OR integration: ACL's OR-CONSOLE® as a medical IT workstation in the OR facilitates the work of medical staff

Today's operating theatres are becoming increasingly modern and digital. The requirements are increasing due to the constantly growing number of new technologies and complex medical equipment systems. The challenge is to combine clarity with effective working methods and to ensure the safety and hygiene of staff and patients. In addition, new standards must be created to simplify the workflow in the OR.

OR-CONSOLE® as individual integration solution to improve the working method and clarity in the operating theatre

As OR-PC®, monitor or multi-screen solution in one unit, it offers a versatile and individual integration possibility in the operating theatre. Thanks to its modular design, additions can be made later and the operating theatre can be adapted to the latest medical standards in the shortest time possible - depending on the individual initial situation and requirements of the hospital. Specially developed for use in the operating theatre, the maintenance-free systems are already prepared for later updates and do not need to be disassembled during an upgrade.

OR-CONSOLE® as central digital interface for control and analysis tools

The OR-Console® can thus also serve as a portal and platform for manufacturer-independent video management and documentation solutions. ACL's bright, true colour IPS displays with all-round viewing angle allow video and image presentation - for example radiological or endoscopic images -, vital signs and patient records to be viewed from anywhere in the operating theatre. The visualisation and documentation of RIS/PACS, HIS and PDMS applications can be bundled at one point. Similar solutions are very difficult to implement with standard products.

The OR-CONSOLE® is water- and dust-proof on the front side. Dust turbulence is avoided by the fanless, completely enclosed design. The full-surface protective glass pane makes it completely disinfectable. The flush installation avoids surfaces or edges where dirt can accumulate. An additional antibacterial coating is optionally available.



Calibrated DICOM Preset for optimized display of grayscales is optionally available.

High-quality protective glass pane

ACL OR-CONSOLE® has a protective glass panel with anti-reflective coating (AR) and anti-fingerprint coating (AF) as standard. It is highly scratch-resistant and resilient, saves weight and increases the brightness of the display. The layout for the screen print can be customised.

Interfaces and switches

Individually adapted to the respective application, the OR-CONSOLE® can be flexibly equipped with interfaces, switches and buttons. The customer can also define the number as well as the position of the elements, regardless of whether the devices have a metal housing or a full glass front.

Flexibly expandable

ACL also focusses on a great many various equipment options, which enables customer-specific solutions with the OR-CONSOLE®. Various input devices, signal extenders, expansion cards for the PC unit and different display modes are just some of the available options.

OR-CONSOLE® in the University Hospital Ulm - ACL supplies state-of-the-art surgical technology

The well-being and recovery of every patient is the highest priority in a hospital. Modern and fault-free devices play an enormously important role in this respect, and have become a matter of course in the medical sector.

The hospital's clinic for ear, nose and throat medicine, head and neck surgery of the University Hospital Ulm is known nation-wide. The focus is on tumour therapy, reconstructive plastic surgery, paranasal sinus and skull base surgery as well as microscopic ear surgery including hearing implants for congenital or acquired hearing loss – areas which require first-rate diagnostics.

Displays with high quality

"The displays are particularly bright and have a very good contrast with a high resolution. We are also particularly impressed by the fact that there are no reflections that could interfere with an operation."

Cooperation at a high level

"The new devices are used to display the electronic patient record, but also for preoperative imaging of the patient or digital X-ray images," reports Prof. Dr. Thomas Hoffmann, medical director of the ENT clinic and head and neck surgery at the University Hospital Ulm. As a top national oncological centre, the University Hospital Ulm has high demands on imaging, particularly in the field of diagnostics. ACL's OR-Console® allows even the finest gradations in shading to be detected more quickly and reliably.

The most important aspect was the individual integration of equipment into the existing IT infrastructure. During an on-site meeting at the hospital, all relevant questions could be clarified and the premises could be examined in detail. During installation, our service technicians reacted flexibly to the conditions on site.
