We are proud to welcome Oscult

Publishing date: 30 April 2020

We are proud to welcome Oscult in our field medical portfolio. The Oscult is a handheld ultrasound imaging device interfaced with an iPad Pro. It aims to change ultrasound image acquisition and to create new usage of ultrasound imaging. It allows the user to easily capture ultrasound imaging in a non-medical environment and if needed, quickly share and comment on a diagnostic with other doctors.

Its intuitive, ergonomic and compact design makes it easy to use and perfect for application on field missions. Oscult is also the first connected ultrasound system that enables telemedicine and e-training in real-time. The complete applications of this technology include military, veterinary, humanitarian missions, EMS, nursing homes and home care services.

Connected Portable Ultrasound

The Oscult is a handheld ultrasound imaging device interfaced with an iPad Pro. It aims to change ultrasound image acquisition and to create new usage of ultrasound imaging. It allows the user to easily capture ultrasound imaging in a non-medical environment and if needed, quickly share and comment on a diagnostic with other doctors.

Intuitive

Oscult’s intuitive and ergonomic design makes it easy to use. It relies on IPad features that have already become reflex gestures such as sweeping, pinching or double-tapping, which make the settings and adjustments of the scanner the user-friendliest possible.

Compact & Portable

The Oscult can be taken anywhere, any time. It is perfectly suitable for multiple field applications including military, veterinary, humanitarian missions, EMS, nursing homes and home care services. To fit the requirements of field usage, it has an impressive 6-hour battery life while in use.

Connected

Oscult is the first connected ultrasound system enabling real-time sharing of images. This feature can easily be used to get a second opinion or benefit from live e-training with the assistance of a referring practitioner who can advise you and help with settings and measurements.

Welcome to Sense Diagnostics

Publishing date: 6 April 2020

We are thrilled to announce our most recent partnership with Sense Diagnostics, an American company specialised in non-invasive monitoring of the neurological status of a patient at any given time.

Every year, roughly 15 million people will suffer a stroke, of which, about 3 million die due to worsening conditions, delayed treatment, and lack of continuous brain monitoring. At the moment, in order to know if the brain is bleeding between CT/MRI scans, the medical personnel has to rely on multiple 

sources of information such as clinical exams, vital signs, implanted ICP monitors.

The Sense by Sense Diagnostics acts as an adjunct to CT/MRI and can detect active bleeding in the brain and alert medical personnel about worsening brain conditions. The Sense device transmits a low power tailored electro-magnetic (EM) pulse in the RF range across the patient’s brain. By collecting 720 data points every 40 seconds, the Sense detects changes in the signal that may indicate acute bleeding, brain swelling, or blocked blood vessels.

The Sense is intended to be used in the hospitals, but also for EMS. Giving the ability to paramedics to better triage will ensure that every patient having a stroke is taken directly to a comprehensive stroke center.

To learn more about the Sense and its application, please contact us.

The EpiShuttle at the 25th JADM in Kobe, Japan

Publishing date: 13 February 2020

EpiGuard will be presenting their innovative modular single patient isolation system to the Japanese Association of Disaster Medecine this February 20th to 22nd. The theme of the 25th annual meeting of JADM is “Are we OK with Today’s Disaster Medicine!?”. Despite major improvements in the latest decades, the latest outbreak of the coronavirus reminds us that some aspects of our crisis preparedness are still lacking. One of these aspects is the isolation of infectious patients.

The EpiShuttle is an innovative medical isolation and transportation system designed for optimal safety and numerous treatment options during patient loading and transport. The unit is a single patient isolator made of cleanable materials. EpiShuttle can be carried and is compatible with leading ambulance-stretcher undercarriage EMS systems. The EpiShuttle is compatible with most mechanical ventilator circuits. Using negative pressure and P3-filtration, the isolator provides environmental protection from particulate cross-contamination of highly infectious diseases. In positive pressure mode, the isolator protects patients from hazardous environmental agents through the use of CBRN filters. The design allows for full intensive care treatment and emergency procedures, such as intubation and insertion of central venous catheters. The EpiShuttle is designed for safe transportation, multiple uses, easy communication and optimal patient comfort.

The new Coronavirus may be a preview of WHO’s disease X

Preparedness at all levels are necessary – EpiShuttle, the only isolation unit approved for transport on air, sea and road – contributes to safer transport and handling of highly infectious patients.

Oslo— January 15th 2020EpiGuard is a company founded in 2015, based on experiences from the Ebola epidemic in West Africa in 2014. The team of medical specialists from Oslo University Hospital was responsible for treatment and transportation of patients, including an Ebola-patient repatriated to Norway. In the emergency response work on the epidemic, they identified the need for new and improved equipment for transporting patients with high-risk infections. The result was EpiShuttle, developed together with Eker Design, focusing on patient and caregiver safety, patient comfort and improved medical treatment options.

“Our aim is to save the patient and increase protection of healthcare professionals and the environments.” Said Ellen Cathrine Andersen, CEO, EpiGuard

Positive Customer Impact

There are three main benefits of the EpiShuttle:

1. Patient Safety and Care

2. Safety of Health Care Professional

3. Cost and Operational Efficiency

The EpiShuttle is a single-patient isolation and transport system, designed to provide maximum patient safety and comfort while allowing critical care and treatment to be performed. The EpiShuttle can protect the environment from an infected patient or protect a vulnerable patient from a contaminated environment. The protection consists of two elements: A robust and completely sealed barrier between the patient and the surrounding environment, and a pressure difference that will prohibit leakage.  The unique design allows patient monitoring and full intensive care treatment to be performed during transport, including emergency procedures like intubation and insertion of central venous catheters.

With the use of EpiShuttle, the need for disinfection of ambulances, helicopters or airplanes is reduced, and there will be less disruption of service.

For airport preparedness in case of suspicion of passengers arrive with highly infectious disease, the EpiShuttle provides a solution both for temporary isolation, and transport to hospital.

The Epishuttle is sold to several countries in Europe, as well as Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Namibia, and is donated through Norwegian MOH to WHO in Congo and Uganda.

Quote from customer:

“The new opportunity to isolate patients will have a significant impact on the working environment for rescuers, nurses and doctors,” said the head of Health Preparedness Department in Region Midtjylland,

The prehospital department in the region is working closely with the Aarhus University Hospital to develop a competence and education center for handling and transport of patients with infectious diseases such as SARS, MERS, Ebola and pneumonic plague.

“With the new insulation unit [EpiShuttle] we are raising transport safety to an international level. We can ensure that the infection is isolated from the point at which the patient is picked up and until the patient is placed in an isolation room at Aarhus University Hospital,” said Chief Physician in Region Midtjylland
