Gilbert Technologies and Philips Engineering Solutions team up on medical device development
There may be new hope on the horizon for lung patients with difficult to treat conditions, like fibrotic diseases and severe asthma, thanks to Dutch start-up Gilbert Technologies. Together with Philips Engineering Solutions, the company is working to turn their proprietary soft mist technology into a first-of-a-kind medical inhaler device, which has the potential to improve treatment effectiveness for patients and reduce medical costs.
“Chronic lung diseases remain the third leading cause of death and disability worldwide,” says Maurits Huigen, CEO of Gilbert Technologies. “It’s our mission to make medical treatment easier and more effective for lung patients to save lives and help them live the life they want, while reducing the burden of care on health systems.”
