The CELLAED will go into AED mode as soon as the two pads are pulled out from the back of the phone case – immediately then the relevant country emergency service is subsequently dialed.

As the pads are placed on the victim, the emergency operator is obtaining location details (although they may have this information from the location APP already). The CELLAED then advises both on the screen and in loud audio to either keep hands free as a shock is administered, or it advises to commence CPR and can advise how to do this.

The AED assistance is found to be calming and provides for a heuristic response, thereby alleviating some of the responder trauma anxiety. The CELLAED will enhance these characteristics through superior audio and visual cues.

The “Free Oxygen” Anesthesia Machine

The Pureline® M6000 extracts

medical-grade oxygen from the air and delivers it on demand. With the savings in oxygen tank refills or tank management, the M6000 pays for itself in as little as one year. No larger than standard anesthesia equipment, it comes complete and ready to operate. The M6000 is quiet, elegantly simple to operate, and requires almost no maintenance. While similar machines have been in use in Europe for years, Supera has perfected the technology, added important safety features, and is making this money-saving equipment available to you.

Dario Glucometer

Developed in Israel and assembled in the US

Dario is a warm-colored gadget which includes much more than a regular glucometer

A “lancing device” to provoking a small blood flow (normally a tiny pin) and a dispensing cartridge which holds up to 25 test strips

Thin papers which read the glucose concentration in blood by an enzyme they carry on them

Connects to your smartphone via the audio jack and, once you introduce the test strip into it, the phone displays your results

Non-invasive Blood Glucose Monitor




Technology enables the blood glucose concentration to be measured at the capillary level

GlucoWise™ utilised two unique technologies to achieve unprecedented accuracy in non-invasive glucose measurements. First, utilise high-frequency radio waves around the 65 GHz range. These waves are large enough to allow penetration through the tissue, yet simultaneously small enough to provide sufficient resolution of the blood regions inside the tissue. Second, sensors have integrated nano-composite films which temporarily make the skin transparent to the radio waves when a measurement is initiated

The glucose levels are extracted by a non-invasive technique which transmits low-power radio waves through a section of the human body, such as the area between the thumb and forefinger or the earlobe

This ensures consistent readings across all people independent of age, or skin type and colour


manage glucose through pain-free, non-invasive continuous monitoring

Using a small disposable patch painlessly stuck onto a user’s arm, leg or abdomen, sugarBEAT® measures the body’s glucose levels via the skin






Connected to a small electronic sensor, the sugarBEAT® patch can take a sensor measurement every five minutes from the body’s interstitial fluid, drawn from the skin

Market launch due 2017 in selected countries in Europe, Asia and Middle East



NovioSense is a small and flexible spring like device measuring less than 2 cm in length and 1.5mm in diameter. The whole device is coated with a soft hydrogel layer. The flexible form factor allows the device to bend to conform to the surface of the lower eye lid where the sensor is placed. Utilising state of the art low-power and highly sensitive ASIC technology developed by Fraunhofer IMS together with NovioSense the device can measure minute changes in glucose levels in the tears that are representative of blood glucose levels.

NovioSense is a revolution in non-invasive glucose monitoring utilising wireless data and power to continually monitor glucose levels in tear fluid.

Noninvasive Continuous Glucose Monitoring

Smart Insulin Pen


Sweat Sensors

Digital Plaster

  • A device meant to be embedded in ordinary plaster that includes sensors for monitoring health-related metadata such as blood pressure, temperature and glucose levels.
  • The “digital plaster” contains a Sensium silicon chip, powered by a small battery, which sends data via a smartphone or PDA to a central computer database.
  • If the results show any worrisome signs, patients and doctors alike would be notified of the change in the data patterns. They also plan to add a motion sensor to the device so it could additionally serve in the role of “granny monitor” by detecting things like falls or complete inactivity.




Non-Invasive Vitamin Tracker

Wireless version of the world’s first personal vitamin tracker that indicates your nutrient trend.

Vitastiq has better compatibility with smartphones and tablets. This device is convenient, efficient and allows even higher precision. It is made of titanium, a more durable and lighter material.



Smart Adhesive Bandage


This            smart             adhesive

bandage, recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has a patented breakable capsule that releases a multi-compound therapeutic substance onto the sterile pad. The line of waterproof bandages offers varieties that come with an anticoagulant, an antibiotic, an antifungal, a wart remover or a corn remover. The company, based in Ramat Gan and in New Jersey, manufactures and sells the bandages in the United States

Bio-Weld 1

Unique device to seal surgical incisions using cold plasma gas. Ionized particles in plasma have been shown to weld human tissue in a way that causes little or no scarring,

controls bleeding, enhances tissue repair, disinfects and even kills cancer cells. The product is close to market and will likely be marketed first as an alternative for Cesarean section incisions







Smart WIFI Switch and Plugs for OT Gadgets












Hospital Light bulbs that Disinfect and Kill Bacteria

How it works

The 405nm emitted from Indigo-Clean reflects off of walls and surfaces, penetrating harmful micro-organisms

The light targets naturally occurring molecules called porphyrins that exist inside bacteria. The light is absorbed and the excited molecules produce Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) inside the cell

405nm creates a chemical reaction inside the cell, similar to the effects of bleach

The Reactive Oxygen Species inactivates the bacteria, preventing it from re-populating the space

Smartphone Breathalyzer

World’s first robot that can lift up a human in its arms

RIKEN-TRI Collaboration Center for Human-Interactive Robot Research(RTC), established as a joint collaboration project by RIKEN and Tokai Rubber Industries, Ltd. (TRI), has developed a nursing-care assistant robot named RIBA (Robot for Interactive Body Assistance). RIBA is the first robot that can lift up or set down a real human from or to a bed or wheelchair.

Electronic Underwear Preventing Bed Sores

Developed by Canadian researcher Sean Dukelow of Project SMART, the electric underpants—deliver a small electrical charge every ten minutes. The effect is the same as if the patient was moving on their own—it activates muscles and increases circulation in that area, and effectively eliminates bed sores, thereby saving lives


VETIGEL™ Hemostatic Gel Kit

Gel that stops bleeding in seconds

When directly applied to the source of bleeding, VETIGEL™ rapidly adheres to the wound-site and stops the flow of bleeding by creating a mechanical barrier. This allows the body to build a strong, natural clot without the need for applied pressure. A removal wipe may be applied after use, which disengages the excess hemostatic gel from the newly formed clot for easy removal

Future Medicine

The world’s ageing population and prevalence of chronic diseases have lead to high demand for tele-home healthcare, in which vital-signs monitoring, state-of-art wearable technologies with or without smartphone for remote patient-monitoring and new generation techno-gadgets will be essential in future medical practice
