DESIGNED TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF SPECIAL FORCES AND EXTREME MILITARY SITUATIONS.
LIGHT, COMPACT AND PORTABLE!
Collaborating with military and special forces in the design process has resulted in a robust product which can tolerate water, drop, and rough treatment, making it resilient in a pre-hospital setting. It is also approved for use in helicopter and airplanes. The Power Pack is easy to connect to the warmer, and the connection is secured to prevent detachment during transportation.
The compact design and the light weight make it one of the smallest products on the market while still accommodating the high requirements from military and special forces operations.
“The °M Warmer makes sense for us, as it is the only battery-operated blood warming device with the flow rates and run
time that we need. Battery run-time is important for us – as is the ability to charge the device from any power source. Right now, we’re installing chargers for the °M Warmer onboard our ambulances, so that the devices can be charged and ready for us at all times and can be carried to trauma patients when needed.
Battery-operated devices also simplify the time-consuming approval rounds needed for helicopter use. If we had to draw power from the airframe itself to charge the device, a lot of extra testing and approvals would be required. The °M Warmer needs only approval to be carried onboard and basically halves the amount of approval rounds required.”

“Everyone taking part on a mission carries a large pack – and every medic needs to carry two. So, it is important that the °M Warmer is small and lightweight.
In the Special Forces, a transfusion can potentially take place at any time if recommended by the medical supervisor – before or during an evacuation. And it could take place anywhere from the point of injury to a vehicle or to the point of care. So, it is necessary that the device can be used safely during transportation, and that it is quick and intuitive to use.”
