In the new Dräger Design Center in Mumbai, India, users and planners can work together with Dräger experts to plan and design their medical workplaces under realistic conditions. Located in the Goldline Business Center in Malad (West) in Mumbai, India, the 290 square meters showroom is the ideal setting for medical users, planners and architects to experience cuttingedge Dräger medical technology in real-life setting.
“The opening of our newest design center and showroom marks an open invitation for our customers to come and experience this functional space where we have recreated acute care areas” explains Michael Karsta, President of the region Middle East/Africa. Visitors of the “hospital area” can experience their workplace before it is actually set up. The visitors of the Design Center can trace a patient’s progress through the stages of transport ventilation, resuscitation, induction, surgery, post-operative, recovery and intensive care. This gives visitors first-hand experience with various Dräger devices in action, such as anaesthesia workstations (e.g. Fabius Plus, Primus) as well as ICU ventilation, respiratory monitoring or ceiling supply units. “In addition to the devices, we also showcase other solutions along the clinical pathway, such as a modular operation room”, explains Nikil Rao, General Manager of the medical division in India. Using a 3D computer application, the desired configuration can then be created as a virtual working environment and can be documented. This results in a customized solution that is tailored to the client’s precise specifications, without the need for costly modifications after installation.
The design center offers a training room to accommodate 22 people and an additional meeting facility for 8 people.
The market for medical technology in India is rapidly expanding. The medical technology industry is expected to grow from USD 2.75 Billion in 2008 to USD 14.0 Billion in 2020. This growth is fuelled mainly by demand from major cities.
