Federal government fills supply gap
The ventilators and medical protective equipment of Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA are in great demand. Two weeks ago, the company received a major order from the German government. According to the announcement, the delivery of 10,000 ventilators and protective equipment for medical personnel was agreed. The delivery will cover the next 12 months. This order is directly related to the spread of the corona virus and will be used to supply the healthcare system.
Product to combat shortages
In addition to ventilators, X-ray equipment is also needed to monitor the course of the disease in the patient's lungs. In recent years, the Australian company Micro-X Limited has developed a mobile X-ray unit that is now going into series production. The device is called the Carestream DRX Revolution Nano. The advantage is that the device can be moved, which increases the treatment comfort of the patients.
Based on the demand for the devices, the company will adapt its growth strategy and immediately initiate operational measures originally planned for a later date, Micro-X recently announced. As hospitals are now the focus of events and gaps in medical care are becoming apparent, more money is expected to flow into healthcare now and in the future.
Sales increase significantly

In the past fiscal year, the company generated sales of AUD 1.9 million and was already able to announce incoming orders of AUD 2.4 million in the first quarter of 2020.
