The design approach of "free": – liberation from the past. Experience tells us to retain – what has proven itself. The medical care unit "free" releases itself from classical forms whilst fulfilling all demands of functionality and manageability. This compact unit combines media supply with a wooden panel and an asymmetrically placed light. The sockets for high and low voltage current and the medical gasses are directly accessible from the front. Multimedia wall brackets can be integrated behind the wooden panel. The asymmetrical arrangement of the care unit and lighting elements enables functional optimization. Sockets and medical gasses are located well within reach next to the patient bed; the light illuminates the room and the reading space above the bed.
