Product overview

For decades, Weinmann Emergency has been developing medical equipment for emergency medicine such as ventilators, defibrillators, oxygen systems, portable suction machines, etc. The company employs about 230 employees worldwide who work in close cooperation with professionals from emergency medical services, hospitals, and military medical corps to understand the needs of users and patients. Their products are designed to ensure the best possible patient outcome in case of a rescue operation, an accident, a disaster, or an in-hospital emergency.

N-iX team has been collaborating with the IT department of Weinmann Emergency on MEDUCORE Standard², a defibrillator with monitoring functions. This is a portable device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart and helps restore the heartbeat of a patient. It has an intuitive user interface and loads the necessary presettings, depending on the age of the patient (infants, children, adults). The device allows medical professionals to easily switch between AED and manual modes. Moreover, it measures the SpO2 level and non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP) of the patient.
