- Our Story
For the past 50 years, improving the experience between patients and caregivers has been at the heart of everything we do. More than a million exam rooms later, we’re still focused on helping you deliver the best patient care with better medical equipment, smarter workflows and integrated technology. Let’s get started.
Only Midmark can offer a fully integrated point-of-care workflow designed to promote proper patient positioning for a more accurate blood pressure measurement with the ability to port data directly into the EMR, eliminating transcription errors.
Many healthcare providers are not aware of current standards for proper blood pressure measurement.1 If this isn’t addressed, it leaves health systems at serious risk. 9.8% of the population is affected by overestimation of high blood pressure errors.2 Multiply the cost of treatment for hypertension by the typical patient panel size and the cost of overtreatment could be as much as $135,000 per each practicing physician.3 The impact of overmedication can also result in complications such as dizziness, fainting, exhaustion or even patient falls. The Midmark 626 is the first of its kind designed to promote proper patient positioning for a more accurate blood pressure measurements.
Connect the IQvitals® Zone™ device to the Midmark 626 Barrier-Free Exam Chair with the integrated IQscale® to weigh patients quickly and discreetly from the comfort of the exam chair. Then, send data to the EMR with the push of a button.
The Midmark IQconnect® framework provides a seamless connection from your devices to your EMR system. In other words, it allows you to operate all of your devices and transfer data to the EMR from one, single “pane of glass” – your computer screen.
Ritter Barrier-Free Examination Chairs by Midmark adjust in height from 18-37 inches, improving accessibility to the exam chair and reducing the likelihood of staff injury. Ritter 224 & 225 Barrier-Free chairs are designed to offer low and high positioning heights so you can provide the best care to all patients, whether treating the elderly, expectant mothers or patients with disabilities.
The number of elderly and obese in the U.S. is steadily growing, and over one fifth of adults in America are disabled.5 Assisting patients with mobility limitations onto exam chairs has become a frequently performed task. Although caregivers working in healthcare facilities are one of the most at-risk professions for musculoskeletal disorders,6 little has been done to evaluate and reduce risk. The Ritter 225 is designed to offer low and high positioning heights so you can provide the best care to all patients, whether treating the elderly, expectant mothers or patients with disabilities.
Ritter Barrier-Free Examination Chairs by Midmark adjust in height from 18-37 inches, improving accessibility to the exam chair and reducing the likelihood of staff injury.
Using a Ritter Barrier-Free exam chair with an automated vitals device like Midmark IQvitals® or IQvitals® Zone™ allows you to bring more to the point of care, not only saving time but helping reduce common transcription errors.
