Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible
How We Collaborate
With ongoing studies and collaborations with the international community, Thornhill Medical researchers, engineers, clinicians, and product specialists work actively to unlock crucial insights toward our shared goal of saving lives.
Remote Control of Medical Devices for Virtual Disaster Care
Thornhill Medical is accelerating medical device interoperability.
See how Thornhill Medical is thriving at the leading edge of innovation.
The demonstration reaffirmed the transformational impact of deploying interoperable medical devices like MOVES® SLC™ that feature remote capabilities, and underscored the potential of integrated, future-proof technologies to transform casualty care today and in the future.
MOVES® SLC™ performs patient evacuation with remote control
In a demonstration of “Remote Control of Ventilators & Infusion Pumps to Support Disaster Care” organized by the U.S. Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), clinical professionals located in Seattle, WA remotely operated a MOVES® SLC™ located in Toronto, Canada, 2,500 miles away, simulating a successful patient evacuation scenario.
Teaming Up with Leading Medical Solutions Providers to Develop Medical Surge Capabilities for U.S. National Disaster Medical System
Funded by the Defense Health Agency (DHA), the pilot project brings together leading medical solutions providers in a team led by Deloitte Consulting LLP, to design, develop and test a prototype of modular or convertible medical facilities that would increase surge capabilities in national security medical emergencies. This combined “surge solution” aims to strengthen the USA’s response to national disasters and the capacity to care for casualties from an overseas wartime contingency, a domestic attack, or other national security medical emergencies.

Collaboration in Switzerland
Collaboration and information-sharing is a vital aspect of our researchers’ work. As just one example, recently, members of Thornhill Medical’s research team launched a collaborative study with Dr. Jorn Fierstra’s group in Zurich, Switzerland. We are working together to explore the use of hypoxia induced deoxyhemoglobin as a contrast agent in various pathologies.
