We consider ourselves very lucky to work for a company that is able to support both the military and civilian settings like EMS and hospital with our battery-powered Thermal Angel Blood and IV Fluid Infusion Warmer.
We originally developed our Ultra Battery 1 to meet the needs of our military, by creating a lighter battery, that could charge from a variety of options, in a very short amount of time.
We recently had a very gratifying thing happen. A local hospital customer of ours called in a panic. They had our Standard Battery, but someone hadn’t charged it since the last use. The Standard Battery takes hours to charge if it is completely depleted. The hospital had just delivered a preemie baby that needed a blood infusion, and they wanted to know what they could do to get their battery charged quickly so that they could deliver warm fluids.
My brother Brandon grabbed one of our Military Ultra Operations Modules, which includes the Ultra Battery 1, and all of the charging options. He jumped in his truck and headed to the hospital, about 1 hour away. Brandon was able to fully charge the Ultra Battery while he was driving with his cigarette lighter port. Brandon was able to get to the hospital in time for the patient and nurses. How cool is that? Military innovation always filters down to civilian settings.
Because the military is such a big user of our Thermal Angel and Ultra Battery 1, we developed a kit for the EMS and hospital markets that packages those products in a way that meets the needs of those caregivers. Information on our Ultra Emergency Pack TA-UEP can be found on our website.
Thank you U.S. Military. We appreciate what you do for us.
