The company holds top level expertise with product development and manufacturing. The medical background ranges from intensive care, infectious diseases, internal medicine, and anesthesiology, through to transport medicine.

Our first product is the EpiShuttle, which was developed by clinical experts with first-hand experience in providing advanced treatment and transportation of patients with highly infectious diseases, including Ebola.
