Innovation is at the heart of all we do in research and design as we aim to continue moving forward in 2021 with further developments in our latest innovation Airglove with a new contemporary design and 110 voltage model for the US market (US Market Access Report), plus a new innovative epidural fixation device. These products currently fill a market niche or fulfill a current need in medical procedures by improving an existing technology or the development of a device to serve a need that has clearly been defined by medical professionals.

We launched the eagerly awaited Airglove in the UK in June 2018 while exhibiting with the West Midands AHSN as part of their NHS Innovation zone at the NHS Innovation Expo in Manchester. Airglove is a unique warming system developed to enable access to hard, damaged or hidden veins in a patients arm for the delivery of intravenous drugs. We have exhibited at Arab Health and Medica Dusseldorf over the past few years and have received great interest in our innovative products with distributors now in UK, Northern Ireland, Australia, Greece and Switzerland. We now have many NHS Trusts successfully using Airglove in Oncology, Haematology, Infusion, Apheresis, Radiology, Nuclear Science, Medical Physics and PET scanning.
Innovation is at the heart of all we do in research and design as we aim to continue moving forward in 2021 with further developments in our award-winning innovation Airglove with a new look contemporary design which will be 110-240 voltage. The Airglove V2 model has been developed for the US and worldwide market and will also be available for the leg for patients with PAD (peripheral arterial disease). The aim is to try and improve the circulation naturally as pre-surgery conditioning includes exercise which is very hard for these patients to do. Therefore the clinicians we are working with believe that an alternative method of naturally improving the blood supply to the legs is required. Airglove as a heat therapy (a limb warming device) would have several advantages in patients with PAD mainly being a non-invasive medical therapy of PAD and CLI for use in the home and hospital. The design of the double walled foot glove has no air touching the leg and can be used with patients with open leg sores.
Airglove is an international patented and trademarked innovation in the UK, US, Canada, EU, Australia, Egypt and China with many more pending
