Protecting hospitals from overburdening

Dear Sir or Madam,

Since the beginning of the corona pandemic, we aim to protect hospitals from overburdening through patients with severe courses of the disease. Public protective measures thus cannot be postponed until the first ICUs are full. Decision makers could rather profit from a tool that calculates the future resource need of hospitals using current infection figures. Learn more in our interview.

Stay healthy!

But by now, autonomous medical devices are being developed to support an increasing number of fields and applications.

While hygiene practices in hospitals and medical offices are essential, the industry can also make an important contribution with hygienic product design.
