Shvabe Holding of Rostec State Corporation launches the export of neonatal intensive care incubators to the Malaysian market. The first Russian-made high-tech medical devices will arrive to the medical institutions of the South Asian country at the beginning of October 2021.
A neonatal intensive care incubator produced by Shvabe Holding's Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant named after Mr. E.S. Yalamov (JSC PA UOMP) has received medical registration in Malaysia. The device creates an optimal microclimate for developmental care for preterm infants, ensuring uniform heat distribution, air humidification and oxygen supply.
"Malaysia is a reliable buyer of Russian civilian products. We are already supplying Kuala Lumpur clinics with a line of neonatal equipment, such as phototherapeutic irradiators and heaters, neonatal tables. Shvabe's new equipment will enable the full range of developmental care procedures for infants, including those with extremely low birth weight. Along with the launch of the supply of intensive care incubators, we plan to register more models from the range of modern neonatal medical equipment in the region," said Rostec's Executive Director Oleg Yevtushenko.
Rostec companies produce a wide range of neonatal devices, including incubators for newborns, neonatal resuscitation tables and phototherapy devices for neonatal jaundice treatment. In 2020, neonatal equipment was supplied to Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Slovenia.
Asia is one of the priority markets for the State Corporation's medical solutions. There is a steady demand for the equipment produced by the Rostec's holding company as the region accounts for about 70% of Shvabe's total exports annually.
