Gradian Health Systems and IOXBETA Announce Partnership to Strengthen New Product Development Capabilities

Sep 10, 2022

New York, NY, September 10, 2022 | Gradian Health Systems and IOXBETA are proud to announce a strategic partnership that aims to strengthen Gradian’s new product development capabilities. 

Over the last year, Gradian and IOXBETA – a studio focused on connected healthcare – have been working together in an effort to ramp up Gradian’s clinician-driven innovation process. Alongside one of Gradian’s newest manufacturing partners, Canon Virginia Inc. (CVI), IOXBETA has been instrumental in the redesign of Gradian’s flagship product, the UAM, as well as the development of Gradian’s newest product, the K-O2

Originally developed in 2011, the UAM was Gradian’s first product – an anesthesia machine designed to work in the absence of electricity and medical oxygen. The redesigned UAM incorporates new features, based on customer feedback and rigorous product testing, to now include more advanced ventilation modes and monitoring. 

The partnership has also made way for the development of Gradian’s newest product, the K-O2. The K-O2 is designed to improve oxygen access across a variety of healthcare facilities – an urgent need that has been exasperated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

IOXBETA and Gradian are thrilled to combine IOXBETA’s strengths in research & development alongside Gradian’s commitment to working alongside healthcare providers to design and introduce human-centered solutions that address gaps in markets around the world. 

Gradian and IOXBETA will be showcasing these two products and more at this week’s All Africa Anesthesia Congress from September 7–10, 2022 in Kigali, Rwanda.
