Fall 2018 has been a busy time for KwickScreen, with trips to Austin TX for the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo, Boston MA for the New England Society for Healthcare Materials Management, Phoenix AZ for Healthcare Design Expo & Conference and Dusseldorf, Germany for MEDICA. Starting lots of conversations and projects which are already underway.
Our HCD Expo Highlight
Everybody’s highlight from Healthcare Design Expo & Conference in Phoenix AZ earlier this month was Ingrid Fetell Lee's keynote speech on the Aesthetics of Joy. We've brought it back to the London HQ and have written a blog to spread the word about it!
Ingrid Fetell Lee is a designer and founder of The Aesthetics of Joy, her speech shared the extensive research of joy, and its applications within healthcare design. For our team, Ingrid’s speech was the most captivating and relevant towards our development as manufacturers of interior products. Ingrid describes starting the exploration of joy with asking strangers: What brings you joy? Collating answers like sunsets, sandcastles on beaches, candles on birthday cakes and rose gardens. Discovering that though the feeling of joy is ephemeral, we can access it through physical things.

Launch of the Duo
The Duo is the newest addition to the KwickScreen family. It is the total privacy solution, combining the flexibility and lightness of the Air with the portability of the Pro. The screens individually pull out up to 10ft, enabling you to corner off spaces instantly. It creates an L-shape to fit around a bed or obstruction, or stretches to a full 20ft length.
We love sharing your stories, especially when we have helped solve some of your spaces problems. If you haven’t already, why not read Jennifer Calzada talking about the evolution of Tulane University’s simulation training courses.
