PPDS partners with Glamox to improve patient viewing experience

PPDS is partnering with Glamox to improve the viewing experience for hospital patients with its medical grade, Chromecast built-in Philips Bedside TV range.

Working with Glamox, PPDS will now offer its self-balancing three pivot Luxo Maximum arm, with its range of 19” Philips Heartline Android TVs.

PPDS International Business Development Manager – Hospitality, Jeroen Verhaeghe, said: “The Philips brand is renowned in the healthcare industry and, at PPDS, our drive is to support that, providing solutions that make a real difference, both to healthcare institutions and, crucially, the patients they serve. With our dedicated Philips Bedside TVs, we are ensuring patients are able to access, view and enjoy content in the same way they would at home, whether that’s casting their own content or choosing from an extensive choice of channels, games and apps. By partnering with Glamox, we help to ensure patients can enjoy that entertainment from our Philips Bedside TVs with the maximum levels of comfort, with displays able to be positioned to meet their precise viewing needs, rather than the other way around.”

He added: “For our partners, it means they can now offer their customers a complete TV and mounting installation solution, simplifying the buying process while saving time money for faster project completions.”

Maximum comfort, maximum choice
Philips Bedside TVs have been designed to meet the specialist needs and requirements of professional healthcare environments, including hygiene and electricity isolation, as well as entertainment and information services for the patient.

With integrated Chromecast, content can be streamed from a personal mobile device –

The Bedside TV is built to a medical grade standard, with JIS Z2801 compliant antimicrobial housing to impede the growth of common microorganisms, while its hydrophobic toughened glass front features an anti-fingerprint, water-repellent coating to help maintain hygiene levels. The displays also include Galvanic Isolation technology to safely manage and contain electricity, removing the risks of impacting surrounding equipment.

Verhaeghe concluded: “Our Total Solutions strategy, working with some of the world’s leading software and hardware providers, is helping to remove time and cost frustrations.”
