Philadelphia, PA. At the Medical Design Excellence Awards Presentation Ceremony on Thursday, 23 May, the King Vision video laryngoscope was announced as the Gold Winner in the Critical-Care and Emergency Medicine Products category.
Taking the top award in the category is a great honour for King Systems. Steve Davis, King Systems CEO, commented on the achievement, “We are very excited to receive this award. With help from clinicians, our entire company has put in a tremendous effort to design, develop and bring this product to market. Everyone involved is proud that King Systems is continuing to provide best-in-class products to medical professionals around the world”.
Using the latest cell phone camera and digital display technology, the King Vision video laryngoscope was developed to simulate the convenience and portability of traditional laryngoscopes at a fraction of the cost of available video laryngoscopes. The intent is to encourage use of this life-saving technology wherever tracheal intubation is needed, both inside and outside the hospital. King Vision is a lightweight, cost-effective video laryngoscope with a clinician-friendly design, disposable channelled and non-channelled blades and reusable OLED video display. It is truly the industry-first portable, affordable and durable video laryngoscope designed for difficult and routine intubation’s.
