Award Winning Innovation and Design is what we do

Our background is steeped in innovation through our Chairman Gio Benedetti who is a serial entrepreneur. He has developed many award winning innovations over his business career including the Wrapmaster cling film & foil dispenser which won the Hotelympia award along with the retail success of the Baco Easy Cut cling film & foil dispenser, which is available in all leading UK supermarkets.

In the first aid market Gio developed the Wallace Cameron Adulto and Bambino first aid kits which were awarded Millennium Product status in 2000 and featured as one of only 1000 UK products in the Millennium Dome, London. The innovative design of the first aid kits led the way in the first aid market place not only in the UK but worldwide with distributors in over 30 countries.
Difficult Intravenous Access and Venipuncture
Innovation is at the heart of all we do in R&D as we aim to continue moving forward in 2023/2024 with further developments in our Airglove Arm technology for difficult intravenous access (DIVA) and venipuncture. The new contemporary design which includes a USB port, x3 LED magnification lamp and multi-voltage (110 -240 volts) has been developed for the worldwide market, leading with the UK & US markets (US Market Access Report).
Peripheral Arterial Disease
The Airglove technology has been further extended with the research & development of Airglove Leg for peripheral arterial disease, led by Dr Philip Stather, Vascular Surgery Consultant, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. We have completed the Airglove Leg cradle design working with Edinburgh Napier University, Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, School of Science and Engineering. The cradle will house the Airglove Leg unit allowing for a stable platform for the patients foot to be placed onto the resting footplate area. The Airglove Arm & Leg products currently fill a market niche to serve a need that has clearly been defined by medical professionals.
The Airglove technology was launched in the UK in June 2018 while exhibiting with WMAHSN as part of their NHS Innovation zone at the NHS Innovation Expo in Manchester. Airglove is now available in over 140 NHS trusts throughout the UK and Ireland who have successfully completed their R&D Airglove trial. You can view our Airglove video and listen to what clinicians have to say https://bit.ly/3kP3aqt.
We have exhibited at Arab Health and Medica Dusseldorf over the past few years and have received great interest in our innovative products with distributors now in Northern & Southern Ireland, Australia, Greece, Switzerland and the UK with over 140 NHS Trusts successfully using Airglove.
