integrated, including LED up lighters in the extension arm, service head or both. These are also available with a dimming function improving patient comfort in the ICU.

 The HCA group offer private healthcare with the very highest standards of clinical skills and nursing care. The Portland Hospital is the only private hospital in London entirely dedicated to the care of women and children and the London Bridge Hospital advanced surgical and medical facilities provide their patients with excellence across a wide range of specialties.

 Brandon Medical specialises in creating solutions, and through working closely with the Portland and London Bridge Hospital’s, they were able to develop a design to match their exact requirements.
