MANO / Hospital Bedside Cabinet


The project is attempt to combine a few aspects - ergonomics, safety and hygiene which together should improve patient physical and mental comfort. Their needs were the starting point for the proposed solutions. The cabinet consists of two elements: a stationary element - a base being an element of hospital interior, present in a patient room, and a portable element - a disposable organizer which a patient starting hospitalization receives. The organizer helps to quickly take possessions of a patient changing units, assures a patient that they will not leave some items in a bedside cabinet. And the number of repacking processes will decrease.
