Patient Room 2020 is a futuristic design concept developed by NXT Health with grant funding from the U.S. Department of Defense. A prototype of the 400-sf patient room has been built in New York at the Corian Design Studio. The prototype features smooth, streamlined surfaces and concealed technology. It features an “open bathroom” concept, which allows flexibility in fitting more caregivers and equipment into the bathroom. The Patient Room 2020 is intended to be prefabricated as pods.
