The Simon Hegele Group is expanding its capabilities in the healthcare sector, in response to the increased demand for fast and flexible provision of medical imaging equipment with its own service.
The subsidiary Simon Hegele Mobile Imaging GmbH, based in Karlsruhe and founded specifically for this purpose, now offers a comprehensive service to support healthcare institutions quickly and with minimal preparation time.
For this purpose, the company has developed a solution that includes the temporary provision of a fully equipped CT container, including delivery, commissioning and collection, and offers a high level of comfort for patient treatment.
The container, which has been specially manufactured for this purpose, is delivered directly to the treatment site by truck, can be lowered hydraulically and extended to the sides to enlarge the treatment area. The shock absorber concept specially developed by Simon Hegele Healthcare guarantees safe transport of the sensitive device.
In cooperation with Siemens Healthineers, whose CT scanners are used, clinical operator training is carried out at the customer's request, which allows the staff to continue their daily routine as usual without additional disruptive factors or complications.
“Our mobile CT is the optimal solution when there is an acute increase in the need for treatment and a quick response," says Managing Director Mike Winter. “But our container is also ideally suited as a planned spatial alternative solution. After all, the container can be placed almost anywhere."
The University Heart Center Freiburg/Bad Krozingen is already using the first of several planned CT trailers from Simon Hegele Mobile Imaging in front of the main building in Bad Krozingen in order to maintain operation for CT images during the renovation work in the hospital.
