Innovators with a vision to improve healthcare delivery
Professor John Anderson recognised the need for delivering defibrillator treatment to patients not only within a hospital environment but also the wider community. This concept led him to develop the worlds first portable defibrillator, designed for use outside of the hospital and is now the equipment we routinely see in public places, used to save thousands of lives worldwide.
As an astute businessman, Professor Anderson, created a number of companies, all providing leading-edge medical products in the areas of defibrillators, body surface mapping, implantable atrial fibrillation and remote vital signs monitoring.
In 2001, Professor Anderson partnered with Professor Jim McLaughlin and Professor Eric McAdams, both accomplished medical engineers, who jointly founded Sensor Technologies and Devices in 2001, later to become Intelesens Ltd.
With its continued links into a number of world-leading research institutes, Intelesens has an established Intellectual Property (IP) and product pipeline of new medtech innovations.
