As the healthcare system continues to struggle under the enormous weight of the Covid-19 pandemic, local pharmaceutical company Kiara Health has headed a proudly South African collaboration to develop a solution to scale up much-needed hospital bed capacity. Several world-class brands namely Xanita, Brandkonnect and Hemma worked together on this project in the fight against the pandemic. The beds were designed by Xanita for rapid deployment and can be set up in large open indoor venues such as exhibition halls, conference rooms and community centres. The system provides a solution for temporary hospital beds, partition walls and lightweight storage and furniture.
