AR Tech, an aerospace and medical equipment manufacturer, announces its Patient Isolation Transportation Unit is ready to help.

Fontana, CA, March 23, 2020 AR Tech, an aerospace and medical equipment manufacturer, announces its Patient Isolation Transportation Unit (PITU) is now ready for production. The unit encloses individuals suffering from highly contagious diseases like Covid 19, providing a secure barrier between the patient and medical staff.

“The PITU is a negative pressure isolation enclosure that provides protection from possible contamination of individuals and surrounding areas during transportation,” said Bud Weisbart, AR Tech vice president of marketing. “The AR Tech team worked on the development and manufacturing of this unit for more than a year, and now it’s ready for our frontline medical professionals to pre-order.”

The PITU by AR Tech is pending final FDA approval but is ready for pre-order. AR Tech plans to begin manufacturing and delivering orders of the Patient Isolation Transportation Units as soon as possible. For medical facilities, PITU will be made with FDA medical grade flame retardant vinyl and is composed of motors and filters which prevent contagious viruses and bacteria from spreading during transportation. PITU is also available for commercial applications with non-medical grade vinyl.

The PITU universally adapts to almost any gurney currently in use at hospitals and other medical facilities by utilizing custom stainless-steel adaptable footings that fit into the IV pockets of those gurneys. PITU also provides protected contact of patients during transportation through gloves that are sealed to the inserts.

“We hope the unit will provide much needed safety for our medical professionals during these difficult times,” Weisbart said. “Together, we can survive this pandemic.”
