Smarter plug design
August 23, 2010
I spend enough of my life in hospitals that I’ve seen all sorts of equipment. Syringes, gauges, pumps, whosits, whatsits, etc. There’s also a slew of electronics.
For the electrical gear, I sometimes wonder about the safety. Specifically the safety of having electrical cords always being yanked out of walls and replugged in. I mean, plugs can get frayed at the end and a hospital isn’t a place that is Sahara-desert dry.
Can you say SHOCKING?!
Well, take a look at what’s been introduced – at least at Faulkner Hospital in Boston.
