ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that it has signed an agreement to purchase substantially all of the assets of Impact Instrumentation, Inc., of West Caldwell, a manufacturer of respiratory care products.
Impact Instrumentation has been designing and manufacturing portable and automatic emergency ventilators, portable and onboard aspirators, custom mounting systems, and specialized testing systems for over 35 years. Products include the Uni-Vent® Series of portable critical care ventilators and portable resuscitators, and the Ultra-Lite® Series of portable aspirators, which are used aboard ships, aircraft, and other military medical and transport services.
The acquisition complements ZOLL’s comprehensive portfolio of innovative lifesaving equipment for military applications, including monitors and defibrillators. Impact is the leading supplier of transport ventilators to the U.S. military. With the addition of the Impact Instrumentation product line, ZOLL will now offer solutions to optimize circulation, cardiac rhythm, and ventilation when caring for critically ill patients, particularly those serving in the armed forces.
“ZOLL has partnered with the U.S. military for over 30 years, with an emphasis on advancing resuscitation and critical care technology,” said Jonathan A. Rennert, President of ZOLL. “Impact’s strong alignment with ZOLL’s existing military sales channel allows us to further expand our efforts to provide products known for the highest reliability in clinical performance and versatility to those serving in the military.”Related Articles:
