A bedside cabinet is a furniture item placed at the side of the patient’s bed in a hospital or nursing home and is used in place of a table to store the patient’s daily necessities (belongings). It can also be used to place down items while assisting patients or as a treatment table when providing treatment or nursing care. There are a variety of bedside cabinet types, including those with double swinging doors and drawers for excellent storage, as well as those with refrigerator storage and TV stand functions. Our cabinets offer a diversity of added function and features for enhanced use of space and comfortability.

Since our establishment, we have accommodated a variety of requests ranging from functional partition functioning furniture with optimized design, functionality, and storage, to slim, simple, and low-profile partitions. Partitions can be installed or placed between hospital beds to block the line of sight between patients and offer privacy. Partition furniture is becoming increasingly popular as a means of converting to long-term care hospitals.
New Product Development Story
New developments include 3-row and 4-row partitions
for hospital rooms, examination rooms, and reception areas.
These user-friendly partitions are designed for easy maintenance and privacy.
Infection Control Challenges in Hospitals and Increased Demand due to COVID-19 Outbreak
Until recently, most hospitals used curtains to partition patient hospital beds. Curtains are thin and have low sound and light blocking performance, making it difficult to provide complete privacy. Moreover, curtains fabrics are prone to odors and stains and require frequent maintenance, leading to poor labor cost performance.
In the medical field, maintaining adequate physical distance between patients and medical staff is vital to preventing the spread of infectious diseases. The outbreak of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus dramatically increased demands for medical partitions. However, due to the high cost of existing products, most places found it to install the large quantities required.
Development Requests from Hospital Personnel
Hospital officials seeking solutions approached us with requests to develop and manufacture a product that would meet such needs in the field. We subsequently conducted interviews with hospitals, during which time we were informed of the expense issues and requested to develop a more affordable partition that is easy to maintain but exhibits the same performance level as existing product. The key emphasis was on cost reduction.
Pursuits for Safe and Secure Partitions for Use by Essential Workers
Partition curtains come into frequent contact with numerous people on a daily basis. However, as they are made from fabric and have a large surface area, they are difficult to wipe clean and require periodic replacement, resulting in high labor and maintenance costs.
The polyester veneer panels used on our medical partitions makes them compatible with alcohol and sodium hypochlorite, allowing daily cleaning and wiping without concern. They are easy to maintain or move about, thereby reducing the burden of medical workers while offering added security and safety for patients. The medical partitions are available in five wood-grain variations.
Easy to Move About, Expand, or Fold as Needed
While hospitals and facilities demand strict hygiene and sanitary management, they also require effective use of space due to frequent movement of beds and equipment, and the constant flow of patients or medical staff coming in and out of the facility or rooms.
To meet such needs, we have equipped quick-moving joints to all our panels. This offers fast and easy maneuverability of 3-row or 4-row partitions to accommodate stretchers and similar situations. The optional additional panels allow you to easily expand or adjust partitioned areas, allowing for wider and more flexible use of space.
Significantly Lower Cost than Existing Products from Our Competitors
To achieve cost reductions while maintaining key functions, we eliminated handles for opening, closing, and moving.
For durability, robustness, and added stability, we employed steel frames and adjusted panel width in accordance with standard bed lengths.
Various Customer Comments after Installation
Unlike curtains, the partitions can be wiped with alcohol or hypochlorous acid solution, which is effective in infection control.
I feel that the added privacy and being able to section off areas, creates a more comfortable and relaxing environment for the patients.
The significant improvement was the compact design of the partition feet, which made it easy move around, even in small spaces.
The panels can also be readily combined, making it easier to move and rearrange items to create available space or adjust things when needed
