Dubai, April 14, 2010
The Netherlands-based EIN Gulf Lamboo, a world leader in developing advanced mobile healthcare solutions, is displaying its mobile clinic at a hospital in Oman as part of a free two year roadshow and screening campaign.
The mobile clinic, on display in front of Khoula Hospital in Muscat, reached Oman after touring UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar during the last few months.
Mobile healthcare is an imminent need for protecting large populations in the entire Middle East, by detecting some of the most widespread diseases in an early stage, a statement said.
It also performs best in remote areas for a wide array of professional medical services, reaching out to the population.
EIN Gulf Lamboo works in close partnership with medical equipment suppliers as Siemens and institutes – for example, breast cancer programme management and quality control.
Mobile healthcare includes advanced imaging diagnostics like mammography, ultrasound, MRI, CT, PET/CT, X-ray as well as full operation theaters, cath-labs, blood donation units and dialysis units. All units are exclusively designed and custom made for optimum performance through a long period of time.
The EIN Gulf Lamboo mobile units employ state-of-the-art technology that makes the vehicle more durable, easy to run, efficient and easy to maintain, the statement added.
“The featured mobile unit will travel through the Gulf for two years, offering free breast cancer screening,” said Dr Wajdi in Sabah Al Arabiya, representative of EIN Gulf Lamboo and Siemens Healthcare.
“With a special focus on women’s health, EIN Gulf Lamboo and Siemens Healthcare have combined their innovative strengths in constructing the Middle East edition of a mobile breast cancer screening unit,” he added.
“This unit is equipped with the latest Siemens state-of-the-art products for mammography unit and a multi-use breast volume ultrasound system. EIN Gulf Lamboo applies best practice in programme management, which in Europe resulted in up to 30 per cent reduction of mortality through mobile concepts for breast cancer screening,” Dr Al Arabiya concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
