Bavarian enterprise located in Unterschleissheim near Munich develops first mounting system for the healthcare industry with which users can integrate cables easily by themselves
Hygiene, safety and stability make high demands on supporting systems and mounting solutions for medical equipment and monitors. Patient monitors, flat screens and/ or keyboards need to be easily adjustable, however, be stable in every desired position. Even most aggressive disinfectants may not harm material or surface. CIM med GmbH has specialised in developing appropriate solutions for any requirement in the healthcare sector.
As first company worldwide the Bavarian enterprise provides a functional instrument mounting system with which cables not only run inside the system. The uniqueness lies in the fact that users can integrate the cables by themselves thus offering the possibility to change cables at any time: The so-called CIM Cable Integrated Mounting Systems is patent-pending. The advantages of this hidden cable management are obvious: Power and data cables are protected against external influences. At the same time the ever-annoying cable clutter in hospital environments is guided into regulated ways. Up to now cables were led outside the support arm or fastened externally with additional cable clips. The danger to cut the connecting leads to the digital circulation system is considerably lower with the CIM system.
Should a cable inside a height adjustable arm be damaged despite all unlikelihood, a possible electric shook is obviated by a potential equalization. As far as safety is concerned CIM med imposes much stricter requirements and regulations upon themselves than demanded by law. All mounting solutions hold a 6-fold safety factor of the indicated maximum weight. Only a 4-fold safety factor is required by law. A slow-flowing gas pressure spring is used which prevents the arm from shooting up quickly when the device or monitor is removed. This does not only ensure a safe operation of all variable height arms, but also allow the joints being moved smoothly. Having utmost confidence in their own high quality standards CIM med GmbH generously extends the warranty period to three years. Obligatory by law are two years.
At Medica in November CIM med will present the latest innovations in their medical mounting range: With a mobile support system and a wall-mounted lift system for IT applications will CIM med sustain their position among the established suppliers and help facilitate the everyday work in hospitals, clinics and healthcare facilities.
