Advantages of the EpiShuttle

The EpiShuttle is an award-winning design, developed with direct input and guidance from clinical experts, medics, and patients.

EMS SYSTEM COMPATIBLE

The EpiShuttle is CE 1789 compliant and can be safely used in ambulances, helicopters, and airplanes. Adapters are available for several leading stretcher brands and an L-track attachment with universal brackets ensure that the EpiShuttle can be secured safely regardless of stretcher or vehicle type.

AVOID LIABILITY

The EpiShuttle is CE-marked as a Class 1 Medical Device.

NO DISINFECTION

Vehicles that are used for transport of highly infectious patients in the EpiShuttle do not have to be disinfected after patient transport. This saves time and money and ensures that vehicles can remain in operation as much as possible.

SUPERIOR PATIENT COMFORT

A soft mattress and adjustable backrest and leg support gives optimal patient comfort during transports of up to 24 hours. Visibility through the transparent hardtop allows for better communication between the patient and surroundings.

 

LESS PPE DURING TRANSPORT

When transport a highly infectious patient inside the EpiShuttle, medical personnel do not need to wear full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). This allows for longer shifts and reduces the risk of making mistakes due to fatigue or reduced situational awareness.

 

DUAL PROTECTION SYSTEM

The EpiShuttle can be configured to either protect the surroundings from the patient, or to protect the patient from the surroundings.

COST EFFICIENT

The EpiShuttle is reusable and can be safely disinfected and re-assembled in less than two hours. This significantly reduces the cost per transport compared to single-use transport isolators.

SUPERIOR PATIENT CARE
Glove ports provide medical personnel access to patient’s entire body. Food, medicine, and equipment can be safely sluiced into the EpiShuttle. The patient can be intubated and mechanically ventilated during transport and IV-lines and monitoring equipment can be attached.

Selected Features


Bed adjustment for patient comfort

The integrated bed is adjustable both for knee angle and backrest, allowing for increased comfort for the patient and better conditions for clinical procedures. Adjusting the position improves breathing and communication, and hence contributes in reducing anxiety.

Port Installation

Installation of operator ports and medical ports

The operator ports outer and inner rings are connected by a threaded connection which are easily attached and secured.

The port configurations, operatorports , wireport and ventilationport are attached to the outer rings by a threaded connection, and securly locked with triple operating securitylocks.

Ventilation System

The air ventilation system generates more than 15 air exchanges per hour to ensure maximum patient comfort and safety.

In positive pressure mode, the air system generates positive pressure, relative to the environment, inside the device. The air flow is directed through the inlet filters at the foot end, and through the outlet filters at the head end. The positive pressure and the inlet filters prevents the non-filtered environmental air to enter the isolator.

Negative pressure protects the outside environment

In negative pressure mode, the air system generates negative pressure, relative to the environment, inside the device. The air flow is directed through the inlet filters at the head end, and through the outlet filters at the foot end. The negative pressure and the outlet filters prevents contaminated air to escape from the isolator.

Operator ports

For optimal treatment during transport, the EpiShuttle has eight interchangeable operator ports integrated into the hard top.

The ports are positioned to ensure access to all parts of the patient’s body, including airways. This enables intensive care treatment of the patient with possibility for procedures such as intubation, inserting central venous lines, urinary catheter, etc.

The ports have inner and outer lids that fasten and seal with a
quarter-turn connection

This enables intensive care treatment of the patient with possibility for procedures such as intubation, inserting of central venous lines, urinary catheter etc.

The gloves

The gloves have ambidextrous design, made from flame-resistant CSM/hypalon, compliant with European Directive PPE Category 3, and tested according to EN 374:2003, EN 421:2010, EN 388:2003.

In case of damaged or ruptured gloves during use, the gloves can be replaced by using a EpiShuttle change bag.

The gloves are reusable, and can be removed and reused if no damage or rupture are discovered.

Waste bag

A waste bag can be connected to the Epiport200 operator port, providing a closed space for waste (used urine bag, wet tissues etc.).

 

Sluice bag

A sluice bag can be connected to the Epiport200 operator port and can be used for transferring equipment, food or medicine to the patient.

Medical ports

The two medical ports are located at the head end of the EpiShuttle base. These ports can be equipped with a medical wire membrane or a ventilation sleeve. 

The wire port

The medical wire membrane is made of a highly flexible rubber material, permitting a secure passage of IV lines, monitoring cables, or oxygen lines.

The ventilator port

The ventilator sleeve is a flexible and transparent sleeve for the entry of mechanical ventilator hose. The sleeve seals the HEPA filter that connects the ventilation hose on the clean side and the oropharyngeal tube, mask or other patient respiratory device inside the EpiShuttle.

This ensures that the entire mechanical ventilator and ventilator hose are on the clean side.
