Patient confidentiality is a prime consideration. The freedom of the plug and play concept allows

Consult has uniquely been designed primarily to provide a private space with a focus on user comfort. Stringent attention has been given to all aspects of the physical environment including internal dimensions, desk size and position, lighting colour, brightness and location, and airflow. With consultations lasting 4 hours, often under stressful conditions, the pod experience has to support the difficult task performed by professional users.
For a high-traffic consultancy pod, a durable and wipeable upholstery fabric will provide the most practical and hygienic surface. The leather-look vinyl upholstery of Consult has an additional proven protective coating that’s engineered to create a tough, effective barrier against germs, abrasion and stains, including protection against coronaviruses, including influenza.
Close attention to easy access has been built into the Consult pod. All versions of the pod have a threshold strip allowing the users' preferred chair to be wheeled in.
The handle has been specifically chosen to be simple and accessible for those of all dexterity levels.
A key feature of the Consult is its modular plug and play flexibility. As estates requirements change, Consult changes with it. The pod is designed to be broken down and reassembled, multiple times, with all parts reusable. Changes can be made by a Spacestor fitting team or we can train your own FM team to undertake changes.
The Consult range is based around the plug and play principle. Modules are fully assembled with all services powered from one 3-pin plug. Options for data connectivity include wired ethernet access or connection to the main building Wifi.
Security options include free access for security controlled environments or the option to restrict access to approved users; a key requirement if pods are located in public areas like waiting rooms or corridors. Pod accessibility can be incorporated into the building management access control system for minimum admin. Enhanced asset management can be achieved by incorporating this into meeting space booking systems ensuring a pod is always free for a consultant’s scheduled clinic.
