This year, following the COVID-19 outbreak, the award organisers were keen to celebrate those companies that are committed to creating innovations that revolutionise their sectors and make a real difference in the battle against the pandemic.
We are proud to share Sky Medical Technology has been recognised by the International Life Sciences Awards as the Most Innovative Med Tech Company 2020.
Shaping the future of healthcare
As the global healthcare system tackles an unparalleled crisis, we have partnered with clinicians across the NHS and private medical institutes to ensure our geko™ device helps address a variety of chronic medical conditions, including prevention of life-threatening blood clots. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the geko™ device was purchased for the NHS Nightingale hospitals and used in other NHS hospitals as part of wider clinical response to help tackle blood clotting caused by the virus.
Commenting on the award win, our founder and CEO, Bernard Ross, said: “It is wonderful to be recognised for innovation, through the impact that our OnPulse™ technology is having in the treatment of a range of medical conditions. As we continue to face down this health crisis, it is essential that those across the health and life sciences sector turn to innovation to overcome these challenges.
“We aim to be innovative in every area of our business from our product, the geko™ device, to our manufacturing processes, to our route to market via global distributors and our partnership with clinicians across the globe. We’d like to thank the International Life Sciences Award for recognising our innovative work in the sector.”
