Kingsway Group joins the fight against Covid-19 with SteroPOD

In response to the global Covid-19 pandemic — Kingsway Group have collaborated with world-leading healthcare professionals to bring you SteroPOD. This patent-pending modular sanitary airlock system is designed to reduce risk of spread of infection and increase safety for front-line staff.

We recognise the unprecedented threat of Covid-19 — right around the globe, and in particular to front-line staff who are putting their lives on the line every day. SteroPOD is our response to this pandemic and a vital tool in reducing the spread of the virus and keeping staff safe. Use it in your facility to:

• Reduce cross-contamination between infected patients
• Provide a controlled area for staff to put on and dispose of PPE
• Reduce infected items of PPE coming into the main patient area
• Provide privacy for the patient during their illness
• Create isolation rooms without having to move patients off-unit

Easy to assemble and operate — the SteroPOD is delivered flat packed and with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. Time is critical and we know you’ll want to be up and running as quickly and safely as possible. Simple construction supports you in doing so. SteroPOD suits a variety of healthcare environments; it seals securely around the patient bedroom/ward, and secures to the wall with a simple bracket system — allowing an overall projection from the wall of 40". 

Designed for clarity, safety and ease of function — SteroPOD’s clear signage, color-zoning and access to good light support ease of use and good working practices. Details such as the foot-operated door access are designed-in to further reduce risk and contamination. Smooth laminated surfaces allow easy cleaning.

Here’s why it works – Intuitive, common-sense design includes the essential key features required to reduce cross-contamination and spread. There are two clearly segregated areas for clean and dirty PPE and other equipment. The pod’s PPE holders can be tailored specifically to the needs of your clinical team, so there’s no making-do. The entrance and exit are separate and clearly marked. A cut-away floor area accommodates outward opening and anti-barricade doors, and clear vision door panels mean that staff can check occupancy before entering.

We are all in this together — and at Kingsway we want to do our part. The SteroPOD is just one vital way we are supporting healthcare staff, and we will continue to do so. If you’d like to know more about the SteroPOD, or other ways in which we can support you at this challenging time, please get in touch. We will do all we can to help you.
