Chief Clinical Physiologist, Debbie Woodcock, was explaining how the purchase selection came about to the hospital’s employee news forum:
“We scrutinised several kits in great detail, including accuracy, data logging, adaptability, networking, methodology and future proofing to name but a few aspects. With a combination of physicists, physiologist’s and nurses firing questions, to say we were a challenging team would be an understatement. We unanimously came to the conclusion that the Dantec Quickstep was the kit that most suited our needs. We have worked closely with the company to hone a bespoke system that incorporates the best of our current systems but also allows us to be part of the wider Urodynamic community with rapid fill techniques and water filled methodology. In addition we have moved towards the digitisation and linking of systems but ensuring robust data logging and security is maintained.
We can now tailor the investigations to patient needs and symptoms. We can repeat parts of the investigation more easily, reducing abandoned tests and repeat visits. We have been able to keep the same level of privacy with kit that is compact and unobtrusive via a wireless control room PC.
To now have the most versatile and adaptable piece of urodynamic kit possible which is fit for the future is highly satisfying! We have a mutually beneficial partnership where our knowledge has enhanced Dantec’s kit and their willingness to adapt/explore possibilities, enabled us to have incredibly powerful and yet cost effective equipment”.
