In Turkey,organizations are teaming up to manufacture 5,000 ventilators to treat COVID-19 patients. The lung ventilators use Zuljana’s ZL15PC-C Medical All-in-One PC to display patient vitals and control the breathing apparatus. The ZL15PC-C is ideal for the lung ventilator because it has a 4:3 screen ratio and can run the Linux operating system. The system’s software was already developed when the medical device manufacturer came to Zuljana. So, we worked to find the right computer hardware fit.
The ZL15PC-C is not actually available in Zuljana’s product catalog. When it comes to medical OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), computer hardware needs can be very specific and unique. Zuljana is used to developing one-of-a-kind solutions for new medical devices and machines. In this case, the ZL15PC-C Medical Computer had all the right capabilities, but was not the right screen ratio. Zuljana carries similar models in a 4:3 screen ratio, so it was a matter of combining the right features, into the right housing.
Another feature of the ZL15PC-C that makes it perfect for the lung ventilator is its full-flat, waterproof front bezel, which can easily be sprayed and disinfected. This computer is also housed in medical-grade antimicrobial plastic, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other germs. It is lightweight enough to be pushed around on a medical cart, but it is durable and can withstand bumps and vibrations.
Normally, it can take months or even years to deploy a new medical device or machine, but the Coronavirus pandemic requires us to move quickly. Zuljana was able to send 12 computers for testing to the Turkish biomedical manufacturer. The ZL15PC-C proved to be the best PC for their lung ventilators and Zuljana proceeded to send 100 more units. Zuljana will continue to prioritize this order and other COVID-19 related orders, and work to send the rest of the units to Turkey over the coming weeks.
