Thames Medical was founded in 1993 to introduce, sell and service innovative vital signs monitors specialising in the pre-hospital, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) field. One of the first products available was the revolutionary portable MiniPack 911 series of Blood Pressure/ Pulse Oximeter monitors, designed especially for paramedics on the move.
Since then we have extended into various fields and in particular the Veterinary field where we are known for introducing the first veterinary specific pulse Oximeter (1994) and more latterly with work particularly in the feline hypertension.
Various patents have been filed over the years including one for a multi wavelength pulse Oximeter, now used by and seeing life as the rainbow monitor from Masimo.
The last 20 years have brought challenges to us all but as we enter our 3rd decade we are still learning and applying the lessons learned into hopefully making our customers lives easier and the ultimate end users of our products and services – the patients lives better.
