Bridging the gap between hospitality and healthcare design, the patented overbed tables engineered and manufactured at Industrial Woodworking Corp were designed with the intent of fostering improved patient outcomes and contributing to enhanced employee satisfaction.
IWC’s design and engineering team sought greater functionality of the OBT through accessible storage, ease of cleaning and smooth non-handed operation. Flexibility was also key. The team created multiple color and style options, customizable options and a low-profile base that can be used with any existing hospital bed or chair.
The customer’s perceived quality of the OBT was paramount. Built with pride in western Michigan, the OBT’s can be thermoformed with SEKISUI’s polymer thermofilm KYDEX T® for enhanced durability. The pneumatic height adjustment has been independently tested to 10,000 cycles without loss of function. The powder-coated steel x-base offers superior stability. The OBT’s are excellent example of the innovation that the IWC team is known for. IWC has created the smallest overbed tables with storage available, and they hold multiple patents.
Sustainability is always considered in IWC’s design process. The 39″ OBT has 64% recycled content material and exceeds the criteria for LEED – CI, EB and NC. In addition, the KYDEX T® thermofilm has Greenguard Children and Schools® Certification.
