    Prior to the commissioning of the Phase I redevelopment of Glasgow Royal Infirmary, the need for the development of a new type of resuscitation trolley had been identified by a liaison group consisting of medical, nursing and scientific staff which had been set up to collaborate on the selection and specification of clinical equipment. A design study involving the liaison group and the Product Design Section of the Glasgow School of Art was, therefore, undertaken. This resulted in a basic design which was built in prototype form by the Department of Clinical Physics and Bioengineering for hospital trials. The unit was later taken over commercially.
