Bender UK has launched Suite 97, an immersive theatre environment, at its headquarters in Ulverston.

The state-of-the-art facility provides visitors with a full experience of Bender’s technology and equipment solutions within a modern, simulated operating theatre.

Gareth Brunton, managing director of Bender UK, said: "We understand that the challenge in the healthcare sector is two-fold.

"For existing hospital facilities, it is managing ageing and unreliable equipment that affects operational efficiency.

"For new build and extension projects requiring design consultation, it is better understanding what’s possible.

"This space is the perfect showcase to demonstrate what is achievable.”

The company frequently partners with leading healthcare suppliers to complement its offerings, delivering projects to enhance operational efficiency, and supporting the NHS and private medical groups in providing the best care.

Mr Brunton said: "Our investment in Suite 97 underpins our commitment to providing a one-stop-shop for our customers.

"It allows healthcare professionals to experience our complete solution first-hand, bringing to life the advanced capabilities we offer.

“From the initial design stage with consultants and end users through to equipment selection, installation, commissioning, as well as ongoing managed service and maintenance for a complete 360 solution, we are there for the entire journey.

"This trust, which we have built with our clients over the last 25 years in the UK and Ireland, is encapsulated by our dedication to supporting the equipment's lifecycle and beyond."

The investment features a mini plant room filled with medical IT and uninterruptible power and clinical technology.

This setting offers healthcare professionals a chance to view state-of-the-art tools in a realistic environment.

It exhibits contemporary medical infrastructure, auditorium capabilities, and remote conferencing via smart camera technology.

Suite 97's operating room has the functionality to live link pictures from the operating theatre, fully replicating what happens in a teaching hospital.

This shows how technology can manage and mitigate risks, ultimately preserving life and ensuring safety in a critical healthcare setting.
