Upgrading a Medical Simulation Center’s Storage

Upgrading a Medical Simulation Centers Storage

A new 15,000 square-foot simulation center at this medical college looks like a typical campus building from the outside, but the interior tells a different story. Instead of large lecture halls, the center offers high-tech simulation rooms complete with hyper-realistic medical equipment, high-fidelity mannequins, and video cameras for training and debriefing.

The ultimate goal is to improve patient care by giving students realistic, hands-on training in medical procedures like providing oxygen therapy and inserting and removing IVs.

Here’s how Spacesaver storage products helped staff and students save space and promote efficiency.

High-Density Mobile Storage

Not all the expensive simulation equipment is in use all the time, so storage was a major concern during the building’s design phase. The architect optimized storage space by designing a large room fitted with a Spacesaver high-density mobile system.

The system allows staff to store mannequins, medical equipment, and other items in about half the space that these items would require on static shelving. Tambour doors at the open end of the system roll down and lock to secure the valuable contents.

Day Use Lockers

Because the staff was so pleased with the high-density system, they contacted the local Spacesaver consultant again when they noticed a storage issue in the debriefing rooms. The debriefing rooms are adjacent to the simulation rooms, and they provide a space for instructors and students to meet before and after practice sessions and tests. No one is allowed to take backpacks or other personal belongings inside the simulation rooms, so students and instructors were leaving these items in their cars or out in the hallways.

The Spacesaver consultant worked with them to design sleek, sturdy Day Use Lockers in the debriefing rooms to give them a place to stash backpacks, notebooks, and other items before entering the simulation rooms.

Smart Lockers at HOKA, an Athletic Shoe Company

Smart Lockers at HOKA an Athletic Shoe Company

A Modern Locale for Worldwide Runners

HOKA, an athletic shoe company that designs and markets running shoes, opened a brand new HOKA store in Hollywood, CA. They wanted to offer lockers so runners can safely store their car keys, wallet, and other belongings. Ojmar’s new OCS Smart lock made the choice simple thanks to its flexibility, locker management, and functionality. Below are the three main features that helped solidify HOKA’s choice for locks.

Hoka Edit 1
Ojmar’s OCS Smart with Bluetooth lets users open the lockers remotely with their phones, or through the keypad when their phones run out of battery.

Flexibility

The ability to use a smartphone or keypad to operate the lockers. Many runners like listening to music while running. For these people, closing and opening the lockers with a smartphone is ideal, while giving them a complete “touchless” experience. The user app remembers the locker used (number) and provides a backup user code for peace of mind if their phone runs out of battery. This solves 99% of the issues with combination locks.

Locker Management

Managers at the store don’t need a master key, which often gets lost. They manage everything from their Ipad or phone. They can operate lockers directly from the maintenance app, read battery status, read events, provide permission to other store employees and change the master code backup as many times as needed.

Functionality

Thanks to the maintenance app it’s easy to assign a locker with an expiration date and remotely provide permission to a user. This can be very useful for online orders to be picked up at the store. Permission is provided via a user code or smartphone permit.

Store managers can use these lockers for daily rentals, assigned employee lockers, or even online order pick-up.

For the HOKA Store Manager having the possibility to easily manage the lockers via a phone/Ipad is extremely convenient and one of the main reasons to choose the OCS Smart. They also value that the user app will be of great help to the locker users and reduce the time spent troubleshooting.
