KwickScreen is a versatile retractable screen that creates a temporary partition for hospital wards, helping infection control and improving patient privacy and dignity.
It has been specifically designed for the healthcare environment and for use between hospital beds in a ward situation. They can be used as physical barriers between beds, helping infection control and still giving clinical staff visibility of the patient, or as privacy and dignity screens.
The product has been sold into more than 30 NHS trusts and is being exported to Europe, the Americas and the Middle East.
Amongst its many achievements, Kwickscreen has been voted one of Britain's 50 New Radicals by the Observer and NESTA, and its founder, Michael Korn, was voted Young Entrepreneur of the Year by Shell Livewire.
