TriMedika Ltd is ISO 13485 accredited for the design, development, manufacture and distribution of innovative medical devices to hospitals all over the world. Our first device to market is TRITEMP™, a non-contact, medical grade thermometer, available to healthcare professionals, to deliver greater efficiencies that will benefit patients, by reducing infection spread, lowering costs and eliminating plastic waste in hospitals.
What do you do – ie what needs/problems do you meet?
Over 5 years ago whilst working in hospitals, we recognised an opportunity to bring improvements to reduce hospital spend by eliminating single use plastics for routine devices.
Feedback from nurses revealed that disposal of bags of plastic waste from ‘used’ thermometer covers represented a significant infection risk as thousands are used in hospitals every day. Nurses reported finding ‘used’ plastics in patients’ beds, food trays and other hazards such as dementia patients swallowing them, which could be fatal.
We fast tracked this idea to a market ready, CE marked device in 2017 which is now on NHS Frameworks across the UK and used in hospitals and clinics in over 21 countries.
What is unique about it?
As 80% of hospital infections are spread through ‘CONTACT’, the solution was TRITEMP, a medical-grade thermometer that was NON-CONTACT and required no plastic covers which would reduce costs, infection risk and eliminate plastic waste.
