The Global Leader in Healthcare Ergonomics Demonstrates Vast Knowledge of Healthcare Space
CHICAGO — At Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo (HFSE) 2014, Humanscale Healthcare will underscore its extensive capability as a partner to healthcare organizations. Its experts, including President, Global Healthcare Heather Fennimore and two ergonomists, will deliver talks on groundbreaking subjects ranging from designing healthy behavioral health settings to implementing ergonomics principles at the point of care. Humanscale Healthcare will also display its revolutionary solutions that enhance care through ergonomic design.
Humanscale Healthcare’s authorities on ergonomics will lead and participate in discussions that enrich the discourse on healthcare design. Through these events, Humanscale Healthcare will demonstrate its deep understanding of caregiver needs and the requirements of the healthcare setting, reflecting the company’s ability to be a trusted partner to organizations.
- President, Global Healthcare Heather Fennimore will take part in two events that address challenges in the healthcare environment. On Monday, September 29 from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m., she will join guest faculty in engaging with the question “what would I like to achieve with generative space?” in “Collaborative Conversations: Advancing the Future of Designing for Health(Care).” She will also speak at “Extending ‘Behavioral Health Environments’: A New Collaborative Conversation to Explore How We Can Build a More Healthy World Together,” which will take place from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. on October 1.
- Director of Consulting Jonathan Puleio and Healthcare Ergonomist Sacha Burn will discuss the application of ergonomics principles in healthcare spaces to reduce caregiver discomfort, risk for injury and costs, in “Enhancing Caregiver Health Through Ergonomic Design” from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. on October 1.
As a partner to healthcare organizations, Humanscale Healthcare designs ergonomic products that can be tailored to a facility’s workflow and spaces. The TouchPoint T7 mobile technology cart automatically fits the caregiver with the touch of a button to encourage healthy postures. The ViewPoint V/Flex technology wall station accommodates the vast majority of caregivers in comfortable working postures, and can be customized to suit every application or setting. To streamline workflow, V/Desk features a resilient nylon work surface with a keyboard tray beneath that slides in and out, allowing caregivers to interface with their technology while accessing hard copy documents. The HealthPoint H1 technology cabinet serves as an unobtrusive touch point for caregivers in corridors, so that they may enter crucial patient data on the go.
These and other Humanscale Healthcare innovations will be on display at booth #500 at HFSE. For more information, please visit www.humanscalehealthcare.com.
