Women’s Health: Eliminating Barriers to Obstetric-Gynaecological Care Using Advanced, Safe and Ergonomic Equipment
Co-authored by David Hledík, Area Sales Manager, LINET MEA and Ms Catherine Wanjiru, Project Associate, Africa Health Business
In a report published by World Health Organization on the impact of medical equipment in contemporary healthcare services and systems, medical equipment are important for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of illnesses and diseases. Quality medical care should incorporate the appropriate, standardized and adequate resources, comfort amongst patients while getting the service, and safety of all people involved. In low resource settings it is not uncommon for expectant women and new mothers sharing beds or sleeping or delivering on the floor after improvising the space with unconventional items like mats. These conditions put the woman’s life on the line by deterring proper monitoring of the labour and birth process.
