Arrow Medical has provided product development, production engineering, assembly and distribution support to Medical Devices Technology International for the new Physio-Master, a self-inflating precision foot cushion designed to reduce the risks of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Physio-Master helps patients to replicate the action of walking, to benefit blood circulation and aids rehabilitation of lower limb circulatory problems, such as lymphoedema and swollen ankles.
Arrow uses a number of techniques to produce the Physio-Master including, multi-layer fabric assembly, sewing, heat sealing and high precision radio frequency welding.
The multi-layer fabric construction (with a cellular polymer core) allows quick deflation, making it easy to store and pack, while manual inflation is avoided so patients with respiratory problems can use the device freely and hygienically.
MDTI chief executive, Martin Levermore, said: "I am pleased to acknowledge the help we got from Medilink West Midlands and the Manufacturing Advisory Service (West Midlands) to help us find the right UK manufacturing partner for this project. All our expectations have been fulfilled and we will now be working hard to capitalise on the good reception we have received from the medical market place."
