Comprehensive COVID-19 rapid medical overflow deployment solution developed by Xanita and executed by Intamarket Graphics and Intamarket Medical Technologies (Intamed).

With over 5000 recorded infections – of which almost 4000 were confirmed over a four-week period – South Africa is gearing up for an increase in COVID-19 patients as the country begins to ease its lockdown regulations. In preparation, hotels and convention centres are being converted into makeshift healthcare centres and field hospitals are being created in every province. Now some local innovators have come up with an ingenious design that makes affordable, quick-to-assemble and easily sanitised beds available to government.

Watch how quickly and easily these beds and partitions are setup – from flat-packed to constructed in 45min with 3 persons, no on-site tooling and no electricity required. Lightweight & durable, fast turn-around times, 100% repulpable, non-toxic and no VOC’s. This cost effective solution is designed to be rolled out using existing infrastructure, with no need for investment in costly rapid construction efforts. With our solution we can have places like Gallagher estate or the CTICC converted into medical overflow facilities within a matter of hours.
