Folding brackets solve challenges in medical areas

Areas such as hospitals, health centers and rehab receptions often pose major challenges to those who want to furnish them - and even more to them who work in them. There is usually a shortage of space, at the same time as space is needed for patients and staff to move around. Add to that regulations and the personel's desire for safety and flexibility, and you easily understand the difficult task interior designers are faced with. 

In recent years, however, a trend has emerged to solve the above dilemmas with the help of folding tables and shelves. The folding mechanism means that relief possibilities arise within a few seconds, which results in the medical staff being able to quickly adapt the room to the patient's needs and situation.

And folding shelves and tables are not only used in static rooms such as examination and operating rooms - they are also increasingly seen on mobile units like trolleys that nurses and other staff bring with them when visiting patients in their rooms.

Last but not least, our experts have seen that folding brackets are used in ambulances and other vehicles that can be considered to have a medical purpose. According to the reports we get, there is a constant lack of space in the cars and vans, and solutions for maximising the area are more than welcome by the medical staff.
