4x4 Off-Road Clinics - ORCs
The MATC 4×4 Off Road Clinics are designed to be small and robust enough to travel across most terrains but large enough to provide a flexible clinic area for the treatment of patients suffering from a wide range of health issues. Easy to drive and maintain these units are in use in Eritrea supporting medical “outreach” programs requiring hundreds of km of unpaved road travel. The clinics can be configured for various medical services such as Vaccinations, Paediatrics, Dialysis, Dental, Optical, Minor Surgery or General Practice.
The ORC is based on the rugged IVECO Daily 4×4 Chassis which provides excellent ground clearance and is easily maintained. Although specifically designed and built for challenging road conditions in most countries only a standard driving licence required, and the medical team could drive the unit.
The Air-Conditioned clinical areas are designed with a wipe down surfaces to support easy sterilisation and have sink unit with hot and cold water to allow cleaning between patients. Adjustable medical lighting, examination bed, a medical workbench and a pharmacy refrigerator are usually standard.
IVECO has an extensive worldwide network of manufacturer-approved servicing companies. MATC also supplies a 2-year spares kit including filters, brakes and lights to support in house servicing to ensure that the ORCs stay on the road as much as possible.
Off Road Capability Overview
The latest IVECO Daily 4×4 chassis selected for the ORC provides a true all-terrain capability and is supplied with an off-road gear box, off-road tyres, and other dedicated off-road features.
For a vehicle of this type the ORC has exceptional ground clearance and can traverse the roughest of terrain if driven correctly. Engine and chassis protection shields are standard, and a spare tyre is under the rear of the chassis.
The ORC design has had a series of off-road trials and has performed remarkably well. Even with the completed clinic fully populated the units can go off-road safely and comfortably.
A wide range of medical equipment can be supplied including Diagnostic Sets, ECG Machines, Wall Mounted LED Examination Lights, Electric Examination couches and specialist examination devices.
Clinics can be designed as general practice or as specialist units including dental, optical, ultrasound and dialysis. MATC will also supply empty units, or fit customer furnished if preferred.
In conjunction with specific and specialist customer guidance and collaboration the ORCs can also be equipped with medical testing equipment and purposed as medical laboratories.
The ORCs all have an external mains input connection but are also equipped with an onboard 5kVA Diesel Generator in an acoustically isolated locker to supply power for all on board equipment.
The internal waste and freshwater tanks have a limited capacity so MATC supplies large aqua-roll tanks in case access to water is restricted. These are transported inside the clinic.

MATC are a responsive, flexible contractor. They enabled us to support the demands of our end user customer through program reviews, training, and product acceptance events. At all stages we were kept informed on progress with regular project updates provided for the duration of the contract. MATC displayed excellent programme and risk management procedures throughout which kept this complex project on track.
The motive for purchasing the Mobile Air Traffic Control Tower was to provide all airports in Lithuania with a quick deployment back up ATC capability within SWIM enabled features by using common fibre links that have been installed at all Lithuanian international airports. Mobile ATC Systems were flexible so we (Oro Navigacija) were able to use in house facilities to integrate the MATC Cabin to meet our needs; this has worked very well for us.
Mobile ATC Systems Ltd helped us to carry out a complex shipment requirement from the manufacturer with a professional approach and good communications. Everything was done in a timely manner and there were no issues with the services we received. We would be happy to engage with Mobile ATC for future service needs.
MATC delivered three ORCs to UNICEF for outreach primary healthcare in Eritrea. Colin Chapman delivered end user training in Asmara to the Health Ministry and UNICEF personnel. Geoffrey Acaye, Chief of Child Survival and Development said “Thank you too for being so supportive in this phase of the project. We will certainly reach out to you for any further support whenever required. I am confident that this initial phase will stimulate the interest of the Government and donors to expand further”.

The ORC is based on an IVECO Daily 4×4 Chassis which can be usually be driven by a driver with a standard licence. Shorter than most commercial motorhomes the ORC is 6.33m Long and 3.35m High.
Designed specifically for off-road work the ORC has a solid load-bearing chassis and high-performance suspension to provide exceptional road clearance. The 3-litre hi-torque engine and multiple differential locks provide plenty of power for handling most terrains.
The MATC ORCs are designed to provide a safe, sterile clinical area suitable for various medical disciplines. The consulting area is sufficiently large to provide room for 2 medical practitioners, a patient and a chaperone if required but can be equipped to suit various applications. An awning allows a waiting area to be set up undercover outside of the vehicle.
