An IC room module as a solution to the coronavirus crisis
9.4.2020 – Granlund’s hospital design and Inoroom have developed an intensive care room module.
Granlund’s hospital design and Inoroom have developed an intensive care room module that could be an answer to the potentially increasing need for IC facilities. The IC room module is a pre-fabricated module that could be placed in exhibition and conference venues, such as Messukeskus in Helsinki, or outside a hospital.
The concept could be developed quickly as it is based on the Inoroom operating room module. In practice, the IC room is a lighter version of the operating room concept, requiring considerably less technology. The operating room modules have been installed Carea Sairaalat Oy’s Kotka central hospital, for instance.
The companies participating in the Inoroom concept are the clean room element manufacturer Hermetel Oy, the ventilation technology company Halton Oy and Merivaara Oy, the leading manufacturer of operating tables and OR integration systems. All three companies have production facilities in Finland. Granlund has been managing the overall design and acting as a specialist.
Solution is ready for use in May–June
A few dozen of these “light-version” IC rooms suitable for treating coronavirus patients could be manufactured in a couple of months. The Inoroom operating room takes approximately one month to build and the manufacturing process of IC rooms could be shortened to roughly one week. If the project started now, the IC modules would be ready for use in May–June. The solution has been introduced to hospital districts and could also have international potential.
