"In this emergency situation, Latvian companies as well as medical institutions had to look for innovative solutions and new approaches to everyday work”, says Rinalds Mucins, Chairman of the Board of Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital. “We are pleased to admit that we are succeeding. We can adapt and provide care and assistance to our hospital patients by introducing various new technological solutions into the daily work of doctors and nurses. Therefore, it is a double pleasure to receive this donation – the body temperature measurement system created by a Latvian company which will significantly ease the critical daily work of our nurses and alleviate the heavy workload of existing employees that they often experience due to the lack of nursing staff."

"The world is faced with a situation that has not been seen in a very long time. The last global pandemic was in 1918. No one knows what to do or how to do it. The world is learning by doing and so are we at SAF Tehnika. In the very first week of the declared emergency state, we wrote and submitted our project to the EU HORIZON 2020 programme to combat the COVID19 pandemic. I do not know anyone who has written and submitted a paper to the Brussels science programme in just 48 hours. SAF did it, thanks to our employees. This was the beginning of the product “Large-Scale Wireless Body Temperature Monitoring Solution for Hospitals”. Without waiting for the outcome of the grant, we have already created the first version of the thermometer and are able to offer it all over the world"

Normunds Bergs, Chairman of the Board at SAF Tehnika

"This collaboration with Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital is an important step towards the development of medical sensors. Real hospital conditions will allow us to better understand the specifics of the medical field and improve our product portfolio"
