Original Press Release:

Advanced Product Design and Manufacturing Engineers a New Medical Computer Cart

Without an electronics control or system engineer in-house, an office furniture company – hoping to expand its product offerings in the mobile hospital marketplace – teamed with Advanced Product Design & Manufacturing.

The company knew it wanted more than a me-too product, understood that an advanced ergonomic approach needed to be taken.

It also knew it needed an electronics design and manufacturing resource with the capability to translate those needs into "more than a 'me-too' product."

The solution:

1. A compact, ergonomic design facilitated the hospital cart's use in tight, high-traffic workspaces; whether being pushed, pulled or accessed...or simply being adjusted in height in the process of delivering high-level healthcare services.

2. An advanced control scheme enhanced through use of a cost-saving, proven off-the-shelf multi-media computer on the cart.

3. Android, the Google-developed mobile operating system, was utilized as the system interface, maximizing the features of capacitive touch screens to instantly deliver vital information brighter, sharper and highly accurately.

4. An exclusive design utilizing an embedded controller for dedicated motor control, system power management and interface to the multi-media computer.

5. Supported all aspects of UL, CSA, and CE regulatory compliance requirements for the product.

6. For nearly two decades, APD&M has provided custom control boards design and follow-on manufacturing to ensure a better overall product solution to its customers delivered from its plant in suburban Philadelphia.
