Part of the Ember Rayne's Medical Bay, these are patient beds suitable for every stage of treatment from diagnosis to recovery.
About this creation
The Ember Rayne's medical bay is available to handle the everyday medical needs of the crew and is equipped for emergency use as well. The most prominent feature of the medical bay are these high tech medical beds, or med-beds, for short. More than just simple cots, they are laced with sophisticated diagnostic and monitoring equipment and lie under high resolution medical scanners, making them among the most important pieces of medical equipment used by the Ember Rayne's medical staff.
Shown here from a mini-figure eye view, you can see everything the med-beds have to offer. Lining the back wall are small tables for medical personnel to set equipment and a small sink for keeping clean. Behind each bed are diagnostic displays and controls. On the ceiling above each bed, between standard light fixtures, are the medical scanners. The beds themselves are raised for easy access by doctors and nurses, and themselves have some monitoring displays and controls. Between every two beds (there are four in the standard medical bay) there is a central terminal, for accessing patient records and monitoring status.
From above, the spacing between beds is more apparent. There is plenty of room to wheel in additional equipment and for medical staff to move around.
This is the main medical scanner, which can make high resolution images of any of the patient's systems, replacing the need for separate diagnostic machines such as x-rays, CAT scans, and other equipment. The scanner is also capable of projecting several types of fields and energy types, including stasis fields, medical lasers, vita-rays, electro-magnetic fields, sonic waves and other futuristic treatments I've never heard of. The design is similar to those I have seen in many other people's creations - too many to properly credit, unfortunately.
Finally, I have removed one of the med-meds for a closer look. Its simple shape is inspired by the sick bays of many space operas, but mainly Star Trek. Each bed has two panels with medical readouts.
