O-SI™ was born from ideas developed by designers and doctors focused on developing a modular platform that would provide health care services to the population, in a modern, safe and agile way, based on the use of cutting edge technologies and current concepts of healthcare with mobility, sustainable reuse and social inclusion. Thus, O-SI™ is designed to be a mobile clinic, capable of moving to where people in need of medical support are, with its internal space prepared to carry out diagnosis, testing and vaccination.
The current situation arising from the Covid-19 pandemic was a determining factor for the development of O-SI™, presenting itself as an extremely fast and economical solution. It has a safe and sanitized environment, with the capacity to transport all the necessary equipment to meet the demands in the fight against the coronavirus, such as tests and vaccines. In addition, the wide mobility power that the platform has, its wide reach and the ability to quickly deploy, allow O-SI™ units to access locations where users who need medical care and vaccination are located, thus preventing them from traveling to the locations with greater exposure to the virus, protecting patients and health professionals.
The Immediate Health Bus (O-SI™) is a primary healthcare equipment, modular and mobile, of fast implementation and long range. The project foresees the re-use of up to 4.800 urban vehicles recently decommissioned from São Paulos’s bus fleet, and the adaptation of its internal spaces for clinical use with focus on telemedicine, allowing a bigger flexibility and lower operational costs.
