BRYDEN STOKES MADE IT EASIER FOR QUEEN ELIZABETH HOSPITAL TO EFFECT REPAIRS WITH 3D PRINTER
Slowly but surely the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is embracing options from the 21st Century to ensure the medical complex remains at the top of its game…
One excited participant was Philip King, the Acting Director of the Engineering Dept, he explained how the 3D Printer would be used often for making parts to repair beds and in other similar projects.
Meanwhile, Mark Boyce – medical equipment engineer gave an example how the 3D printer already proved its worth and saved the QEH from overspending its budget. It seems the power supply for the Intercom in the Cardiac Unit was faulty due to the casing developing a leak, so they used a similar part from an unused device from the Labour Department and reverse engineer a new cover. This took 3 days, whereas if they had to order the same part, it would be very expensive and take way longer than 72 hours!
The donation from Bryden Stokes Ltd is valued at eight thousand US dollars altogether. The team from the popular distributors included Sasha Miller, Hasina Yarde and Keisha Alleyne.
