Are you an Acupuncturist or Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner?
Do you require hand washing facilities for your practice or consultation room?
The Medi-sink is our most popular self-contained hand washing station for Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine professionals. It provides hands free, hot water hand wash capabilities at the point of need, ensuring hand hygiene can be completed safely and effectively when you dont have access to plumbing.
Designed as a practical solution for when plumbing is too expensive and/or impractical, the Medi sink also allows flexibility and convenience for those who are leasing or in heritage buildings.
How does it work?
Water is stored in a sealed container located within the unit. When the sensor is activated, the unit will draw water from the fresh water container, heat it to 40 degrees celsius and give you a 10 second warm water hand wash. The waste water is then stored hygienically in the waste water compartment of the container to be emptied a minimum of once a week, or more frequently as required.
Does it require any plumbing?
No. The Medi-sink is fully self-contained and so it needs no access to mains plumbing. The hand wash unit uses a refillable fresh water and accompanying waste water storage container within the unit to provide up to 50 hand washes per filling of the 10 litre tank. Once the fresh has been used and the waste is full, simply empty the waste water into a suitable drain and flush (toilet or other sink connected to mains), re-fill the fresh water compartment and re-connect the tanks to the unit. It’s that easy.
How do I install the unit?
Generally preferred on looks, price and durability, the Medi-sink also requires no installation and is shipped to your door as a ready to use product. All you have to do is remove the unit from the box and position where desired, fill the tank with fresh tap water and plug the unit into power.
How do I keep it clean?
The Medi-Sink has a simple, self-cleaning cycle that is recommended once a week, or more frequently as required (every other day for high risk medical settings). It was developed by infection control specialists and takes only 10 minutes. You can find more info here.
The Medi-Sink is easy to operate and keep clean, it blends seamlessly into any room and as the Chinese Medicine Board says, if you are in a building with inadequate hand washing facilities then it is "not a suitable building for acupuncture practice".
