Technology & Product(s)
Guide In Medical is developing an external disposable signal source. The signal source is placed upon the patient’s neck and transmitters signal towards the trachea. Video devices which are in the market are capable of detecting the signal, which comes back only from the trachea and not from the esophagus.
The device is an “add on” to intubation video devices which are in the market. The device enables to distinguish the trachea from the esophagus, guide the clinician to the correct position of the trachea fast and accurately.
Guide In Medical’s competitive advantage is the ability to recognize the trachea’s location even in situations of lack or limited visualization, where current intubation devices fail to do so.
