Huntleigh Healthcare awarded Queen’s Award for Innovation

As a proud member of the Arjo family, we have been committed to supporting healthcare professionals in improving outcomes and enhancing patient wellbeing since 1979. We do this through our proven solutions for Vascular Assessment & Treatment and Fetal & Patient Monitoring. With innovation and customer satisfaction as our guiding principles, we strive for clinical excellence and improved performance, for life.

The Cardiff based company has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Innovation in recognition for their new range of Digital Handheld Dopplers.  This award identifies where state of the art design combines with the highest levels of quality and performance. Designed to perform when you need it most, the new Dopplers offer reliability that clinicians can depend on, making their jobs easier, safer and more efficient.

Innovative features in the new products help clinicians to make quicker and more accurate assessments providing benefits to both user and patient. Peter Cashin Managing Director spoke of how good design can improve patient care and clinical effectiveness “features we have introduced such as the high resolution colour display represent a first for handheld Dopplers. This allows clinicians to clearly see vascular waveforms as well as hear digital audio sounds. In the Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) version the FHR data is displayed in high visibility large numbers and recorded digitally as a waveform for archiving and review ”

The Cardiff facility provides a Global Centre of Excellence for a range of Arjo and Huntleigh products. Employing more than 60 engineering staff the centre provides a stable platform for further innovations in the future.

Joacim Lindhoff, President & CEO of Arjo AB commented “ we are both honoured and proud of this recognition. This marks a significant achievement for our team in Cardiff and confirms that we are developing innovative products that offer our customers an excellent experience, through both performance, functional benefits and a desirable design.
