This pandemic has taught hospitals a number of lessons. They have had to be resourceful with PPE, adapt to ever-changing guidelines, and always be ready to accept change. Above all, your hospital has learned to be efficient with its resources. Standardization exists to aid in efficiency. Needles sizes come in certain standards, as do surgeon scalpels. One area that you may not associate with standardization is your computer monitor’s mount. Nearly all mounting systems are VESA mounts, but not every computer is compatible with these systems. Medical grade computers should be VESA compliant to avoid unneeded adapters, maintenance, and cut down on inefficiencies.
What Is Vesa Mounting?
The VESA Mounting Interface Standard, which is also referred to as the Flat Display Mounting Interface, is a collection of standards that applies to wall mounts. Specifically, VESA standards encompass the mounting of panel monitors, televisions, and other digital displays on walls or mounts of any variety. The standard was created in 1997 and has seen widespread adoption for its ease of use and rigid design. VESA mounting is used in nearly every industry, as well as in homes everywhere. It is one of the most common mounting standards. Even for mounts that are not VESA compliant, many adapters exist to ensure that they are always compatible.
The benefit of using medical grade computers that are VESA compliant is their ability to function right out of the box. Therefore your IT team will not have to worry about finding adapters to mount the computers onto your existing desk and wall mounts. Being VESA compliant also ensures that spare parts are always readily available from a variety of sources, and cuts down on the amount of inventory your IT needs in spare parts. Having all of your medical grade computers use VESA mounting keeps things organized and easily understood by all staff.
Tangent medical grade computers are VESA compliant, and can be mounted on a variety of different systems. They all feature four threaded holes in the correct rectangular pattern to be mounted on movable arms, desks, walls, and medical carts.
Medical Grade Computers That Are VESA Compliant
Medical Grade Computers like the E22B from Tangent feature VESA mounting systems. The E22B also has a full touchscreen. Therefore doctors and nurses can use the E22B while it is mounted to a wall, without needing a mouse or keyboard. It can be used in small offices or spaces where a full desk is not practical. It can also serve on mounted arms, allowing doctors to place the computer wherever they need.
