A flood of computers, on the internet describe themselves as ‘medical grade”. Out of that lot, just very few qualify to be branded as such. In order for a computer to pass “medical grade” standardization, it must attain core industry certification and more.
UL/cUl 60601-1 & IEC 60601-1-2 Edition certified:- this is the international standard for electromagnetic and radiation emissions that determine whether or not an electronic device is safe for near patient use.
IP65 certification:- this is also an international standard that measures the degree of ingress protection, i.e it establishes whether or not the computer is protected from liquid and dust penetration etc. This is vital in healthcare settings where disinfection and cleaning a medical PC isn’t just common, it is mandatory.
Computers are one of the most touched things in hospital, and thus standout as a serious point of cross contamination. Hospital Acquired Infections have therefore become a major concern for different healthcare facilities, especially with the rise of the viral outbreaks around the world. Consequently, in addition to the medical grade certifications, medical grade computers need to be antimicrobial.
Our Cybernet medical grade computers are the only fully antimicrobial computers available on the global market. Through a robust patented process, antimicrobial agents are permanently bonded to the touch glass, making it impervious to the growth and spread of bacteria.
Further to the screen, antimicrobial agents are also baked directly into the resin of our Cybernet computer housing, making the entire computer 100% fully antimicrobial. Unlike other devices that use a spray or a coating to protect their units, the antimicrobial properties in Cybernet’s medical computers will never wear off or lose efficacy.
In the battle to reduce the spread of infections in hospitals and clinics, an antimicrobial computer is an important tool to have deployed throughout a facility.
Healthcare facilities operate on a 24/7 schedule. That puts a lot of strain on a computer. In fact, commercial grade computers have been found to have failure rates between 15 – 30% in this type of environment. By contrast our Cybernet’s medical grade computers have less than 2% failure rate.
This is largely because, they are built using industrial grade components and shaped to withstand all the rigors of the healthcare industry. By improving reliability and decreasing maintenance and replacement costs, a medical grade computer also translates to better ROI over time.
TYPES OF MEDICAL GRADE COMPUTERS
Medical all-in-on computers (medical panel PCs) come in different shapes and sizes with features that are tailored to specific applications. They include;
