Safe and easy isolation and transportation of highly infectious and vulnerable patients.
Superior Patient Care & Comfort
The EpiShuttle allows monitoring and advanced treatment to be performed during transport, including emergency procedures like intubation, IV and oxygen line insertion.
Safety of Health Care Professionals
The EpiShuttle provides a completely sealed transparent barrier between the patient and the health care professional, preventing any cross-infection.
Cost Efficient & Reusable
Transport vehicles don’t need to be disinfected after use, saving time and money. The EpiShuttle can be used over and over again because of our validated disinfection procedures.
Safe Medical Transportation
The EpiShuttle is designed for safe isolation and transportation of infectious patients. In addition to highly infectious diseases like Ebola, SARS, and MERS, the EpiShuttle is suitable for transport of immunocompromised and vulnerable patients both intra and inter hospital.
Transporting patients through hospital requires careful preparation and equipment. With EpiShuttle, the whole process becomes easier. The wards and corridors can stay in operation and don’t have to be disinfected after transport. Also, the medical staff are not required to wear full PPE during transport which saves time usually spent on donning and doffing.
As seen in the pandemic, hospital wards can quickly become overcrowded. When a patient needs to be relocated to a different hospital, the EpiShuttle provides safe and easy transport.
The unit is compatible with multiple stretchers and various transport vehicles ranging from ambulances to airplanes and helicopters. The transport vehicles don’t need to be disinfected after the transport which saves time for the medical staff to preform their daily work.
When to use the EpiShuttle?
The unit acts like a completely sealed barrier between the patient and the environment. In case there is a patient with highly infectious disease like Ebola, SARS, MERS etc, the EpiShuttle prevents the infection from spreading.
If an immunocompromised or vulnerable patient (cancer patient, burn victim, etc.) needs to be transported, the EpiShuttle will give the patient the protection from airborne pathogens in the environment. This could be particularly important for patients being transported after bone marrow or other transplants.
Positive Pressure Mode
With the positive pressure kit installed, the air ventilation system generates a positive pressure inside the EpiShuttle, relative to the environment. The positive pressure and the inlet filters prevent non-filtered environmental air from entering the isolator.
Negative Pressure Mode
In negative pressure mode, the air ventilation system generates a negative pressure inside the EpiShuttle, relative to the environment. 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 prevent contaminated air from escaping the isolator.
