Wales’ Leading Life Sciences Firms to Showcase in USA This Week


Amongst the companies Welsh Government is taking to this month’s FIME, the largest medical trade fair across the Americas, is Cardiff based Huntleigh Healthcare, who were recently awarded a Queen’s Award for Innovation.

Wales will be taking three companies to the Florida International Medical Expo on June 26-28, with R&D Medical and Ultrasound Technologies joining Huntleigh Healthcare on the Wales stand.

The innovative Huntleigh Healthcare will be showcasing their new range of Digital Handheld Dopplers at FIME, for which they won the Queen’s Award, alongside their expanded range of Patient Monitors. Dopplers are hand-held ultrasound transducers used to detect the fetal heartbeat for prenatal care.

A member of the Arjo family, Huntleigh Healthcare has over 60 engineers in Cardiff Bay, and has been supporting healthcare professionals in improving outcomes and enhancing patient wellbeing since 1979, offering proven solutions for Vascular Assessment & Treatment and Fetal & Patient Monitoring.

Huntleigh Healthcare Managing Director Peter Cashin said:

“FIME provides a great showcase for us in attracting both commercial and healthcare professionals from most South American and Caribbean regions. We received the Queen’s Award last month for combining state-of-the-art design with the highest levels of quality and performance, making clinicians’ jobs easier, safer and more efficient, and we’ll be looking to use this international recognition to help secure global business at FIME.”

The new Dopplers exemplify Huntleigh Healthcare’s customer-focused innovation, featuring high resolution colour display for the first time, which allows clinicians to clearly see vascular waveforms as well as hear digital audio sounds. In the Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) version the FHR data is displayed in high visibility large numbers and recorded digitally as a waveform for archiving and review.
