We put patient care at the centre of medical innovation and develop devices that make healthcare workers lives easier.

Is there anything you would like to make delegates aware of ahead of the Infection Prevention & Control Conference?
TriMedika designs, develops and manufactures innovative medical devices, using cutting-edge technology to respond to the ever-changing demands of healthcare today. TriMedika focuses on delivering cost savings to hospitals through its innovative products, as well as optimising infection control when measuring temperature.
Thermometers are used on every ward, every day on every patient. Contact thermometers have been linked to incidents of cross-infection in hospitals- Oxford Neuro ICU

Our product, TRITEMP™ provides:

· Optimisation of infection control as it is a professional non-contact device designed for clinical use.

· No need for probe covers or plastic consumables, saving nursing staff time.

· Hospital cost savings of up to five-fold versus traditional contact thermometers.

· Improved patient comfort as temperatures can be read without disturbance.

What do you feel are the key points delegates need to digest when considering a partnership with your organisation?
1. More than half of hospital acquired infections are considered preventable. In fact, research has shown that 1 in 8 COVID-19 infections were acquired in hospital- Carter et al, 2020.
2. Non-contact is your first line of defence against infection spread and the TRITEMP™ offers zero contact with the patient.
3. The TRITEMP™ is already approved for use on NHS/HSC framework agreements.
4. On average we save a 600-bed hospital in the region of £45,000 per year on traditional contact thermometers.
5. The TRITEMP™ offers an accuracy level of +/- 0.2°C on Core Body Temperature.
6. We also offer a unique calibration checker to monitor the accuracy of the TRITEMP™ during the course of the product’s lifetime.
7. The TRITEMP™ is CE marked and manufactured in Europe.
