General description

  The  Mobile Surgical Unit  can be used for both minor and major surgeries, for example caesarean sections, orthopaedic procedures and many other surgical procedures. The Mobile Surgical Unit  consists of a 40ft standard shipping container on a trailer for maximum mobility. The 40ft container is transformed into a medical facility with very robust characteristics.

The surgical unit contains:

  •  an operation room
  • a pre- and post- operation room
  • a storage/ sterilization room
  • medical equipment
  • consumables
  • medicines for surgical procedures


  A Mobile Surgical Unit  is a high quality medical product that allows the medical provider to perform surgical care in disaster areas, conflict areas and hard to reach areas. Since the Mobile Surgical Trailer is mobile it can be driven directly to the desired location. Surgical procedures can start within hours after arrival on site, due to its plug and play set-up. The Mobile Surgical Trailer  allows the medical provider to move health services, which creates maximum usability of health infrastructural investments in situations of abrupt health need or when health needs are fluctuating.  


  All necessary technical installations are delivered with the Mobile Surgical Unit, like an internal water purification system, water storage and energy supply through a generator. The generator is connected and secured on the front of the trailer. The Mobile Surgical Unit  is fitted with medical equipment and consumables for a complete medical solution. Enak developed a basic list of medicines and equipment to perform 2000 general surgeries. The configuration of the Mobile Surgical Unit can be adjusted to fit local needs. Specific equipment or consumables can be arranged upon customers request. For more details see technical specs.
