16 Nov Sky Medical Technology captured the news
Publications around the world have featured Sky Medical Technology articles written by our talented team and partners. Each piece showcases the importance of innovation in healthcare and the widespread interest in the geko™ device.
Trade Arabia is a publication focusing on the latest business news, trends, and developments in the Middle East. In this article, our Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Thelwell explores how the rising rates of long-term health conditions, such as chronic wounds, combined with the increasing average life expectancies are straining healthcare systems. For example, venous leg ulcers are estimated to affect up to three percent of the global adult population. Andrew shares why the geko™ device can help improve costs and patient care.
“This new breed of technology can also provide a permanent treatment to chronic medical conditions, rather than solely maintain a patient’s wellbeing over time.”
Our Chief Technology Officer, Rachel Fallon spoke to Building Better Healthcare, a resource for the healthcare community covering news, views and best practices, with more than 376,000 readers. Rachel outlines the challenges of bringing a MedTech device to market and explains how companies need to balance design and manufacturing with clinical application to ensure they can navigate any regulatory hurdles.
“Companies need to consider issues such as ensuring continuity of supply as well as building a scalable manufacturing capability that can satisfy the needs of a global market.”
Adopting innovation into healthcare systems can be tough. Lorna Green, director of enterprise and growth at Innovation Agency (part of the AHSN Network) discusses these challenges in Digital Health: a digital resource covering independent business and technology news in the NHS and UK healthcare. The Innovation Agency has worked with us to extend the success of the geko™ into more healthcare systems.
“This growing ecosystem of support networks is helping innovation transform how healthcare systems operate by offering faster and simpler solutions to medical technology implementation.”
