San Diego Blood Bank Takes Delivery of Their Fifth La Boit Bloodmobile
September 1, 2017 | 0
We would like to thank San Diego Blood Bank for their purchase of bloodmobile number five from La Boit Specialty Vehicles! For this vehicle, called the “Omni 10,” San Diego Blood Bank took extra time to work with our CAD specialists to lay out a unique interior for their needs. They are very proud of the result, calling it “carefully designed to maximize space and provide blood donors with an overall positive clinical experience.”
To help celebrate the OMNI10, San Diego Blood Bank wrote an article about the vehicle’s features and build process, titled “It’s All in the Details: The Making of OMNI 10.” Read a bit from the article below.
We don’t always take the time to notice the small details around us, but with the San Diego Blood Bank’s brand new Omni 10 bloodmobile on its way, that may change. We currently have nine bloodmobiles but the Omni 10 is unique and novel in its space and design.
New and improved features of this bloodmobile include the placement of two Trima machines for platelet donations, upgraded technology, and a modern and clinical design. With the Omni 10 being ten inches taller and 6 inches wider than a typical bloodmobile, blood donors will have an even more comfortable donation experience. Staff will have more room to attend to patients while completing procedures and paperwork.
Inside the new Omni 10, 12 – 14 people can be accommodated and now with extra space, walking and moving inside the bloodmobile is easier. The customization of each piece of furniture and appliance was constructed for maximum efficiency. Now, donor chairs are narrower yet still spacious enough for diverse sizes and weights. Donor chairs across from one another are in an offset position and this allows for more space around blood donors. Another space saver is the way each door closes. These bi-folding doors open halfway like closet doors.
La Boit is proud to be a part of their team and to have them as part of our family. Thank you, San Diego Blood Bank, for what you do for your community and the surrounding areas!
