Maquet Variop in hospital

Maquet Variop

Well-designed rooms can do more than enhance workflows and efficiency. They can create an atmosphere that improves the overall wellbeing of patients, families, and staff.

Maquet Variop is a modular room system developed to help staff do what they do best in areas with high hygienic requirements. The system is just one example of the patient-focused solutions that make Getinge a leader in healthcare.

A flexible system for sensitive areas

Rooms with high technology density must be configured to respond to changing trends. Maquet Variop supports efficient workflows and improved ergonomics to ensure smooth working procedures in sensitive areas.
Based on our experience and your individual needs the combination of various products forms a supportive working environment.



An investment in a future-proof healthcare facility

Healthcare is changing rapidly. Infrastructure must be designed with growth and adaptation in mind. Modular room systems are the key to a cost-effective facility that accommodates change.

The Maquet Variop modular room system flexibly adapts to your requirements – today and tomorrow. The modular design includes a wide range of options and interchangeable elements that enable you to easily build or remodel your space to accommodate your facility’s needs.


Each room is manufactured to meet individual customer needs for remodeling or new construction. Removable wall and ceiling elements add future-proof flexibility for service, maintenance, or modernization.

With Maquet Variop, hospitals can easily modernize existing rooms to accommodate new technologies or infection control strategies. Whether your hospital needs to expand the CSSD, or add a Hybrid OR to the surgical suite, Maquet Variop allows rooms to be quickly and cost effectively retrofitted to meet new requirements.

Creating a healing environment for patients and staff

An attractive design does more than just look pretty. Several studies have proven that the working environment indeed has an impact on both efficiency and mood.

Incorporating appealing colors, motifs, and design elements can create a pleasant environment that alleviates tension. Working in a pleasant atmosphere make patients, doctors, and nursing staff feel more comfortable while reducing stress factors.

A hygienic solution that meets your specific needs

The Maquet Variop system is the perfect base for a hygienic environment. The elements are sealed down to the substructure, feature smooth powder-coated surfaces, stainless steel wall elements, and flush integration of built-in elements to support the disinfection process.

The powder-coated stainless steel elements are designed to form an easy-to-clean surface with few joints. This has a positive impact on the prevention of cross-contamination.
