Introductory Quote


“In the past 18 months we have done national projects. Not one hospital, not two hospitals, not one region - across large scale countries as big as Germany, UK, France and not only modern countries but countries like India…and so on. Projects that are quite big..We have shipped millions of devices for our projects…This showed that technology can help at scale.
