With the onset of the covid-19 pandemic, caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, the adoption of emergency systems in the health sector, capable of assisting and supporting intensive care units has become dramatically unavoidable. Responding to the lack od sterile environments, STERIVAN MED is a mobile device that can be positioned anywhere, expanding the possibilities of assistance in intensive care.

STERIVAN MED  can be applies in the following cases:

  • Protection against virus or bacterial infection, hospital infection, environmental pollution and promiscuity with other patients
  • Blood tumours and dyscrasiae: any kind of leucaemia, lymphoma, haemolytic anaemia.
  • Postoperative isolation.
  • Marrow grafts, kidney grafts and any kind of organ implantation.
  • Invasive and surgical acts (catherization, counterpulsation, etc.)
  • Burned patients
  • Treatment for AIDS-afflicted patients.



STERIVAN MED is a medical equipment that creates a sterile laminar flow environment in correspondence with a hospital bed. STERIVAN MED is dedicated not only to traditional hospitals, but also to field hospitals, shelter facilities for the elderly, emergency home care, as it is perfectly transportable. Unlike built-in sterile rooms, which are “rigid systems” requiring high investments, controls, and heavy maintenance, our single-bed LAF system ensures high flexibility and reversibility of use. Produced for DPBR by the prestigious Bram-Cor SPA (Parma, Italy), a company specialized in the production of machinery for the pharmaceutical industry, STERIVAN MED, with a solid cGMP construction, respects the strictest regulations*. STERIVAN MED does not rest only on four pivoting wheels that allow rapid movement; it also has an automatic pneumatic system for raising the central unit which reduces its size.

STERIVAN MED consists of a central body, with an attached control unit, and a laminar flow hood that acts as a ceiling, with overhanging overhang. Thanks to its small size, STERIVAN MED passes through standard doors. Once in closed position it can be easily moved through any door or lift.
When installed, STERIVAN® is set into operation position thanks to the vertical lifting device, pressing the up and down push buttons. The upper roof is set into his horizontal position by soft hydraulic pistons. To switch on the equipment, just turn on the airflow generator. The control of all working parameters and of the alarms is given through a visual electronic display and acoustic signals.

Equipped with a large range of options and accessories, STERIVAN MED creates a controlled contamination environment on the patient’s bed, thanks to the “shower” effect of the laminar flow. The standard STERIVAN MED model is equipped with a transparent material curtain fireproof plastic (can also be equipped with handling gloves), to further protect the patient.
