In the healthcare industry, where patient comfort and well-being are paramount, the choice of materials plays a crucial role. Sustainable materials not only contribute to environmental responsibility but also offer unique benefits for healing environments.
Which is why I'd like to celebrate Tasman Medical Equipment and the mahi of Ian Cooper in bridging circular innovation to the medical sector by embedding Cleanstone into their iconic trollies for hospitals.
While the medical sector in Aotearoa is a significant generator of waste, accounting for approximately 7% of the country's total waste stream. We've began noticing the following design trends emerging and have some ideas over how Cleanstone might supercharge the movement towards spaces that are zero waste and low carbon.
Embrace shift towards versatility in spaces: Cleanstone can be used to create a wide range of healthcare applications, from partitions and wall panels to countertops and even furniture pieces, adding both style and functionality to healthcare spaces.
User well-being (both practical and emotional) is at the centre of every healthcare space: The smooth, seamless surface of our panels reflects light effectively. This can help create a bright and airy atmosphere that can contribute to patient comfort and well-being.
Enhance hygiene: Our non-porous panels are easy to clean and disinfect, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and promoting a healthy environment for both patients and staff.
Embrace circularity: By utilising Cleanstone, you're actively diverting waste from landfills and contributing to a more sustainable future for healthcare facilities.
As a medical facility your choice of choosing to use sustainable materials is a statement that showcases your commitment to environmental responsibility and contributing to a more holistic approach to patient care.
For me seeing Tasman use Cleanstone this way is a step in the right direction and a blueprint for healthcare environments that foster healing and well-being for everyone. Go checkout the awesome mahi Tasman Trolleys and Medical Equipment is doing using the link below!
