Guy Frak, VP international sales at Sensible Medical, explained, “This gadget is non invasive and very helpful in scanning the lungs for fluid assessments using a patented technology called REDS. Currently, hospitals in Italy, Brazil, US, Russia, Turkey and India are using it to pick up early lung damage in COVID-19 patients within a matter of 45 seconds.”

Washable, breathable, next generation casts for your fractured limbs

One of the worst ordeals when nursing a fracture has always been lack of ventilation and piling dirt and sweat in a cast that triggered uncontrolled itching.

Not anymore. FLexiOH, a next- generation orthopaedic immobiliser, on display, at Arab Health, not only possesses the rigidity to hold the fractured part but also ensures proper skin ventilation.

Made from a biocompatible foam, the cast turns into a hardened polymer that allows your fractured limb to be safely ensconced even while it’s hollowed spaces allow ventilation of the fractured limb. It is the world’s first washable cast and also does not interfere with imaging the limb.
