Experts gather for FEES masterclass

DP Medical Uncategorized Leave a comment

DP Medical is supporting an innovative masterclass that will see Speech and Language Therapists (SLT) gather together to learn more about the Fibreoptic Endoscopic of Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES).

 

The training event, being organised by the adult SLT department at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, will concentrate on excellence in practice and include the anatomy and physiology viewed on flexible nasendoscopy, indication/contraindication and safety, how to do the FEES examination well, and practical scoring and interpretation practice.

 

DP Medical has recently provided the stroke unit at the hospital with a XION EndoCompact and is supporting the event sponsoring the refreshments and supplying some equipment for the hands on element of the course.

 

Alafiya Sachak, a speech and language therapist at Royal Berkshire Hospital, said: “It is so important to really understand the theory and practicalities of conducting a complex assessment such as FEES; and having the right background knowledge is empirical.

 

“We are fortunate to have been able to organise an expert like Annette Kelly to provide us with the knowledge and expertise on this subject through this very exciting one-day FEES course. We will have a great mix of professionals on the course including Speech and Language Therapists from other trusts, ENT doctors, and stroke consultants.”

 

The FEES course, presented by Annette Kelly, will take place on Monday 20 November 2017 and is a great introduction for those new to FEES, as well as a wonderful CPD opportunity for those already using FEES.

 

As places will be limited, book your place on the course soon, please email: alafiya.sachak@royalberkshire.nhs.uk  or call 0118 3225205 for further information.

In our latest blog, commercial director, Owen Pemberton, explains how DP Medical has been involved in a pioneering training day for NHS staff.

 

We were honoured to be invited to an important training day for experts who work in the difficult area of forensic assessment for non-acute child sexual abuse.

 

The event at St Georges Hospital in LondonOwen Pemberton - DP Medical had been organised by Dr Peter Green and Dr Alice Monfinoli, who both work at St Georges, and involved a multi-agency approach with representatives from other NHS trusts and the Metropolitan Police service.

 

We were invited to demonstrate our MediScan HD and Vico HD colposcope equipment, plus our MediScan Compact system and the newly launched Mobile ODT EVA system so delegates could see at first hand the equipment that is available to assist in the examination of patients and the collection of evidence in these cases.

 

It was a very successful event that allowed the experts in this field to share expertise and best practice. It also enabled us to give attendees a clear idea of how recent technological advances can help them with their vital work.

 


Showcase success for DP Medical

In our latest blog, DP Medical’s commercial director Owen Pemberton, looks back at a successful BDIA Dental Showcase.

 

“The BDIA Dental Showcase, this year held at the NEC in Birmingham, is one of the highlights of our events calendar and this year proved to be no different. In fact, we are delighted to report that it was our best ever as we made a record number of sales.

 

“As the largest dental show in the UK, thousands of delegates attend to discover the very latest dental innovations across an unrivalled selection of exhibitor stands. Attracting more than 12,000 members of the dental profession and industry each year, BDIA Dental Showcase is where manufacturers, suppliers and distributors choose to unveil the very latest developments in their field – all under one roof. Visitors are able to enjoy personalised product demonstrations, snap up unbeatable showcase deals, watch highly eng

aging lecture sessions and top up their CPD in the process.

 

“It’s a fantastic event to be part of and one that we entered into this time with a shift in focus as we recently made the decision to no longer provide loupes as part of our product range. Instead we are concentrating on the very latest in dental microscope technology.

 

“As our founder, Doug Pitman, highlighted earlier this year it had become increasingly clear that the need for advanced systems such as Global microscopes is now superseding the more basic forms of magnification. The advancement of microscopes with their enhanced design, affordability, first class quality and the service and support available, has been widely accepted by dental leaders both here in the UK and internationally.

“The BDIA Showcase was the first real test of this change in direction for us as we went purely to demonstrate our A-series Global microscope range and it was very pleasing to get some really positive feedback combined with strong sales. It was incredibly reassuring for us to do so well as it reaffirmed our decision to provide our customers with microscopes which is where we believe the future of advanced dentistry magnification now lies. And the demand for the products is obviously there.

 

“Darren Young, our UK dental business manager, and his team are spearheading our activity in this area so watch this space as we continue to develop our presence in the dental market.”

