“Following the success of the Adult SCRAM® we received strong demand from the medical community for a Paediatric version of SCRAM®. This presented different challenges because one needs to take into account the broader size range of equipment required to cover the paediatric body size spectrum, ranging from around 3kg at birth to 50kg at adolescence, and at the same time have an optimal ergonomic design that improves task utilisation of equipment.
We used the same philosophy and principles of the successful, Adult SCRAM®, took advice from paediatric pre-hospital, anaesthetic and critical care consultants and tailored the product to the specific requirements of paediatric airway management.”
“As the only organisation set up to work specifically with NHS Scotland on commercialisation activity, SHIL are delighted to have supported the extension of the SCRAM® portfolio. The Paediatric SCRAM® line combines the medical knowledge of front line health professionals, the commercial and project management expertise of SHIL and the capabilities of manufacturing partner OpenHouse. This type of collaborative partnership is an exemplar of translating innovative ideas into viable products that not only improves patient care but will generate a financial return to the NHS and inventors.”
“Following the success of Adult SCRAM®, and the established relationship with the inventors and manufacturers, we were able to quickly move this project from prototype development to manufacture and commercialisation. Additional advice from experts in paediatric medicine was a fundamental part of the Paediatric SCRAM® development process. The result is an extensive range of products to support safe, well-governed paediatric emergency airway management in a range of settings, across a diverse range of patient groups.”
