SHANNON, IRELAND / ACCESSWIRE / September 26, 2022 / Employees from Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, manufactured and donated three uniquely mobile video game station stands to the Childrens' Ark Ward at the University Hospital Limerick (UHL).

PlayStation* video game consoles and accompanying monitors have been fitted to stands constructed by colleagues at Panametrics.

"Thinking about how we could make life better for children getting medical treatment in the Ark Ward, we came up with something we knew would brighten their day - PlayStation* consoles," said Dave King, manufacturing systems specialist at Panametrics. "However, we also knew that many of the children are limited to their hospital beds, so we needed to bring the PlayStation* consoles to them. Panametrics donated the aluminum, wheels and brackets we used to manufacture the mobile stands, plus the monitors. Meanwhile, our colleagues in Shannon donated three PlayStation consoles and a countless number of games. We're glad we are able to help keep patients entertained in difficult circumstances."

"Thank you to Dave and all the team at Panametrics for their generosity and their innovative approach," said Deirdre Twohig, Clinical Nurse Manager 1 at the UHL. "The mobile video game stations make a big difference to the quality of life for many of the children on the Ark Ward."

With a major manufacturing facility based in Shannon, Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, is a global energy company that specializes in developing measurement technology used in gas, moisture and flow applications.
