A consortium of companies led by the Shvabe Holding of the Russian state-owned Rostec group will annually produce 2500 multifunctional ultrasound devices RUSCAN for selling to health facilities in Russia, including paediatric polyclinics.
The holding plans to occupy at least 20% of the Russian ultrasound devices market partially replacing the products of foreign manufacturers.
Modern devices RUSCAN will compete with Russian and a number of foreign manufacturers, including GE, Philips, Canon, Hitachi and others. The project is implemented within the framework of the targeted program “Development of the material and technical base of paediatric polyclinics and paediatric polyclinic departments of health facilities”. The goal of the program is to increase the accessibility and quality of medical care for children and equipping medical institutions with modern equipment.
“Our equipment is in no way inferior to foreign developments, and in some respects surpasses them, which makes it competitive both on the external and internal markets. The results of the local population statistical studies are integrated into the devices software that will help specialists make decisions based not only on their experience, but also on the statistical data collected over many years of medical practice. Moreover, Russian physicians will appreciate the Russian-language interface, which was developed with the participation of leading experts in the field of ultrasound investigations, “said Oleg Evtushenko, Executive Director of Rostec State Corporation.
