DP Medical at the cutting edge!

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

We spend a lot of our time on the road attending important industry events and meeting customers old and new to showcase the very best of what DP Medical has to offer. And this month has been no exception! Here, in our latest blog, Rob Hampson, our medical division’s Northern England & Scotland Area Manager, gives us an insight into his recent visit to the British Laryngological Association’s (BLA) Cutting Edge Conference 2019 in Edinburgh.

 

The BLA Cutting Edge Conference is always one of the highlights of our events calendar and it was fantastic that this year it was taking place at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh which is such a historic and iconic venue.

 

We attend every year as it’s always a very successful meeting and gives us a great opportunity to meet new and current customers. It’s one of the only events where you can find Speech & Language Therapists and ENT Consultants all in one place!

 

Talking Laryngology

 

But why is Laryngology so important? The specialism continues to grow as the most exciting branch of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck surgery. Best possible speaking, eating and breathing are so fundamental to the aspirations of people everywhere, that there has never been a greater demand for laryngologists.

 

The Cutting Edge Conference provides a forum for the international laryngology community to come together and discuss all the latest innovations and developments.

 

To advance the cause of those with breathing problems, the conference presented the finest breakthrough science, techniques and stunning new paradigms in airway stenosis. For those with speech problems, in-office pathways to rapidly return people to the lives they wish to lead were offered, as well as an in-depth look at the latest developments in spasmodic dysphonia care. For those with swallowing problems, the conference offered technology and working practices that can restore them to society.

 

Product showcase

 

It was amazing to be part of a really well set event and we had various XION systems on show to demonstrate how our products can help clinicians and patients alike. This included our Endostrob EL system which can be used for Video Endoscopies and also Stroboscopy examination, along with our Endostrob PL system which comes complete with XION’s HD video scope. Both provide exceptional image quality and the feedback so far has been excellent.

 

We always enjoy the chance to get out and meet professionals in the medical industry and to demonstrate our world-class products and the BLA Cutting Edge Conference was no different. Thanks BLA, see you next year!

Reflecting the increasing amount of work being undertaken in the Irish market, this is the first time DP Medical has had a dedicated member of staff overseeing operations in Ireland but it is hoped the new role will enhance both the service offered to Irish customers and also develop further new business opportunities.

Thomas Cryan said: “I am really pleased to be joining the DP Medical team which I can already see is a very well organised and professional organisation. The company provides top quality medical equipment and has a real enthusiasm for providing the highest levels of customer care.

“The appointment of Thomas allows us to have a dedicated member of our team covering both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to help ensure we are providing the best possible service to our Irish customers base but also to seek out further opportunities so we can continue to grow and develop as a business.

Dentistry Show goes Global!

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

The British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show is being held on the 17th and 18th of May at the NEC in Birmingham, and is always one of the highlights of our events calendar. And this year is certainly no different! However, the 2019 show will be extra special for us, as joining us to exhibit will be Jeff Metcalf, International Sales Manager for our dental partner Global Surgical Corporation. Here, in our latest guest blog, Jeff gives us an insight into his role with American-based Global Surgical, how the company works with DP Medical here in the UK, and why he is looking forward to attending the Dentistry Show so much.

 

I have been with Global Surgical Corporation (Global) for 16 years.  As International Sales Manager, I am responsible for all sales outside of the United States. I manage a large worldwide network of distributors, independent manufacturer representatives, and Regional Sales Managers.  I really love my job, because I get to meet many people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Global makes fantastic products that I truly believe in.  We also have exceptional customer service, which is emphasised throughout the whole organisation from the top down.

 

Design for dentists

 

Global microscopes are specifically designed for dentists. We have the widest field of view on the market, bar none. This allows dentists to see a full-mouth view, which is very helpful in many aspects of dentistry. All of our microscopes are modular in design, so you can start with a basic microscope and add components at any time in the future. The accessories we make today work on the microscopes we manufactured 25 years ago.  Our microscopes are equipped with a 100,000 Lux LED lightsource, which comes with an unheard-of three-year warranty.  All of our cameras are externally mounted so you can always change to the latest technology without having to go through extensive costs to replace internal cameras. This is truly a lifetime product, compared to products that you have to replace to upgrade to the latest technology available. In addition to the great features of the microscope, we only partner with distributors who offer great customer service, as so many companies disappear after the initial sale. Owning a Global product means support is just a phone call away.  It doesn’t matter how old your microscope is, we will support you like it was bought yesterday.

 

Successful partnerships

 

DP Medical Systems (DP) is one of our oldest partners. They have been extremely successful, because they have the same philosophy as Global. Customer service is their priority and they sell quality products at fair prices. Their service department has been factory-trained and they do everything including installations, maintenance, and service.  DP representatives can solve any concern that the customer might have. I wish all my partners were like DP, who consistently rank in the top tier of performance for Global’s worldwide distributors.

 

Customer feedback

 

I am looking forward to attending the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show because it gives me the opportunity to meet with current and future customers.  Listening and responding to customer feedback and requests fuelled Global’s success. It also gives me the opportunity to work closely with our partners at DP, and observe the obstacles and opportunities they face.   It also allows me to share trends that I see outside of the UK. If you’re attending the event, please come and see us at stand J94.

Nasendoscopy Training Course Success

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

In our latest guest blog, Suzanne Slade and Fiona Robinson; Speech and Language Therapists and Voice/Swallow Specialists, speak to us about the new flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) training course and how DP Medical equipment supports the delivery of this important work. 

 

We set up Speech, Voice and Swallow Associates Training in 2017. Having worked as speech and language therapists in a busy ENT/Head and Neck department for many years, we wanted to share our specialist knowledge and provide clinical skills training to other therapists.

We have valuable links collaborations with medical imaging companies. DP Medical have offered us first-rate technical and professional support throughout this time, which has enabled us to deliver excellent endoscopy skills training to people in the profession.

 

Back in the early 2000s, we developed our own nasendoscopy skills. Since that time, the use of nasendoscopy by speech and language therapists has become well recognised as an invaluable tool in the assessment of voice and swallow function.

 

Our nasendoscopy skills training is offered in various settings. It can be tailored to meet the requirements of a team and delivered within their department, or therapists can come along to Nottingham for our FEES training programme, which takes place over an intensive five-day period. Either way, therapists enrolled on the course need to be enabled to progress their nasendoscopy capabilities using high quality imaging systems.

 

Our aim is to provide exceptional training in which therapists feel fully supported in building their confidence and skill in nasendoscopy. DP Medical has supplied equipment to aid the learning process, which involves small group work, simulations with a head mannequin and manipulating a nasendoscope with confidence. Being able to record examinations, store and retrieve data easily are all requirements which DP have supported us with, and it’s been brilliant to establish a collaboration with them.

 

For more information about the next courses running in Cardiff, London and Birmingham in June, please email: sales@dpmedicalsys.com

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

DP Medical has supported an innovative masterclass that saw Speech and Language Therapists (SLT) from across Ireland gather to learn more about the Fibreoptic Endoscopic of Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES).
