Airway Innovations was founded in 2016 to address the unmet needs of respiratory clinicians. The leading product is TubeTrac™ an advanced endotracheal tube holder that provides superior pull force resistance to prevent unplanned extubations. The patented design makes TubeTrac the only device available that clips to the tube connector, transferring pull force to the patient’s head.

Surgeons bring mobile devices into the surgical field for two main reasons: to capture media used for educating other surgeons and residents and use mobile medical applications. Using these non-sterile devices presents a significant infection risk to patients; however, thanks to SteriDev, LLC, a medical device company, and Quantum Medical Concepts, development of CleanCase, a sterile case for mobile devices, will soon become a reality.

CleanCase by SteriDev is an advanced solution that will allow surgeons to safely use mobile devices in the surgical field. It is built on a combination of established operating room techniques and novel technologies that uses a disposable sleeve through which the device is passed. Once the mobile device is secured in the device-specific case, the sleeve is discarded, and the case is closed and ready to use.

A new medical device that will improve the way families treat infant jaundice is one step closer to market, thanks to a partnership between TheraB Medical Products Inc. and Quantum Medical Concepts.

TheraB developed the SnugLit Portable Phototherapy Blanket, a wearable swaddle that treats newborn jaundice. Jaundice is caused by a high level of pigment in the blood called bilirubin, which causes the skin to look yellow. A newborn baby's still-developing liver may not yet be able to remove this bilirubin from the blood. TheraB’s swaddle provides the blue light needed to help the newborn break down the bilirubin molecules as the liver develops.
