Nest / Medical Equipment


Clinical thermometers are widely used in hospitals, but their storage poses technical difficulty. Normally stored thermometers are always cold. Cold thermometers increase the heating time when used as well as bringing uncomfortable coldness to patients. Our "nest" aims to make a change . First, it keeps thermometers in an intermediate temperature of 25 to 30 degrees through electrical heating systems. Second, its oblong shape ensures stability, preventing toppling over and saving space. This design also enables doctors to easily replace the sterilizers, such as alcohol sponge, through simply opening the cover.
