Siemens said Wednesday that it is teaming up with Toutenkamion Group to create mobile intensive care units that hospitals can use in situations like the coronavirus pandemic.

The German engineering giant and the French industrial mobility company are building an agile container-system that can be used to expand hospital infrastructure if needed.

The product came up amid the coronavirus pandemic when hospitals needed solutions for contagious patients such as increasing the number of intensive care beds, Siemens said.

Toutenkamion Group designs the units, while Siemens provides the technology inside.

Every intensive care unit, which has independent power and medical-gases supplies, includes five rooms, a nurses' station, a pharmacy, a technical office, an equipment storage and a cleaning area.
