Bar chart / Hospital visitor seat cum bed

Bar chart
Bar chart

Domestic health insurance wards are cramped with little free space. Medical instrument units are big, making families and nurses uneasy to move around to attend to the patient. This design solves the problem of limited space by combining the cabinet, the visitor's couch and the chair into one whole new unit. This allows the visitor's couch and medical equipment to be kept and maneuvered around easily. It gives visitors space to sit and facilitates the effective use and organization of space.
