26 August, 2013

Sony Australia and Lamboo Mobile Medical recently announced that they have formed a strategic partnership to design, engineer, manufacture and deliver mobile and modular healthcare solutions in Australia and New Zealand.

The Sony Lamboo partnership will primarily focus on building vehicles that provide mobile preventive treatments (including mammography, TB and diabetic), mobile specialised treatments (including MRI, PET/CT, surgery, CT and Cath-Lab) and full mobile disaster management (including complete mobile hospitals).

A core part of Sony Australia's operations for many years has included the design and manufacture of high-end trucks and production vehicles from their Custom Solutions and Systems Division's (CSSD) facility in Newcastle, NSW.

This significant manufacturing and engineering knowledge, combined with the expertise in Sony's Medical Division and the new strategic partnership with Lamboo, is now focused on developing turnkey solutions for the mobile medical truck industry.

Lamboo, a global leader in the engineering and manufacturing of mobile and modular healthcare solutions, is the only company worldwide that has been certified by all of the large OEM medical suppliers including GE, Philips, Siemens, Toshiba and Hologic. This certification gives Sony Lamboo's customers the additional option and flexibility of selecting their medical equipment of choice for use in any of the mobile medical vehicles the company builds.

Sony's CSSD facility in Newcastle also provides a complete end to end construction and delivery process and full project management for all aspects of the mobile medical trucks including design, procurement, installation, commissioning and operational training.

"Our strategic partnership with Lamboo in Australia and New Zealand is another example of Sony's continued commitment to the medical industry," Brad Albeck, Healthcare Solutions Business Manager, Sony Australia Professional Solutions Division, said.

"The partnership is a very good fit with our healthcare strategy and enables us to provide our customers with reliable, high quality, leading edge mobile healthcare solutions."
