Do mobile medical computer workstations require any special technical assistance or support for installation and set-up?

There are many different models of mobile medical computer workstations on the market, some which may require set-up on location while other arrive fully assembled. Even, however, with mobile medical computer workstations that require some assembly it is typically very simple, straight forward and will require basic tools such as screwdrivers. Most mobile medical computer workstations are going to come with the frame completely assembled however they will need to have the keyboard shelf and possibly drawers or doors attached at the location. Some will need to have the castors inserted into the base of the frame legs, but this is a very simple procedure. Installing and setting up the computer on mobile medical computer workstations is just as simple. There is no requirement for any specific types of extra equipment because the system is mobile. Most enclosed mobile medical computer workstations will have options power bars mounted within the unit or will have brackets to store the power bar, allowing for only one plug-in and outlet requirement to manage the power to the monitor, computer, printer or other electronic devices on the workstation. How easy are mobile medical computer workstations to maneuver? Designers that plan and build the various mobile medical computer workstations are aware of the space and movement constraints that occur in most typical health care facilities and settings. Generally most mobile medical computer workstations come with larger castors, allowing easy rolling even over uneven surfaces or when moving from non-carpeted to carpeted areas. Many mobile medical computer workstations offer two wheels with brakes and two that swivel, providing easy turning but lots of stability when the mobile medical computer workstations are in use. Additional options to make maneuvering the mobile medical computer workstations easy in hospital settings include their compact designs. They are created to not waste any space within the unit and also to avoid having anything protruding from the case or frame itself. Build in handles for pushing are typically provided along the desktop surface and may also be padded to act as bumpers when going through hallways, doorways or other narrow areas found in health care facilities. How are monitors secured on open types of mobile medical computer workstations? While many hospitals and health care facilities choose the fully enclosed and locking options for mobile medical computer workstations, there are just as many that prefer the open top workstations. These types of mobile medical computer workstations offer brackets that are permanently attached to the surface of the workstation that mount to the computer monitor. This option allows additional top surface work area around the monitor but also prevents the monitor from slipping or sliding when the cart is being moved. The use of brackets also prevents the needs for tie-down cords to be used when transporting the mobile medical computer workstations to and from rooms and locations. Other features to protect the monitors include options dust covers which are typically available from the computer manufacturer.
