Outpatient surgery centres depend on flexibility, precision of timing and handling, mobility and safety; the efficient use of space and cost-effectiveness are also critical. In short, patients should be fully involved in processes before and after an operation. In the modern clinical environment, cumbersome hospital beds make life needlessly difficult for healthcare teams and patients alike. Hospitals need couches that can admit prepared patients for operations with maximum flexibility and stability, transport them safely and comfortably to the pre-op waiting room, enable flawless repositioning and move patients safely and comfortably to the recovery room after an operation. This is precisely what the new MULTILINE NEXT AC delivers.
