Maquet equips new hybrid OR demo and training facility in Japan with Barco surgical displays

Maquet, a global market leader in surgical medical equipment, recently equipped its brand-new showroom in Kobe, Japan, with Barco MDSC-2124 HD surgical displays. The new state-of-the-art Maquet Academy showcases Maquet's visionary hybrid operating room concept. It is expected to receive over 10,000 visitors - doctors, surgeons, hospital administrators, etc. - per year.

In 1999, Maquet opened its first Maquet Academy at its headquarters in Rastatt, Germany. Today, the Academy features two fully-equipped, hybrid operating rooms. In recent years, new showrooms and training centers have been built around the world to showcase the very latest in surgical equipment technology. The new facility in Kobe, which was inaugurated on 25 March last, is equipped with a full line-up of Maquet products, a fully integrated Philips angiography system and a series of Barco MDSC-2124 surgical displays. In 2011, Maquet agreed to co-market with Barco in Japan.
