The geko™ T-2 device is a unique and intricate piece of wearable technology that has transformed the care available to patients—in both hospital and home care settings—who suffer from thrombosis or other associated conditions that are a result of poor blood circulation in the body. The geko™ T-2 device has secured National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance recommending its use for patients who have a high risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) and for whom pharmacological and other mechanical methods of VTE prophylaxis are impractical or contraindicated. The product is currently in use in hospitals all over the world, including in the UK, Canada, USA and Turkey. Recognised for its excellence in innovation, design quality and functionality, the geko ™ T-2 has won a variety of industry awards including the Good Design Award 2015.

Moyo Fetal Heart Rate Monitor - Laerdal Global Health (LGH)

Product Design - Medical

- Gold

Easy to use fetal heart rate monitor that quickly and reliably detects fetal heart rate. Moyo is an affordable fetal heart rate monitor designed for intermittant and prolonged monitoring in low-resource settings. With a 9-crystal sensor, Moyo picks up fetal heart rate in a wide area and detects rate in less than 5 seconds. Moyo enables birth attendants to make appropriate obstetric interventions and eases the workload without interrupting existing routines. To increase reliability of the detected heart rate, Moyo also measures maternal heart rate. Moyo is lightweight and portable so the mother can wear and move freely. Moyo gives a visible and audible alarm for the health worker and/or mother when fetal heart rate is not normal.