Further growth for DP Medical

Here at DP Medical we are extremely proud of our world-leading technology. But to make sure we maintain our high standards, we need to provide the best technical support to go with it. It’s for that reason that we’re extremely happy to announce the appointment of Michael Bearpark as our new northern engineer. In our latest blog, Michael tells us about his military background and how he is bringing those skills to our team.

 

Michael said: “Before starting at DP Medical I served in the Royal Navy. My naval journey began in May 2010 and I worked up to the role of leading engineering technician during my time there. This included leading a team of engineers to complete maintenance, diagnosis and defect repair of all of the equipment within the communication system.

 

“As the northern engineer here at DP Medical it is my responsibility to complete preventative and reactive maintenance as well as installations to all sites within the northern areas, including Scotland and North Wales. One of my favourite parts of the job is travelling around across the north to different places and having the chance to meet a wide variety of new people. I also love contending with the range of challenges I come across daily. You never know exactly what the next part of your job is going to ask of you, which is very exciting.

 

“I enjoy the responsibility I have been given to plan my work and communicate with different people. As well as this I have enjoyed meeting the rest of the DP Medical team over the last few months. I have been welcomed in and I feel very happy to be part of the team here.

 

“I’m looking forward to continuing to progress within my new role in the future, as I meet new clients and build professional relationships with a huge variety of people across the areas I cover. I am also keen to continue to improve my knowledge on a range of equipment by completing training with the different manufacturers that we work with. Learning from them is an invaluable part of the job and it allows me to perform my duties better.”


DP Medical continue busy month of technology showcases

DP Medical will round out a busy month of trade show appearances with the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapy (RCSLT) and British Laryngological Association’s (BLA) annual conferences this week.

 

The leading healthcare medical supplier will be in the exhibition hall at both conferences and welcomes all delegates to visit them and attend their product demonstrations.

 

The RCSLT Conference 2017 takes place at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow from 27-28 September and will showcase the latest innovations and research in speech and language therapy.

DP Medical will be exhibiting the XION EndoStrobe, EndoCompact and EndoPortable.

 

The BLA Conference will be held a day later on 29 September at the Royal Society of Medicine in London and will cover laryngological issues that affect the extremes of age. XION products will once again be showcased – with the 3D EndoStrobe and EndoCompact on display this time.

 

These events come after a busy month for DP Medical and its partners. XION attended the second annual ENT Masterclass Europe – the largest free ENT training platform in Europe for senior ENT surgical trainees and consultants – in Berlin from 1-2 September and demonstrated the 3D EndoStrobe as well as other endoscopic systems on their own stand.

As well as this, Xoran Technologies LLC, who recently chose DP Medical to be their distributor for UK & Eire, attended the prestigious American Academy of Otolaryngology’s – Head and Neck Surgery’s (AAO-HNSF) annual meeting in Chicago from 10-13 September.

 

They exhibited equipment such as the industry-leading compact and portable xCAT and MiniCAT IQ CT Scanners, which are the specific products that DP Medical are now distributing.

 

Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical, said: “This has been a really exciting time for the DP Medical team as we particularly enjoy the chance to get out and meet professionals in the medical industry and to demonstrate our world-class products. We have superb partnerships with our suppliers across the industry and showcasing their state-of-the-art equipment is always an exciting venture.

 

“If you’re attending either the RCSLT or BLA conferences then come and pay us a visit and see the cutting edge products we have to display.”


DP Medical welcomes Mark to the team

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

The cutting edge technology we supply means we need the best technical support to go along with it. That is why we are delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Grant as our new southern service engineer. In our latest blog, Mark tells us about his life-long interest in technology and how happy he is to be putting this to good use in the DP Medical family.

 

“My previous role was with NCR Ltd where I worked as an electro mechanical technician for 17 years.  My job involved fixing ATM machines, EPOS systems and self scanning devices such as the self-service tills in supermarkets that people use every day.

 

“My role of southern engineer here at DP Medical is quite varied. I can do everything from the installation of medical hardware and commissioning, to arranging and carrying out servicing for existing customers’ hardware. On top of all of this I spend my days responding to breakdowns. I cover the entire south of England so a large part of my role is driving, however the satisfaction of successfully carrying out a repair is a great feeling and it really does make it all worth it.

