Virtual Visitor Carts Are Crucial Tools in Combating COVID-19

By Team Altus | Published Nov 09, 2020

While COVID-19 travels around the world, our healthcare systems are facing new obstacles. Patients who are quarantined are left without visitors and personal protective equipment for practitioners is in short supply. Here is how virtual visitor carts are becoming a crucial tool for combating COVID-19.

Virtual Visitor Cart Benefits

  • Connects quarantined patients with their family
  • Protect clinicians
  • Preserves personal protective equipment (PPE)

Benefit #1: Connects Patients With Loved Ones

Provide quarantined patients with communication to the outside world during visitor regulations to contain the virus. A mobile tablet cart can help isolated patients feel less lonely.

End-of-Life Patients

Hospitals can provide end-of-life care patients and their family closure by bringing the virtual visitor cart to the patient's bedside so they can be together virtually in their final moments. In return, this can help ease the emotional burden a dying patient without family may cause the clinician.

Benefit #2: Protects Clinicians

Clinicians can use the devices to check on and communicate with patients without the risk of exposing themselves to the virus. It has also converted longtime opponents of telemedicine in hospitals into fierce advocates of the technology.

Benefit #3: Preserves Personal Protective Equipment

Virtual visitor carts can help hospitals cope with a nationwide shortage. Hospitals have already limited the number of staff who can enter isolated rooms to preserve PPE but some hospitals are turning to tablets. Clinicians can use the tablets to communicate with patients without having to gear up in the necessary PEE equipment and the risk of exposing themselves to infectious pathogens.

Meet "Cameo": Altus' Virtual Visitor Cart

Altus’ new virtual visitor cart, Cameo, helps close the communication gap between patients, their loved ones and practitioners. The cart is designed to provide height-adjustable support that can securely hold any tablet, which allows the patient to communicate handsfree.

Cameo is height adjustable, with a small footprint so clinicians can easily push and position near the patient’s bedside. Built with heavy-duty materials for easy cleaning and without diminishing the surface with EPA approved disinfectants against COVID-19. Protect family members and practitioners by preventing the spread of infectious pathogens by virtually connecting patients.

Altus' Cameo helps close the communication gap between patients, their loved ones and practitioners. Bring family members together who are in quarantine without visitors with our new mobile cart featuring a tablet holder and USB charging station. Add Cameo to your roster within 10 business days.

We're Here - And There - For You.

As COVID-19 becomes widespread across the globe, Altus remains focused on developing products hospitals need and delivering those products quickly.

Early March, we quickly launched a ventilator cart and powered telehealth cart to address the shortage of vital equipment. We made shifts in our operations and dedicated more team members to production. Our US-based supply chain helped us get workstations to our customers faster than our competitors.

  • Orders of 20 or less workstations are shipped within 10 business days. COVID-19 orders will be prioritized.
  • We are manufactured in the USA meaning, quick turnaround, shipping, and a robust supply chain.
