Cassidian expands mobile field hospital range
Cassidian has announced that it will team with Philips Healthcare to offer a new mobile field hospital solution. The new deployable unit will be fitted with a CT scanner with high image quality and low dose capabilities, designed to bring better deployable medical care to warfighters.
According to the company, the fully integrated Philips scanner provides the most effective metal artifact reduction available. This makes safe diagnosis possible with bullet wounds or metal implants, which otherwise would cause artifacts in the images and not allow a proper diagnosis.
This solution will form part of Cassidian's TransHospitals for defence, peacekeeping and relief organisations. The container and tent based system includes the full spectrum of medical services from initial first aid stations to fully qualified hospitals, along with infrastructure and support facilities such as power supply, dining, sanitary, and communication equipment.
So far, Cassidian has delivered complete hospital systems to the German Army, Air Force and Navy, to the Singapore Navy, the Spanish Air Force and the Slovenian Army – a total of more than 500 TransHospital modules. The company has also developed a concept for a Future Combat Support Hospital for the US Army: a highly deployable, rapid to activate and fully integrated solution for sustained operations in a full range of conditions.
