HCI introduces new Infection Control Series televisions for healthcare use
HCI has announced the release of their new 26" and 32" Infection Control Series (ICS) RoomMate Digital Televisions for use in hospitals and other healthcare facilities to entertain and educate patients, visitors, and staff. The hospital grade televisions feature new technology that can reduce the risk of infection from the spread of bacteria.
The ICS televisions, part of HCI's RoomMate family of hospital-grade TVs, offer an innovative, sleek design made exclusively for the healthcare industry with patients in mind. Included on each unit is an all-glass, unbreakable front that is impervious to bacteria and can be wiped down with hospital-grade disinfectants. The whispering wall speakers eliminate bacteria-filled speaker grills commonly found on current hospital models, and the capacitive touch button panel accommodates weak fingers and never wears out. The ICS series also includes virtual channel lineup, media player, USB clone and 'Clean TV' button for use during TV cleaning.
"With the increase of HAI's, we felt we needed to provide hospitals with a product that is easily and effectively cleaned with commonly available hospital disinfectants. Further, new technologies now permit us to eliminate all the typical TV nooks and crannies that accumulate destructive bacteria," says Rick Pratt, CEO of HCI.
