Recovery Force Health Launches Flagship Therapeutic Mobility Measurement Device

Genesis Plastics Welding is proud to spread the word about the launch of contract manufacturing client Recovery Force Health’s flagship therapeutic mobility measurement device – The Movement and Compressions™ (MAC) System. The Fishers-based medtech company is unveiling the medical device this week at the National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition and Conference (NTI) in Houston. Visit them in booth 2409, follow them on LinkedIn and see their full press release below…

Meet The MAC System

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Recovery Force Health to Commercially Launch Movement And Compressions at NTI 2022

Recovery Force Health, LLC will commercially launch its flagship therapeutic mobility measurement device, the MAC System, at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (NTI) in May of 2022.

The MAC System is cleared as an FDA Class II device prescribed by healthcare professionals to stimulate blood flow in the lower extremities. By delivering therapeutic compression, the device assists the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in at-risk patients.

As a first-of-its-kind, therapeutic mobility measurement tool, the MAC System tracks patient positioning and activity for providers to monitor adherence to mobility protocols.

Data displayed on the device gives caregivers a snapshot of patient data from the current day in addition to yesterday’s data to properly gauge mobility progression.

Objective mobility status can be useful for all disciplines to help minimize risk factors for hospital-acquired events such as deep vein thrombosis, pressure injury, pneumonia, and patient falls.

NTI is the AACN’s annual premier progressive and critical care nursing conference hosting thousands of healthcare professionals with this year’s conference taking place in Houston, Texas. Attendees will be able to participate in nearly 300 different live sessions dedicated to cutting-edge topics in today’s high-acuity nursing environment.

Recovery Force Health’s booth #2409 will be open for attendees on May 17-18 giving visitors the opportunity to learn more about the company and demo the innovative MAC System.

Booth #2409 will be located in the technical section and can be viewed via this interactive exhibitor map.

Recovery Force Health (RF Health) is a digital health device company focused on data-driven, wearable, medical technology. The company has developed a cordless, lithium-ion powered, compression and mobility device for patients in the hospital and at home.

2022 Biotech, Biopharma and Contract Manufacturing

It has been a rough couple of pandemic years. We’ve seen market changes, disruptions— and even some major advances within Biotech, Biopharma and medical device. Yes, friends, hope springs eternal, and as we continue to navigate this new normal, our team is looking forward to a 2022 filled with new projects, business relationships and exciting trends within Biotech!

Things are Looking Bright for Biotech & Medical Device in 2022

2022 is looking extremely bright for many industries, including Biotech and medical device! Industry experts predict overall revenue growth driven by continued innovation and emerging technologies.

As markets evolve and drive opportunity, it should be a banner year for medical device-focused contract manufacturers, as well. Growth for many Biotech, Biopharma and medical device OEMs is presenting capacity questions – expand or farm out? With ever-narrowing margins and increased competition, strategic outsourcing bridges the gap quickest and most efficiently. Contract manufacturing partners like Genesis Plastics Welding with medical device design, development and production expertise will be key in helping these OEMs hit the ground running in 2022 and beyond.

So what else can start-ups, OEMs, creators and contract manufacturers look forward to in 2022? Well, a few exciting things and a few continued challenges. Let’s unpack the predicted trends.

  • The continuation of global supply chain challenges – especially within plastics and paper. Strong supply chain relationships and proactive inventory management will be key in 2022. Having an agile contract manufacturing partner skilled in the art of pivoting will help keep much-needed medical device products flowing to market.
  • Acceleration and evolution of point-of-care diagnostic devices – especially rapid-response technologies and devices. The development of these types of in-demand devices in 2020 and 2021 is where Biopharma excelled. I believe we’ll continue to see this trend.
  • A rebound of elective procedures and the medical devices that support them – With the current Covid surge and the Omicron variant, these are once again on hold, but I believe it will be short-lived and elective procedures will be back by spring. We are currently seeing an increase in R&D around devices to support surgical procedures, and that is a great sign.
  • Challenges of increased labor costs across all industries – At the core of a collaborative contract manufacturer is a deep desire to serve well and continually reduce costs and improve efficiency. Despite the hurdles of the pandemic and disruptions caused by labor shortages and labor cost increases, I believe the medical device contract manufacturing industry will continue to rebounded and pivot to serve customers and be a lifeline for Biotech, Biopharma and medical device OEMs.
  • Continued integration of artificial intelligence (AI) within medical device – Daily, we become a more and more connected world. We’ll see even more AI within medical device, especially diagnostics and robotic-assisted surgery.

No matter the medical device, Biotech or Biopharma trends, one key to continued success will be a focus on leveraging strong business partnerships to help bring breakthrough life enhancing, healing and life saving devices to market as quickly as possible. At the center, is smart outsourcing—whether you are in the early design and development phases, prototyping and validation or manufacturing, having outsourced expertise, like Genesis Plastics Welding, on your side can move you faster and more competitively into the market.

Did you know we have a dedicated medical device design and development division? Let’s chat.

Moreover, we all have a lot of living to do this year. The GPW team looks forward to thriving and growing together! Cheers!