 

“That is what I like best about my role – having the ability to fix what’s broken. It gives me great pleasure to be able to see a problem and solve it. I have always been very inquisitive and interested in learning about electronics and how things work. This new role is ideal for me in that sense as it allows me to broaden my knowledge of new technology and the cutting-edge equipment supplied by this company. I found meeting customers very daunting at the start and it was tricky finding exactly where I needed to go to provide support. I’m definitely getting there though and since my appointment  I’ve found it’s never too hard to find a hospital!

 

“I like DP Medical as it really has a family type of atmosphere, which is often lost in bigger companies. You feel part of the team here and know you can always get the help you need if you’re stuck or turn to somebody and ask questions.

 

“I have manufacturer training coming up soon and it is always great to learn from the people that make the equipment. You can really get hands on there and ask all the questions you have. It’s especially important to get answers to even the most technical ones.

 

“I’m glad to be part of the team and it’s great to feel as if I am making a positive difference to the service team.”


Xoran set to showcase world-leading technologies

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

DP Medical’s supplier, Xoran Technologies, will be demonstrating its products at the prestigious American Academy of Otolaryngology’s – Head and Neck Surgery’s (AAO-HNSF) annual meeting in Chicago this month.

 

The AAO-HNSF, which represents ear, nose, throat, head and neck physicians and surgeons across the USA, is holding its annual meeting from 10-13 September 2017 and Xoran Technologies LLC, who recently named DP Medical as a distributor for UK & Eire, will be there.

 

Xoran, who will be at Booth 729, will have equipment for demonstration and would welcome a visit by any UK delegates who are planning a visit.

 

Earlier this year, DP Medical was announced as distributors specifically for Xoran’s industry-leading compact and portable xCAT and MiniCAT IQ CT Scanners,

 

Renowned for delivering high resolution, low dose imaging of the sinuses, temporal bones and skull base, the mobile, self-shielded xCAT scanner is ideal for use in theatres, whereas the MiniCATIQ – with its compact design – enables the user to perform CT scans at the patient’s point-of-care, within an office environment.

 

The deal marks a step forward for DP Medical, into the ENT operating room market.

 

Commenting on the agreement recently, Owen Pemberton – commercial sales director at DP Medical, said: “This is a very exciting development for our organisation and cements our position as a market leader when it comes to ENT surgical procedures.

 

“The Xoran scanners fit perfectly within our portfolio of high-quality, state-of-the-art ENT products. They’re very versatile and have great mobility, as well as being very user-friendly.

“We’re confident the scanners will prove popular with the UK market, which currently has extended waiting periods for patients requiring scans. Users can get superior image quality in a faster period of time, with very low radiation levels, benefiting both the patient and the professional.”

 

Dr. David Sarment, President of Xoran Technologies LLC, said: “We selected DP Medical through a United States export process which unveiled to us a dedicated and very focused company with significant experience in distributing high-end medical equipment.

 

“Our companies are a great match as our unique scanners complement DP Medical’s existing range of high-end devices and is able to meet many of their customers’ ENT requirements – both in offices and operating rooms.

 

“Over the last 15 years we’ve installed more than 600 CT scanners domestically and internationally and, through our partnership with DP Medical, we hope to continue to grow our level of success and establish the brand in the UK and Ireland.”

 

 

 


DP Medical looks to the future

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

Leading healthcare medical supplier, DP Medical Systems, has announced plans to shift its attention in the dental magnification market to focus on the latest microscope technology.

 

Douglas Pitman, managing director of DP Medical Systems, said: “The dental microscope market has been developing fast over the last few years and we are proud to have been on that journey as suppliers of the new Global A series microscope which we feel represents the very latest in dental microscope technology.

 

“Throughout this time, we have also provided quality loupes and lights to thousands of dentists. However, it has become clear that the need for advanced systems such as Global microscopes is now superseding the more basic forms of magnification and, therefore, we have taken thDouglas Pitman - DP Medicale decision to no longer provide loupes as part of our product range.

 

“We appreciate this may be disappointing news for some of our loyal customers but the advancement of microscopes with their enhanced design, affordability, first class quality and the service and support available, has been widely accepted by dental leaders both here in the UK and internationally.

