Medical technology innovations from 75 UK companies on display at Medica 2011
9 November 2011
The Association of British Healthcare Industries is once again
organising the UK Pavilion at MEDICA (Hall 16 Stand G10-3), housing 75
of the UK’s most innovative med-tech companies.
These companies make an important contribution to the UK economy, and to securing the reputation of the UK as a centre of design and manufacturing excellence. MEDICA is a great opportunity to showcase the high quality medical devices that UK companies produce to a global audience, and to enable small companies with innovative products to reach out to overseas buyers.
UK Business Ambassador Professor the Lord Darzi of Denham said: “The UK’s track record in fostering innovation is world class. Britain has an enviable tradition of innovation — as evidenced by 85 Nobel Prizes in science and technology alone. This is largely a result of the quality of our universities and our research base, but it’s also a result of a business environment that encourages innovation to flourish.
“The UK is the number one gateway to Europe and one of the top three countries for inward investment in the world. It benefits from local and global connectivity which creates networks to accelerate business development and commercial success. The UK has a world class science and research base, second only to the USA in terms of output.”
This year ABHI International has launched a new website ABHI UK Pavilion [www.abhiukpavilion.org] to promote UK medical technology manufacturers to the world. Paul Benton, Director of ABHI Exhibitions, said, “Through this portal UK companies will enjoy a vastly enhanced online visibility to potential buyers, distributors, clinicians, and anyone else with an interest in the UK medical technology industry from across the globe. Visitors to MEDICA can visit the site and find a substantial amount information on UK companies and products.”
Medical training aids
Veteran MEDICA exhibitors Adam,Rouilly (Hall 16 Stand G20-2) supply a comprehensive range of medical training aids from Anatomical Models and skeletons to Clinical Skills Simulators and Anatomical Charts. Adam,Rouilly continually improves its existing products in response to customers’ needs and the evolvement and changes taking place in medical education.
Following extensive market research, the AR251 Venepuncture and Infusion Arm has been improved utilising improved manufacturing techniques and materials to offer an even more like life training scenario. Cast from life the moulding of the Infusion Arm Trainer incorporates new features with an improved vein system and silicone skin resulting in an extremely realistic finish which shows a well developed male left arm in fine details.
Sales and Marketing Manager Tariq Shahab said, “this improved arm has been well received by customers especially as we offer both white and black skin tones which successfully broaden our customer base. Customers also particularly like the closed blood system which is clean and easy to use and reduced the risk of leakage. Adam,Rouilly has attended MEDICA for the last 25 years and is now a regular exhibitor on the ABHI UK Pavilion finding it an excellent platform for meeting distributors from around the world.”
For 30 years Malem Medical (Hall 16 Stand G20-1) have been manufacturing the world’s best and largest range of Enuresis Alarms and Vibrating Watches for the treatment and permanent cure of Nocturnal as well as Diurnal Enuresis. Malem Enuresis Alarms (bedwetting alarms) are designed to maximize success in the treatment and cure of bedwetting and provide a safe, efficient, economical and permanent cure for bedwetting.
Owner Dr Hilal Malem said, “Our world famous Enuresis Alarms offer the only safe, reliable, tried and test method for the treatment and permanent cure of bedwetting at an economical cost. Drugs, in the form of antidiuretic hormone, if they work at all, provide a temporary reduction in the quantity and frequency of bedwetting as long as the child is receiving the drug. This could be for years at a vast monthly cost that can be twice the cost of one of our enuresis alarms.
“With our latest Universal Wireless alarm you can use up to seven transmitters, each one of them can be attached to a different sensor (such as Enuresis body worn Sensor; Bed-Mat Enuresis Sensor; Pressure-Mat; and Pressure Release Mat) to help detect patient movement and prevent dangerous falling or unauthorised wondering. One small battery operated receiver that can be carried by the carer will communicate with up to seven Transmitters. This Universal wireless product is ideal for nursing/care homes, or for use at home.”
