Medical manufacturer wins two Africa Healthcare awards

Diamedica is no stranger to winning awards. The designer/manufacturer of anaesthesia and respiratory solutions has scooped many prizes over the years, but was delighted to win two awards at the recent Africa Healthcare Summit in London.


Of the six awards given at the summit, Diamedica received both The International Innovation of the Year and The Solution of the Year.
It was Diamedica’s Helix Portable Ventilators that caught the judge’s eye – and for good reason.
Their design builds on earlier ventilators made by the company and includes similar gas efficient techniques identified in the peer reviewed AAGBI journal, Anaesthesia.

Feedback from customers plus continuous assessment, testing, research and development has resulted in a ventilator that has become the first choice for humanitarian responders in disaster situations, while it is also ideally suited for use in hospitals in low resource settings.
