MDS Cardio will act as a local sales organization for Usono in Poland. The health tech company based at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven has also appointed a first ‘Usono Ambassador’: Professor Jaroslaw Kasprzak from Lodz.
Usono is also continuing its international expansion elsewhere. The first customer in Germany was recruited: the Catholic Krankenhaus Hagen. Usono is also working with Mermaid Medical on sales in 9 countries in Europe. The ProbeFix – one of Usono’s main products – was recently acquired by the University Hospital in Oslo, Ulleväl, and Mermaid is in discussion with hospitals in Spain, Sweden, and the UK. The ProbeFix is used in these countries to monitor the heart of patients hands-free while they are walking on a treadmill, something that is never done in the Netherlands.
Usono now works intensively with various hospitals in the Netherlands that have purchased the product and apply it in practice or for study purposes. The reactions from Deventer, for example, are very positive. Together with the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven, Deventer is conducting a study to demonstrate that RSI complaints in shoulder and arm are reduced because the ProbeFix holds the probe in place and therefore the doctor has their hand free.
