Maquet Moduevo Ceiling Supply Units

An answer to daily challenges

The Maquet Moduevo ceiling supply units range ensure vital utilities and equipment are easily accessible, streamlining workflows and improving efficiency. Simple to implement and use, they enable better organization of resources, increasing productivity – and consequently, decreasing costs.

Setting up the ICU

Over the years, approaches to creating better workflow for the ICU have been developed as medical professionals realized its benefits. As awareness continues to grow, the innovation in this area continues. There are benefits and disadvantages for many ICU set up approaches that you will find in this articles, as well as the most advanced workflow solution.

Improving workflows in the OR

During surgery, every action counts. Healthcare staff want to focus on the patient – not on equipment and utilities. When developing its Maquet Moduevo line of ceiling supply units, Getinge put itself in the shoes of these professionals – and created a highly ergonomic, efficient solution that allows staff to concentrate on the patient and not the device. 

Discover how Maquet Moduevo has improved Aarhus University Hospital (Denmark)’s surgical procedures.

Benefits at a glance

The Maquet Moduevo portfolio help organizations make best possible use of human and other resources. They leverage space to great effect – whether in Operating Rooms or around patient bedsides – and are ideal for storing commonly used items. Therefore, hospital staff are free to focus on the patient, rather than on equipment and utilities.

Enabling effective care

Better workflow improves access to patient's head and neck, which can make a big difference when it comes to many treatments. Besides, a better workflow makes sure sufficient resources and equipment are available.

Icon staff safety

Improving safety and working environment

In a streamlined workflow, electrical cables and medical gas outlets are stowed away instead of routing along the floor, therefore reducing trip hazards and improving ICU hygiene.

Icon patient comfort

Patient comfort and recovery

Improved workflow provides the patients with better mobility. This it reduces adverse effects of immobility and improves patients' psychological well-being, enhancing the patients comfort, which also serves the purpose of realizing faster recovery of patients.

Reduced cost

A well set-up ICU workflow realizes more effective care for the patients, and therefore shortens the patients' stay in ICUs and reduces costs for hospitals.

Deployed in diverse healthcare environments

Including in operating rooms, intensive care units and examination and recovery rooms, Maquet Moduevo simplifies everyday hospital tasks by creating modular, adjustable, exceptionally safe and ergonomic workstations. Additionally, it features a broad choice of components and accessories.

The infusion transfer solution, excels as flexible, effortless, stable and transferable system


M-Shift, the infusion transfer solution from Maquet, excels as flexible, effortless, stable and transferable system. Transferring the patient's complete infusion system will take less than a minute, optimizing the workflow in the critical care environment and liberating nurses from heavy workload.

M-Shift stands for no compromise in IV therapy, even during patient transport.


  • 110 lbs (50 kg) enables maximized equipment accessibility, even for the most critically ill patient.
  • M-Shift also enables full access to the patient's head for emergency access.
  • M-Shift facilitates the task of carrying and transferring pumps instead of manually repositioning them or placing them around bed.


  • Adjustable dual poles for accommodating IV pumps of different sizes.
  • Small footprint for improved elevator access and mobility.
  • Easily adapts to existing ICU or OR beds (Hill-Rom TotalCare; Stryker Zoom; ArjoHuntleigh Enterprise) and MAQUET pendant handles.
  • Transfers IV equipment in seconds with no lifting required.


  • Safe and fast infusion systems transfer with only one person.
  • Saves time, improves user and patient safety while improving efficiencies for staff.
  • IV therapies can be continued throughout patient transfer.

Report by clinical nurse Carmel Zucak

The ICU at Nepean Hospital Department in Penrith, Australia, was equipped with M-Shift  and Modutec ceiling supply units. The unit conducted a three-month study on the changes associated with the M-Shift system, and how those changes affected the amount of nursing time needed for patient transfers. The nurses recorded the data, starting with the time they were told to bring a patient to the CT/MRT.

The mean nursing time taken to prepare infusions for transfer was 32.5 minutes with a range of 4 to 110 minutes. In a simulated environment the time to transfer infusions from the pendant to the bed using the M-Shift could be reduced significantly.

The introduction of M-Shift also eliminated the need to lift heavy pumps, reducing occupational health and safety issues for the hospital.

Nursing staff had positive opinions about the change to M-Shift.

"Higher staff satisfaction with interdepartmental transfer facilitated by M-Shift."
"First positive signs indicate that personnel are very satisfied with the change. No more pumps need to be used, which relieves staff from heavy workloads."

M-Shift Trolley

The reliable partner for an efficient, fast and safe patient transport


The M-Shift system is the reliable partner for an efficient, fast and safe patient transport. With the M-Shift Trolley, these benefits can be taken to areas in the hospital where an ICU bed can't go (e.g. examination rooms).

It accommodates a complete IV set-up when particular ICU beds do not fit the solution. Even without a Maquet Ceiling Supply Unit, M-Shift can now enhance the workflow at the patient side. The M-Shift Trolley enables use of the system's main unit anytime and everywhere.

High loading capacity

  • It can easily carry up to 80 kg (176 lbs).
  • Standard rails for additional accessories or basket to carry multiple power sockets for pumps.
  • Cable management solution.


  • The trolley has 4 multidirectional wheels with 4 independent brakes. The 4th wheel has an additional function to set the direction.
  • Big wheels for smooth driving over obstacles or elevator gaps.
  • Bumpers on the chassis for equipment protection.


  • Height adjustable handle: the handle can be folded away or adjusted to acomfortable position during transport and to fit to different user heights.
  • Shape and size of the base allows the caregiver to walk comfortably with the trolley.

The importance of enhancing the ICU workflow

Intensive Care Unit (ICU), seen as the last frontier for saving patient’s life, should have all resources pulled together yet with the best possible workflow to prepare for effectively responding to worst-case scenarios at all times. Enabling an optimal workflow supports an efficient healing environment for the early mobility of the patient. 


A wealth of options, for a wealth of possibilities
