New Kit is First to Offer Full Integration with Patient and Chamber
ANAHEIM, Calif., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Sechrist Industries, world leader in technology for hyperbaric healthcare, today announced the availability of a new Patient and Chamber Ground-Check System which will provide verification of all NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) hyperbaric chamber ground requirements and is the first to be fully integrated into any hyperbaric chamber. The new system eliminates the need for in-house grounding solutions or for complex commercial products that lay on the ground underneath the chamber. Integrated into the chamber itself, the Sechrist Hyperbaric Chamber Ground-Check System not only tests the patient and chamber independently for ground integrity, but this system also tests the ground integrity of the complete patient grounding pathway (ground stud, chamber and patient). Testing the complete patient grounding pathway to meet NFPA 77 provides a higher level of confidence and assurance in a facility's safety checks.
According to Jack Rollins, president and chief executive officer of Sechrist Industries, "Historical methods used to check grounding have never been fully integrated with the chamber; having our system integrated into the chamber makes the testing process much more convenient and efficient. With safety concerns in mind, it was a logical step for us to address the need for better patient-centered care and produce a Ground-Check System and testing protocol not just for Sechrist customers, but for all hyperbaric chamber customers around the world."
The new Sechrist Ground-Check System can be integrated into all new Sechrist hyperbaric chambers and is available as an upgrade kit for use in installed units. The kit includes a chamber ground test point assembly, a chamber measurement kit and all associated cables plus installation instructions for chambers already in use at Wound Care and Hyperbaric Centers.
For over 30 years, Sechrist Industries has been the global leader in development of technology for the advancement of hyperbaric healthcare. Monoplace hyperbaric chambers manufactured by Sechrist constitute the largest installed base in the world. The company offers a comprehensive range of equipment and is the only manufacturer of monoplace hyperbaric chambers that produces its own acrylic pressure cylinder, thus maintaining rigid control of quality and exacting specifications. Sechrist supports its many hyperbaric healthcare customers through a team of certified technicians available worldwide.
