SUPPORTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY

FROM GIROMAX TECHNOLOGY
Working together for a healthier life …
This summer we were delighted to make our annual donation to 'The Masharani Practice' in Lutterworth, for the purchase of a new screening device for peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
Giromax are committed to their ongoing support of the local community. Following previous donations for the purchase of vital Medical Equipment including Inspection Lights and Adjustable Beds. Donations over the past two years have totaled over £10,000.
The device will help with early diagnosis of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Over 70% of patients do not know about the disease because they do not feel or recognise the symptoms until severe complications occur. Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) measurement is a simple solution for diagnosing PAD. It compares blood pressure in the arm and legs. With the new ABPI MD device, the procedure is reliable, objective and now possible to be performed as a screening device in the healthcare practice.
