A new agreement will make more isolation stretchers, the so-called EpiShuttle, available to citizens and visitors of Qatar and the UAE. The distributor agreement was signed by the frontrunner of medical equipment in the Middle East, Leader Healthcare, and the cutting-edge technology developer EpiGuard. The two firms are now set on improving the preparedness of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

‘We have searched for the best product to isolate and transport contaminated or contagious individuals. In our search, we found the EpiShuttle to have unparalleled features. The EpiShuttle is by far the superior product on the market. At the same time, it is the most cost-efficient in use,’ said Malaz Fadlallah, head of Medical Division of Leader Healthcare. 

EpiShuttle by EpiGuard is single-patient isolation and transport system designed to provide maximum public safety while allowing critical care and treatment on the contaminated patient inside.

‘The EpiShuttle represents a significant step forward in public safety, especially when it comes to large-scale mass gatherings. Large religious gatherings and sports events represent substantial challenges for the entire health sector of host countries.’

‘Today, emerging and increasing public threats of natural or deliberate nature significantly increase mass gatherings’ health and safety vulnerability. The EpiShuttle has proven effective in live transports of patients contaminated with chemical war agents and in hundreds of Covid-19 transports. We have also seen the EpiShuttle provide safe and efficient transports of patients with other infectious diseases like Ebola and Tuberculosis,’ said Ellen Cathrine Andersen, CEO of EpiGuard. 

‘We found a perfect partner in Leader Healthcare. They have provided the finest healthcare solutions for more than ten years, and the EpiShuttle is an excellent strategic fit with their competence and knowledge. Now, we hope the EpiShuttle can keep even more Qatar and the UAE citizens safe from both existing threats and, perhaps more importantly, so-far unknown threats in years to come,’ Andersen continued.

‘The EpiShuttle protects the surroundings from any contaminated person, while at the same time it allows for monitoring and full intensive care treatment of the unfortunate one inside. In addition, the adjustable backrest of the EpiShuttle is extremely important when trying to keep coughing from patients with yet unseen variants of Covid-19, at a minimum,’ said Sukhdeep Sachdev, The Global CEO of Leader Healthcare. 

‘The EpiShuttle is single patient isolation and transport system for safely transporting contagious patients through air, land, and sea. The EpiShuttle makes everyone safer, especially when we do not know what will strike next;’ Andersen said: The EpiShuttle is the safe choice.’

The EpiShuttle is designed to protect both the environment and a single individual from contamination, in either positive or negative air-pressure mode. It can isolate and save a VIP from a contaminated area in positive air-pressure mode. The EpiShuttle is already used with Abu Dhabi Police and Dubai Corporation for ambulance services.’

Qatar, however, has no EpiShuttles.WHO uses the EpiShuttle and first responders in Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Peru, Ireland, Greece, Norway, and Finland on a global scaled on worldwide scale. Also, national air forces like the British, Australian, Canadian, Danish, Norwegian and others are equipped with EpiShuttles.
