The modular ECU3 is a collapsible, portable containment unit for temporary isolation during normal facility operation or during a public health emergency. Designed to be a multi-functional containment solution to help organizations maximize their return on investment, the ECU3 combines the proven functionality of the ECU AnteRoom and Ceiling Cavity. In addition to routine wall and ceiling based repair or remodeling, the ECU3 can be used for surge capacity (individual) and mass isolation.

ECU3 – Construction & Maintenance, Lightweight & Portable

The patented ECU3 design and construction makes this lightweight portable solution easy to deploy, move and take-down. One person can deploy the ECU3 in about 15 minutes. The units are both effective and have been designed for easy of use; access points and functionality are built to be convenient and match workflow needs.

  • Improve compliance
  • Reduce liability
  • Improve work site appearance
  • Control the spread of harmful airborne particulates

Multi-purpose cost effective solution

  • CDC, JCAHO compliant
  • Satisfies HRSA Critical Benchmark #2-2
  • One person can set up in approximately 15 minutes
  • Easy access to ceilings and walls
  • Can be used for Mass Isolation and Surge Capacity in mass casualty events
  • Requires minimal storage space
  • Eliminates need for the plastic sheeting and pole-style barrier setup

Surge Capacity

Emergency Anteroom

The ECU3 functions as an easily deployable, emergency anteroom for patient room+ isolation. This allows a healthcare facility to increase the number of individually isolated patients it can treat beyond the existing number of fixed isolation rooms. There are three major benefits of this Surge Capacity solution;

  • ECU3 temporarily increases the number of available isolation capable rooms, avoiding the infinitely greater cost of maintaining a larger number of permanent fixed isolation rooms.
  • ECU3 is a portable solution allowing isolation rooms to be set up wherever it is necessary instead of being tied to specific rooms which may be scattered over different floors and buildings.
  • ECU3 increases logistical flexibility since specific isolation rooms don’t need to be kept empty in anticipation of future need, any room can be converted at any time.
Multi-purpose cost effective solution
  • CDC, JCAHO compliant
  • Satisfies HRSA Critical Benchmark #2-2
  • One person can set up in approximately 15 minutes
  • Can be used for containment during regular maintenance
  • Can be used for Mass Isolation in mass casualty events
  • HRSA funding is available under the Hospital Preparedness Act

+ The ECU3 is intended for patient room isolation and should only be used for OR isolation in case of extreme emergency. The Mintie IcoRoom has been designed to meet the more rigorous clinical use requirements of the OR.

Mass Isolation

Larger Anteroom & Airlock

Two ECU3s and a five foot connector cuff can be used in conjunction with the corridor flange accessory to create a larger anteroom/airlock for mass isolation+. The corridor flange seals the entryway of a hallway or ward and the ECU3 operates as a large negatively pressured anteroom. This prevents direct air exchange between the isolated area and general population without any building modifications. In a mass casualty event;

  • Ability to transfer patients to other facilities is lost/limited due to widespread incidents. The ECU3 can be used to dramatically increase immediate isolation capacity.
  • Isolating patients en masse allows for more efficient patient treatment since Staff only needs to decontaminate at one central access point.
  • The large ECU3 anteroom can be used for efficient decontamination of staff and equipment – it will accommodate the lengthiest gurneys on the market.

  • HRSA funding is available under the Hospital Preparedness Act

+ Mass isolation requires the use of two ECU3 units connected with a 5′ modular cuff, the corridor flange accessory and a negative air machine. Although these can be purchased separately, we recommend the ECU3 bundle for the best value and additional modular cuff sizes.
