One of WORLD’s clients, Siemens recently released information on how their products and services support the effort in the fight against COVID-19. Siemens’ technology is able to assess COVID-19 infection severity and can help mobilize testing quickly. One of these products is a wireless handheld ultrasound system that WORLD manufactures for Siemens.
When CT isn’t readily available, lung ultrasound may be a useful alternative aid. Siemens’ mobile unit enables technicians to scan for infiltrates in the lungs and is accessible in high-demand or isolated locations. Wireless ultrasound transducers with integrated controls allow technicians to make assessments of care while maintaining safe distances from potentially infected patients.
WORLD continues to operate during this challenging time as an essential business to our clients. Our team perseveres to deliver on our commitment to our clients and to do our part for the community. We have staggered manufacturing shifts, initiated remote work for those able, increased disinfection and cleaning procedures throughout our facility, and practice personal distancing offering additional personal protection equipment for our employees while we continue to support our clients throughout this unprecedented time.