 

“Along with other experts in the field, we consider the Global A series to be the natural choice moving forward. With improved diagnosis, treatment and predictability, the microscope offers far superior magnification and significantly enhances operator posture. We strongly believe that this is where the future of advanced dentistry magnification now lies and, as such, Darren Young, our UK dental business manager, and his team will be spearheading our activity in this area. Darren has over 12 years’ experience and brings a wealth of specialist knowledge and expertise in this developing market.”

 

Jeff Metcalf, international sales manager at Global Surgical Corporation (GSC), said: “Dentists are increasingly opting to use higher magnification to diagnose and treat their patients. This global trend can be traced to greater awareness of the numerous benefits of the microscope and, as a leading dental microscope manufacturer, we have witnessed this change first hand.

 

“International demand for dental operating microscopes is fuelling the continued growth of GSC and this success can be attributed to our steadfast commitment to customer satisfaction and the uncompromising quality of the products. We have formed partnerships with local distributors all over the world, such as DP Medical in the UK, to maintain a close connection with customers. DP Medical’s outstanding work has propelled GSC to the number one selling dental operating microscope in the UK and we are looking forward to an exciting future together.”

 

Dr Julian Webber BDS MS, specialist endodontist from the Harley Street Centre for Endodontics in London, said: “The dental operating microscope and the enhanced magnification it offers, represents probably the single greatest advantage in clinical endodontics in the last 25 years. As a dedicated user of Global Microscopes I have reached the conclusion that in the changing world of dentistry, all specialities would benefit from this technology and the improvements it will bring to surgical restorative and periodontal outcomes for the benefit of all our patients.”

 

Surgitel will continue to supply Loupes to UK customers through a new distributor.

 


Egypt calls for DP Medical

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

A leading UK healthcare supplies firm has been selected by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to provide state-of-the-art forensic examination equipment in Egypt.

 

DP Medical Systems, based in Surrey, has now installed its MediScan software and HD video Colposcope in both Cairo and Alexandria to further develop the ability to record and document sexual assault and abuse in the North African country.

 

MediScan, developed by DP Medical, provides clinicians with a secure pathway for recording, storing and encrypting patient gynaecology examinations for analysis and archiving. The still images and video are captured in real-time and stored against the patient record for retrieval anywhere in the hospital.

 

The Video Colposcope is an advanced high resolution video camera with integrated high intensity LED illumination. The equipment provides a compact stand-alone solution for true video and still images in the forensic gynaecological field.

 

Yomna Abou Hussein, Programme Assistant at UNODC, said: “UNODC is working on a project which aims to improve the criminal justice response to cases of violence against women in Egypt. We therefore work with governmental authorities that are involved in the criminal justice system such as the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Justice, the Prosecution and the Egyptian Forensic Medicine Authority (FMA).

 

“We have worked with FMA on establishing a specialised clinic within the authority specialised in receiving female victims of violence due to the importance of forensic evidence in these types of cases. Currently there is one clinic in Cairo and another in the FMA’s premises in Alexandria and each has one colposcope and MediScan software. The equipment has been very helpful to the FMA given its advanced technology that will enable the forensic practitioners to effectively collect evidence which would be later presented during the judicial process and will surely play a key role in the proceedings.

“The installation of the equipment from DP Medical went smoothly and we are looking forward to deploying another colposcope for a new clinic that will be established in a different city in Egypt soon.”

 

Rob Hampson, from DP Medical, who travelled over to Egypt to complete both the install and staff training, said: “We were honoured to be selected by UNODC to supply our MediScan software and HD Video Colposcope to locations in Cairo and Alexandria. This is the culmination of many months of work so it is fantastic for everyone involved for the equipment to be up and running as it means this innovative technology can now be used to help those that need it. The staff were very welcoming and attentive to all aspects of the Mediscan training which, I hope will benefit many.

 

“The business development and outreach of the MediScan software outside of the UK is growing, we hope that the successful conclusion of this project will lead to further opportunities for DP Medical.  This is the second install on the African continent in two years, and with more foreign FME clinicians being trained in the UK each year using MediScan, I am sure that our installs abroad will be on the rise. We are already discussing future project with UNODC and hope that our relationship with them will continue to grow.”
