Airglove Arm – Difficult Intravenous Access and Venipuncture (DIVA)
Innovation is at the heart of all we do in R&D as we aim to continue moving forward in 2024/25 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)

Airglove Leg – Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
The Airglove technology has been further extended with the research & development of Airglove Leg for peripheral arterial disease (PAD), 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.

AIRGLOVE

Airglove is a patient warming system developed to enable access to the veins in a patients arm for the delivery of intravenous drugs. It gently heats the patients arm up as it forces warm air through a single use double walled polythene glove in just 3 minutes.
