COVID-19 QUARANTINE IN NURSING HOMES: CONTACT IS ESSENTIAL DURING ISOLATION. MOBILE DIGITAL COMMUNICATION WITH THE SMT SMART MEDIATABLE CAN MAKE A NOTICEABLE POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION TO FIGHT SECLUSION AND LONELINESS.
Digital communication in geriatric care – integrated into a mobile side table: Maintain contacts instead of silence. With the SMT.
There does not have to be isolation and loneliness in nursing care during the pandemic. Digital communication replaces seclusion and silence: face-to-face conversations with relatives. Entertainment and something to do using apps for the residents. Relieves the burden for the nursing staff. WLAN and the SMT are all you need. This new communication solution is now entering the facilities – connected, digital, mobile, safe, hygienic.
“The SMT is as easy to use as my mobile phone. Just much bigger and more comfortable." Anyone who is involved in the day-to-day care of elderly people can easily relate to the positive moments the latter can experience when training their memory and dexterity, exercising creative talents, reading online newspapers, solving Sudoku puzzles, writing and sending WhatsApp messages or emails, or simply watching an entertainment programme on app TV or from the media library – all that provides some variety.
The new SMT SMART MEDIATABLE from GREINER now brings the diversity of digital communication directly into nursing homes: the SMT is a communication tool that provides digital offers for residents individually through apps, and it is easy to use as a mobile WLAN device via Plug & Play that can be connected to the smartphone, and it perfectly meets both clinical requirements and the requirements for protection of personal data.
The SMART MEDIATABLE is used like a side table, is individually available to each person in the room or in the social area, and it can be operated ergonomically while sitting or lying down. And if a medical emergency should arise for the user, it has an impressive safety lift that allows the legs to be raised safely.
Most people today have a high demand for digital communication that goes far beyond telephone and television. The SMT paves the way to desirable and appropriate online services in a controlled manner. With its 17“ Full HD touchscreen integrated in the GREINER SMT-Cart with age-appropriate ergonomics, it brings communication to a new level. Simply put, we can say that the SMT SMART MEDIATABLE is a side table with an integrated touchscreen that also meets the requirements for filing and storage functions.
The new SMT SMART MEDIATABLE now opens up completely new possibilities for people in isolation. Originally developed for long-term therapy sessions such as dialysis and chemotherapy, in the current phase it has its finger on the pulse: it is a communication solution that conveys feelings and information very personally, comes to every resident in a mobile form via plug & play, and fulfils all clinical requirements. As an innovation in the field of digital patient services, the SMT is developing into a “game changer” in times of isolation of epidemic diseases in old people's and nursing homes.

Digital communication on the recliner, on a lounger or on the bed – mobile, flexible and adaptable – becomes reality and is no longer a vision of the future. Last but not least, this avoids the need for bulky monitors or TV-Sets in the room as well as their costly and time-consuming installation. In this way, therapeutic measures and digitalisation are brought together combining the benefits for residents and nursing home managers.
This patent-pending solution also offers patients a new level of security. For this purpose, the touchscreen „SMT board“ has an antimicrobially coated surface that protects against germs and is safe to disinfect. Unbreakable mineral glass protects the monitor and at the same time allows serving trays to be placed on it. The protection against dust and water meets the criteria of protection class IP65.
