Compact, lightweight, hospital-strong carts can support COVID-19 mass vaccination efforts now, and adapt to a wide range of clinical workflows going forward
Franklin, MA, February 3, 2021 – Jaco Inc., manufacturer of mobile and wall-mounted computer workstations for healthcare providers’ point-of-care applications, today announced a line of Jaco EVO Vaccination carts, available immediately to support hospitals’ COVID-19 mass vaccination requirements.
Based on Jaco’s breakthrough EVO cart platform, EVO Vaccination Carts are available in PC/LCD and laptop-locking models, and can be equipped with:
- Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) on-board power for full-shift runtimes, OR Jaco’s exclusive Power Blade™ dual-battery LiFePO4 hot swappable power system for 24×7 runtime
- Easy-to-reach, side-opening EVO ClearView Storage™ drawer systems
- Large capacity sharps disposal bins
- Front-mounted scanners for fast, accurate data collection
- 5” dual-wheel casters for smooth movement within the hospital, and in vaccination tents and drive-through vaccination centers
- A wide range of baskets, wipes holders, utility cups, printer shelves – whatever is required to support safe, efficient mass vaccinations.
A smart investment for now, and years from now
Built from lightweight, aircraft-grade metal, EVO Vaccination carts are engineered to deliver 10+ years of maintenance-free, trouble-free performance in the most demanding clinical settings. Ergonomic innovations, including EVO’s groundbreaking Comfort Glide Lift Technology™, result in an exceptionally light, perfectly balanced cart that’s easier for nurses to roll, maneuver and adjust for maximum working comfort.
Every EVO Vaccination Cart is backed by Jaco’s industry-best 10-year warranty. And every EVO Vaccination cart can be easily and inexpensively reconfigured for new workflows as the demand for vaccinations winds down.
That flexibility provides an extra level of investment protection that’s very important to hospitals right now, said Fred Rossini, CEO of Jaco.
“Hospitals are facing unprecedented pressure to make unplanned investments in equipment and technology for mass vaccination, telehealth and other pandemic-related workflows,” said Rossini. “EVO’s flexibility, durability and warranty coverage enable hospitals to deploy the best-in-class functionality they need now, with confidence that they can repurpose and redeploy their carts for new workflows as needed and get continued return on their investment for years and years to come.”
Superior infection control helps ‘stop the spread’
Every metal surface of the EVO is finished with a smooth, non-porous, high-gloss antimicrobial powder coat that wipes clean easily, stands up to all hospital-grade disinfectant chemicals, and withstands UV-B and UV-C sterilization.
“Starting well before the pandemic, we’ve seen more and more of our customers make significant investments in ultraviolet disinfection systems, to rid rooms and equipment surfaces of pathogens that cause hospital-associated infections,” said Rossini. “Unlike many plastics, our powder-coated metal surfaces can undergo UV disinfection without impact to the cart structure or surface finish. Hospitals can extend their UV investments to safely clean our carts, and to more effectively stop the spread of pathogens, including the COVID-19 virus.”
