EIU 16 is a highly mobile isolation ward for infectious patients. The inflatable frame was specially developed for operation within a hospital room to convert an existing room into a fully-fledged, vacuum-ventilated isolation ward with integrated disinfection shower and changing room or airlock at short notice.

A special HEPA filter/ventilation system draws the air from the various parts of the EIU 16 and thus produces a negative pressure of approx. 20 Pa. The filter unit has an additional UV light source as additional protection during operation and also when changing the filter.
Automatic valves allow the inflow of fresh ambient air and maintain the negative pressure.
The entire cabin is bolted to the air frame and can therefore be replaced quickly and easily, even by inexperienced personnel, in the event of damage or contamination.

The combination of disinfection shower and changing cubicle is manufactured separately and also mounted with screws. 2 separate entrances provide quick and easy access for material and equipment as well as the patient on the one hand and the medical staff on the other.

Access for the patient and equipment remains sealed during operation of the EIU.
