What is Inoroom?
Inoroom is a new integrated operating room solution i.e. a turnkey solution purchased from one supplier. Inoroom combines functionality and efficiency in a hygienic and intelligent manner. Inoroom is created by three Finnish companies, each a top expert in its field: Halton (ventilation), Hermetel (clean rooms) and Merivaara (operating room control system and furniture).
What is the operating idea of Inoroom?
Inoroom consists of three central factors: hermetically sealed clean room, ventilation system and control system of the operating room. Inoroom hygiene is created particularly with the sealed wall structure and ventilation. The sealed space guarantees that adjusting ventilation is as precise as possible and ventilation is controlled efficiently. The control system and its automation enhance the use of the operating room.
Attention has been paid to the flexibility of use of the facility. The use or configuration of the operating room can be changed with easy modifications because the ceiling units for the equipment can be moved without touching the structures.
Inoroom is a permanent operating room solution applicable to hospitals meeting Western requirements. Inoroom is particularly suitable for new constructions, but it can also be retrofitted if the clean room structure can be built inside an already existing unfinished space.
What are the advantages of Inoroom compared with a traditional operating room solution?
Inoroom is a turnkey solution consisting of the basic configuration of an operating room excluding the hospital equipment. The buyer finds this a clear-cut solution, because the solution is offered for a total price depending on the components, and the entire operating room comes from one supplier, not a number of subcontractors.
This delivery method minimizes the risk of cost increase and delivery delays, and is best for overall functionality. Inoroom delivery includes the necessary work from engineering to construction and commissioning measurements.
Inoroom solution allows you to maximize used capacity because the control system cleans and adjusts ventilation to suit each operation automatically. The settings specific to each operation and surgeon allow quicker changes between patients. The energy-efficient ventilation of the operating room solution lowers the consumption of energy.
What are the components of Inoroom?
Inoroom consists of three central factors: hermetically sealed clean room, ventilation system and control system of the operating room.
Hermetically sealed clean room
The outer shell of Inoroom, i.e. the wall structures, form a hermetically sealed clean room. The sealed wall structure provides the prerequisites for ventilation that functions as desired. It ensures a hygienic operating room and energy-efficient ventilation.
The ventilation system manages the temperature, level of micro particles and humidity of the operating room and air movement. The ventilation system also ensures the desired pressure differences between the operating room and other facilities.
The operating room functions, such as air conditioning, can be controlled according to its use and required hygiene level, which saves energy more than the current systems.
The control system makes a smart operating room and it controls the operating room’s ventilation and lighting, for example. A connection for remote consultation is also possible with the system. Thanks to the open control system, the control feature is not specific to equipment brand or manufacturer, but the system is able to control all the devices equipped with user interface software enabling equipment control. The control system uses clear language and is easy to use.
Inoroom utilises smart energy use in ventilation and lighting. The control based on the patient list and the settings specific to each operation and surgeon allow quicker changes between patients.
