DeVilbiss® Healthcare has completed the transitional phase of Sunrise Medical’s organizational restructuring with the creation of separate respiratory and mobility-focused businesses: DeVilbiss Healthcare and Sunrise Medical. The new organization, the introduction of new products and a new leadership team has brought about a new day at DeVilbiss.
Since May of this year, DeVilbiss Healthcare has been solely responsible for the development and sales, marketing and servicing of the company’s broad portfolio of respiratory products including oxygen therapy equipment, pulmonary drug delivery systems and sleep apnea therapy solutions.
“It really is the dawn of an exciting new era at DeVilbiss,” said Kees Regeling, President and CEO of DeVilbiss Healthcare. “In a short period of time, our customers already have experienced the benefits associated with our company’s new autonomy that allows us to be even more responsive to customer needs and market shifts.” Regeling, with 15 years at Sunrise Medical, has served as DeVilbiss Healthcare president since 2006.
“In canvassing the market, we’ve experienced positive feedback from our customers,” noted Irina Fursman, VP of Commercial Operations for DeVilbiss. “Our singular focus allows us to communicate our products benefits with greater clarity and be much more market-driven in providing high-value solutions that meet our customers’ needs.”
DeVilbiss will introduce these products at Medtrade:
The systems are designed to optimize patient adherence with educational materials and a vast array of comfort features such as integrated humidification, an extremely small footprint and whisper-quiet operation – only 26 dBA - now, that’s quiet!
These additions to the DeVilbiss compressor line offer a highly intuitive design that redefines ease-of-use for young patients and adults alike. “We improved upon our DeVilbiss Pulmo-Aide® compact compressor by adding convenience features, while maintaining superior performance and reliability,” Mastin said.
This unit is 34% more compact that traditional 5-liter concentrators. Despite the reduction in size, the unit incorporates field-proven internal components for dependability. It’s noticeably quieter and includes the exclusive DeVilbiss OSD (Oxygen Sensing Device) as a standard feature on all units. The 5 Liter Compact Concentrator is pending 510(k) clearance.
This childhood asthma program is an educational resource for children with asthma and their parents. It will be packaged with the new DeVilbiss PulmoNeb and includes an informational guide, log book, Breathies stickers, a Breathies nebulizer hugger and educational DVD. The associated Website features valuable information, interactive games and more.
