The companies offer a safe solution for transporting infected patients amid the global pandemic. Spectrum Aeromed will be a distributor of ISOVAC Products’ Containment and Protection System Utilizing Life Support (CAPSULS) Patient Isolation Units (PIUs), which integrate with Spectrum Aeromed's equipment.
ISOVAC Products Founder and President Pete Jenkner said: “The new agreement between ISOVAC Products and Spectrum Aeromed will prove to be advantageous to the air medical community. The two organizations combining their expertise in their respective fields, will allow the end user a one-stop shop for acquiring the best in mission critical isolation and life support modules.”
For nearly 30 years, Spectrum Aeromed has solved the ambulatory needs of air medical and patient crews for hospital programs, multi-mission charters, private operators, and military branches worldwide. Spectrum Aeromed Life Support Modules can be installed and removed within 30 minutes, which cuts down on aircraft retrofit time, allowing flight crews to focus on their lifesaving work. Spectrum Aeromed’s stretchers and transport decks integrate with the simple-to-operate CAPSULS portable PIU. They will fit into most aircraft while providing crew safety and patient comfort. Spectrum Aeromed also provides equipment to assist with patient loading and equipment mounts for ventilators and other critical medical equipment.
ISOVAC Products designs, develops, commercializes, and currently manufactures, products that provide isolation and containment of casualties and remains in order to protect personnel, equipment, and transport assets. These products are designed to mitigate the risks and adverse effects of naturally occurring disease outbreaks and pandemics (e.g. Covid-19, H5N1, SARS, Ebola, etc.), industrial accidents, and natural disasters. ISOVAC Products’ CAPSULS system is a portable PIU that prevents particulate (biological and radiological) cross-contamination between the patient and the external environment, and with features that enable medical intervention to the patient. ISOVAC’s CAPSULS system is also regulated as a class ll medical device by the US Food and Drug Administration. ISOVAC Products has supported federal, state and local governments around the world since inception.
“The collaboration of the two US-based small businesses is vital as it gives customers confidence that they have the equipment they need to accomplish their mission of saving lives safely during this global pandemic,” said Ricky Reno, Spectrum Aeromed’s VP Account Executive.
