NeedleSmart is market leading, patented needle destruction technology engineered in the UK. NeedleSmart devices heat hypodermic needles to over 1,300°C before compressing them into a ball. It takes just a fraction of a second to convert a sharp needle into a sterile sphere of metal. Heating the needle to an excess of 1,300°C means all potential harmful pathogens, viruses and bacteria adhering to the needle will be killed. Compressing the needle also significantly reduces the needle footprint leading to a minimum of 50% increase in needle count per sharps bin.
Challenges in Oncology MDTMs - NAVIFY Tumor Board
MDTMs are a central part of the cancer pathway but are becoming increasingly resource-intensive and face many challenges.In your trust these meetings might currently be face to face, held weekly in meeting rooms. Chairing, attending and managing MDTMs may become increasingly challenging: the pressure of excessive case-loads, lack of time to discuss patients and an increase in costs, may result in insufficient attendance at your MDTM and an inability to securely access appropriate data. Patient information is not always available to the MDTM, resulting in a delay in or poor decision-making.

Mental health conditions such as anxiety disorders or panic attacks can now be self-recorded at the time of the event, in the context and sequence in which they occur in a non-verbal way using our new Grasp device.Grasp is the size of a small pebble, is soft and easily compressible, contains miniaturized sensors, time-recording circuits, secure memory, long-life rechargeable batteries and is low-power Bluetooth-enabled.Alerts can also automatically generate an intervention to provide context to the event. Event data is presented as a series of graphs which can show either a single event or trends over time.
The O2COMFORT flowmeter offers an innovative answer to oxygen therapy. This device can deliver oxygen in a traditional, continuous manner, but it also contains a comfort mode in which a dose of oxygen is only administered upon inhalation. The comfort settings 1 to 5 give an equivalent therapy of 1 to 5 litres per minute of continuous flow. The flowmeter offers additional advantages over the traditional flowmeter. When in comfort mode, the oxygen delivery follows the natural breath rate of the patient. In this way the O2COMFORT flowmeter increases the wellbeing of the patient while reducing the waste of medical oxygen.
