News: Inditherm secures large NHS order


Rotherham company, Inditherm, has secured one of their largest ever UK orders for their innovative patient warming products.

The Manvers firm will provide operating theatre patient warming for the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust.

The project includes more than 25 complete systems to be installed in hospitals at four separate sites across the Trust, giving the capability to meet the needs of the full range of different surgical procedures. Implementation will be completed before the end of the NHS financial year.

AIM-listed Inditherm are the only UK manufacturer of patient warming systems and have developed products using low voltage carbon polymer technology to provide heat.

Last year, The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), the UK government's regulatory authority, issued guidance that supports the use of Inditherm patient warming systems for patients undergoing operations which carry risk of inadvertent hypothermia.

It is estimated that as well as being able to warm many more patients using the Inditherm systems the forward-thinking NHS Trust will realise cost savings of around £300,000 over the next five years. They should also see a substantial environmental advantage from the change in technology, with reduction in the amount of clinical waste created, estimated at well over a tonne per year, and an annual energy saving of more than 25,000 kWh.

Nick Bettles, chief executive of Inditherm, said: "Customers have seen the benefits our product can offer, with improved clinical care, substantially reduced costs and environmental benefits all at the same time.

"The guidance issued by NICE relating to Inditherm patient warming is helping hospitals to make a decision to consider our technology with confidence."
