Can Proximie bring safer surgery to the wider world? How is Getinge answering call for ventilators?
In this week’s podcast senior executives from Getinge and Proximie – two very different sized companies – explain how the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated their business.
In the opening keynote conversation, Eric Honroth, president, Getinge North America, explained how the company more than doubled its production of ventilators in 2020. He also discusses recent FDA clearances for two lines of critical devices.
In our closing keynote, Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram, CEO and founder of Proximie, says the start-up reached its 2023-24 projected size in just a few months as hospitals and medical device companies sought the ability to collect surgeons to the outside world.
Dr. Hachach-Haram, a reconstructive surgeon, gives a detailed account of how a growing shortage of surgeons convinced her to start a technology company.
She also shares how the technology ultimately restored the life of someone very close to her.
