Employees in healthcare usually use a pager to call for urgent assistance. The use of personal mobile phones raises many questions about hygiene, reliability and speed with which assistance can be requested. A messenger specially applied to the healthcare sector is therefore preferred.
The company ARA from Aalten has asked QDP to develop the housing for this Wi-Fi messenger that is easy to operate, reliable and hygienic. In addition, the device must use existing wifi networks.
QDP answered this question by developing a housing that is the thinnest of its kind and also stimulates intuitive use by applying rubber parts of different colours. Through the clip at the back, the messenger can be attached to a belt or the chest pocket. This clip and internal speaker can be removed, making the housing easy to clean. For the electronic components this is not a problem because the housing is waterproof.
