VTI helped create temporary, low-cost, in-room, negative pressure tents that make it easier for hospitals to scale their response to infectious disease events like the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020.
- Isolation rooms like this have a clear-view PVC or TPU canopy with a high-contrast floor and RF-welded seams. Double lap hook & loop allow replacement of glove, conduit panel, and hug suit components.
- External steel frame and disposable tent with integrated glove walls and HugSuit for full patient access with significantly less need for PPE.
- Air handling is included and meets the 15 air exchanges per hour (ACH) CDC guidelines for surgical procedure and delivery rooms. The .3 micron HEPA and MERV intake filters are welded directly to the tent canopy, greatly mitigating the risk associated with user error and improved safety during the disposal process.
VTI also manufactures vacuum lock cushions used to stabilize patients in preparation for medical procedures such as MRIs and CAT Scans. Cushions form to the patient’s body contour, maintaining a patient’s position over repeated visits for improved tracking of the patient’s progress. The product is filled with styrofoam beads and then sealed shut. A valve allows for a vacuum to be pulled on the product before it is finally sealed, tested, and packed for shipment.
