Spotlight: Smart Pod®
Designed in the wake of the 2014 Ebola outbreak, the Smart Pod is a deployable field hospital with all of the advantages of a modern hospital. Smart Pods provide a solution for areas of the world that have enormous challenges and limitations in accessing healthcare.
They can serve as primary care clinics, surgery centers, hospitals, and laboratory facilities or be easily and quickly transported anywhere in the world for an immediate response to global disasters.
Each pod can be shipped directly to its destination by boat, truck or air, and assembled in less than five minutes with a team of four. The structures are lightweight and eco-friendly, and can be customized for integration into various cultural communities.
Medical equipment and supplies are shipped in the interior of the unit, which is the footprint of a 8’ x 20’ shipping container. Once the container reaches its destination, it is quickly setup in minutes and expands to over 400 square feet. Custom features are also available.
