Combat Medics require fast, effective airway suction on the battlefield.
The incumbent device (Suction Easy) is unsuitable for the purpose intended and has a number of functional issues that may render it useless in extreme heat or humidity for example.
We have developed a novel, robust and effective prototype (TRL 3) in conjunction with Veteran Combat Medics.
It is the same size and weight of the incumbent, but is effective to the highest ISO 10079 international standard for airway suction.
It is made from high strength, renewably sourced materials and has built in ‘redundancy’ to allow fitment to other items in the combat medic’s kit.
We are currently looking for partners to develop the device for use in Ukraine.
