Webinar: Innovative Israeli health-tech in the Covid-19 crisis
May 20 14:00 CET
In view of the global COVID-19 pandemic crisis, which created enormous stress on the health systems worldwide, there was a global need for urgent development and production of ventilation systems for severe Corona patients that need respiratory support.
MDSG, a small Israeli startup company from Rehovot, volunteered to try and build emergency ventilation solutions in minimal time, focussing on reliability and on the medical needs of Corona patients. All would be based on local manufacturing for large scale production, so that if needed an emergency solution would be available in time.
Two representatives of MDSG, Naama Weintraub and Dr. Benny Rousso, will talk about the clinical need at the beginning of the crisis and now, how they managed to make all these steps in just a few weeks, based on innovative ideas, the Israeli way of “thinking outside of the box” and a strong volunteering spirit.
