Prevas and Ambu have jointly won the Swedish Embedded Award 2016 in the “Enterprise” category.
This is the eighth time that Prevas has been nominated for the Swedish Embedded Award and the fourth time Prevas has won the award.
Saving lives with technology
Ambu have developed next generation wireless training manikins powered by Prevas technology. The new Ambu® Man Advanced ALS takes CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation) training to the next level with a range of wireless manikins, incorporating improved electronics and built-in software provided by Prevas.
Death from sudden cardiac arrest accounts for about 15% of all deaths in Western countries. A substantial amount of lives can be saved if more people are familiar with CPR, and the use of training manikins is a key to achieving this goal.
“As one of Scandinavia’s leading medical & training equipment suppliers, it’s a great honour to have the technology and innovation inside the new AmbuMan recognized by winning such a prestigious award,” says Fabian Sachs, Senior Corporate Product Manager at Ambu.
Christian Ward from Prevas and Torben Gravenhorst from Ambu.
“Winning the Swedish Embedded Award 2016 is a testament to the hard work and close collaboration between Ambu and ourselves,” says Prevas Senior Project Manager Christian Ward. “The new range of wireless manikins are built on a robust hardware & software platform that deliver a unique and easy to use feature set that can be easily expanded with software upgrades well into the future. We utilized the latest mobile technologies running Prevas Industrial Linux (PIL) to create a powerful platform to run the Web App control and user interfaces. Indeed, the Web App browser interface enables training sessions to be controlled from any modern browser, without the need to download a dedicated app.”
This year's competition was a bit special because Prevas had two nominees for the final round of the prestigious award. The second nominated contribution was from Prevas and ChromoGenics, and is a product for dynamic windows providing sun control when needed - also a very interesting solution and product.
