Grand Rapids, Mich. — Today, Altus, Inc., a U.S.-based mobile sit-to-stand workstation manufacturer, announced the addition of a new phlebotomy cart to their product line to provide maximum mobility and durability options for clinicians.
“When equipment isn’t adequate for work tasks, that daily strain can result in workplace injuries. It’s one of the reasons why investing in ergonomic solutions is so important to us at Altus,” said Craig VanderHeide, Altus chief executive officer. “Our new phlebotomy carts allow clinicians to work more productively and comfortably while taking vitals, therefore reducing costs associated with injuries and improving overall patient care.”
Clinicians work exceedingly long shifts, and institutions that implement ergonomic programs see a 21% decrease in time lost due to occupational injuries. Ergonomic workstations are crucial to this equation, as they can help keep care providers healthy and happy, longer.
Altus’ new non-powered mobile phlebotomy cart features the Altus innovative Ascend height adjustable base, and ample work and storage space for carrying necessary supplies. It was built to be compact enough to fit into small spaces, yet durable enough to roll over multiple flooring thresholds, including carpet. The carts can be customized with over 15 additional accessories to address specific healthcare needs.
Altus is known for its product durability. Many Altus carts that are in use are more than 10 years old — more than double the average lifecycle of a typical workstation in the healthcare industry.
“As one of the leading U.S.-based technology workstation companies, we are pleased to bring the phlebotomy cart into the Altus product line and to support these clinicians with tools that help them do their jobs comfortably, so that they can focus on what matters most: providing the best possible patient care,” said VanderHeide.
