Solutions for tomorrow joins forces with Kamprad Foundation to support X-ray in elderly care
Three of Solutions for tomorrow’s !M1 mobile X-ray units and three vans to transport them have hit the road in Småland, Sweden. Småland’s Kronoberg, Kalmar and Jönköping regions each now have the ability to bring high quality X-ray imaging to patients when and where they need it. The project was financed by the Kamprad Foundation.
The Kamprad Foundation is a charitable organisation that, among other things, supports medical science with the aim of turning research into real benefits for the many people. In the face of the covid-19 pandemic, the Foundation was looking for a way to help improve quality of care for the elderly. They saw mobile X-ray units as a way to make a real difference and decided to donate three units and vans to Småland.
This project will help protect elderly patients and others who need to minimize the risk of infection. Instead of being admitted to the hospital, they can now be X-rayed at a nursing home or a private residence.
The !M1 was engineered for mobility. It combines an exceptionally compact build with outstanding image quality. Its small size means it can be easily transported in a standard-size van to wherever the patient is. The unit also features a battery developed in-house that charges quickly and outlasts all competing solutions.
Around the world, many healthcare providers have put the !M1’s mobility to use within the hospital. This project marks the first time the !M1 will be used to bring hospital-grade imaging beyond the hospital.
“This is a milestone we’ve been working towards since day one,” says Solutions for tomorrow CEO Mattias Guldstrand. “With the first proof of our vision to take X-ray to patients wherever they are located, we hope to see not just more of our units on the road, but also be part of the change of more decentralized healthcare.”
Solutions for tomorrow is a Swedish med-tech company dedicated to making advanced medical imaging available whenever and wherever patients need it.
The Kamprad Foundation provides 200 million SEK of funding every year to medical and environmental science, as well as research within entrepreneurship. Learn more at: familjenkampradsstiftelse.se
