September 15, 2015

London, UK  In a major exhibition at the 2015 DSEI, Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today revealed a full range of solutions for military care and treatment. Visitors to the Philips booth (#N8-178) will experience Philips’ breadth of medical solutions across the military care continuum, from helping to educate and train medical teams before deployment, to providing lightweight, rugged medical solutions to help triage and diagnose at the point of injury, as well as providing rapidly deployable solutions for diagnosis and treatment for Role 1, 2, 2E, 3 and 4 hospitals.

At 10.30am on September 15th 2015, the first morning of DSEI, Philips, Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group and Brigadier Charlie Beardmore from the UK MOD are delighted to be celebrating the official opening of the world’s first 128 slice CT scanner in a rapidly deployable, expandable container. Designed to provide advanced diagnostic capabilities closer to casualty receiving areas, this new, deployable, Queen’s Award winning CT solution will be on display at the Philips stand.


“We are continuously looking for new solutions to provide better care and treatment to those who serve and protect us. This solution enables faster diagnosis and treatment which we believe leads to better patient outcomes and more lives saved. The expandable Marshall shelter with the latest Philips Ingenuity 128-slice CT Scanner provides ultra-high resolution imagery in less than a minute, enabling fast diagnosis and essential surgery to take place quickly” said Paul Cropper, Global Head Military and Disaster Relief, Philips.


At DSEI Philips will be displaying a wide range of health innovations that demonstrate Philips continuing commitment to improving military medical support.
