About our company.

TADA Medical AB was founded in the spring of 2016 with the inspiration to truly make a difference by improving healthcare.

The four founders met for the first time when participating in the intense project Clinical Innovations Fellowship. The project is a joint effort between the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Karolinska Institute and EIT Health striving to be a unique innovation engine aimed at producing world-class medical technology innovations. During this nine-month period, we had the opportunity to submerge ourselves in every detail of a specific healthcare setting to fully understand all aspects of their needs.

Products.
SCUBA
There is a huge need for a patient-friendly and efficient method for preventing mucositis in adults and children.

Cancer treatments have several adverse effects, one being oral mucositis. Oral mucositis is the inflammation of the mucosa in the mouth and throat resulting in painful sores and blisters. Mucositis can lead to increased risk for infections, prolonged hospital stay, nutrition and fluid deficiency, delays and disruption of treatment and in worst case fatal complications.

SCUBA is a product combining a unique efficient cooling technique and a sense of control for the patient with being comfortable enough to be used by patients of all ages.

THOOR
Approximately 85% of patients admitted to the hospital will need one or several infusions. On average, one in ten of these will be prematurely interrupted due to accidental dislodgment. Dislodgment results in complications such as extended hospitalization, increase healthcare staff workload and increased patient suffering.

THOOR is a patented safety-engineered fail-safe connector, developed to protect the patient, infusion tube and any additional equipment connected to the tube from damage. By placing our connector on the tube, it can be pulled without damage and with minimum impact on ongoing infusion therapy.

Our connector is being evaluated as a part of the CE process and is currently not offered for sale. However, we are looking for OEMs and partnerships. Please contact us here

These products are not for sale and are waiting CE clearance.
