Ariane Medical Systems Ltd

Simon Bernard, CEO
Mark Davies, International Sales Manager

T: +44 (0)1332 242258
E: mark.davies@arianemedicalsystems.com
W: www.arianemedicalsystems.com

Company Profile:

Ariane Medical Systems Ltd was established in 2005 to answer a clinical request to develop an X-ray Brachytherapy System for the management of lower rectal tumours, known as the Papillon Technique. The Papillon treatment was well recognised for the treatment of rectal cancers in inoperable patients, be this due to fragility, age or associated comorbidities. What was need was 21st century technology to breath new life into this well respected treatment.

Since the development of the first Papillon50 system in 2009, the Papillon technique has seen a massive increase in popularity across Europe. With an ageing but ultimately fitter population, today’s clinical focus has moved on to Watch and Wait and Organ Preservation in the treatment of lower rectal tumours and the Papillon X-ray Brachytherapy systems are offering a real choice for operable patients. Patients who are interested in avoiding a permanent stoma can be treated by the Papillon system either by itself or in conjunction with existing external beam and chemotherapy with a view to avoiding radical surgery and improving their overall Quality of Life.

Ariane’s latest Papillon+™ X-Ray Brachytherapy delivery system has taken the High-Dose Rate, Low-Energy methodology of the rectal treatment and successfully applied it to superficial skin cancers and Interoperative Radiotherapy (IORT) applications including a single IORT boost for breast cancer patients. This ability to offer direct, fast, secure, interoperative applications is opening new potential treatment options for the treatment of tumour beds or surgical margins. This IORT capability is even more important as we begin to realise this Covid world is not going away soon and restricting patient hospital in-time becomes more important.

With our Papillon treatment systems having treated thousands of patients in 6 countries across Europe, with new systems planned in Africa and India in 2022, our goal for Arab Health 2022 is to connect with clinical and commercial partners across the globe and to bring this system and its clinical applications to your markets and most importantly your patients.

Founded over 90 years ago, we are still at the forefront in sharing best practice in training and education for people with learning disabilities between nations and cultures, creating bespoke staff training programmes for educational and care providers, and consulting on educational and training pathways and interventions. We currently work with healthcare and educational organisations in the UAE, Kuwait and other regions.

• Special schools/Special colleges/Training providers
• Rehabilitation Centres

• Medical practitioners with an interest in learning disability
• Assistive technology providers
• Charities working with learning disabilities

Derwen’s approach is based around vocational and independence training to support transition from specialist education into supported employment and supported or independent living. Education and training takes place within real-life work settings on the College campus, including a training hotel, restaurants, garden centre, print shop, charity shop, and a gift shop selling food products and gifts, many of which are made by students. Vocational Pathways include ‘Hospitality and Food’, ‘Horticulture’, ‘Retail and Enterprise’ and ‘Performing Arts’. We offer a pre-vocational pathway ‘Learning for Life’ for students not yet ready for a customer facing environment. Our latest programme is ‘Nurture’ a highly bespoke sensory provision for young people with PMLD. Student outcomes are impressive. Number of leavers going into paid employment far exceed the national average for young people with SEND. Partnership working is central to our ethos. We have an extensive network of employer and business partners. An example is our collaboration in the development of an award-winning suite of mobile apps to support young people with SEND in work experience and to help them move forward successfully into the workplace.

Company Profile:

NuVision Biotherapies is an award-winning biotechnology company spun out of the University of Nottingham, UK. NuVision was established to develop and commercialise innovative and clinically disruptive tissue-based therapies to effectively manage soft tissue damage situations across multiple clinical specialities across a global market, including ophthalmology, dry eye disease, diabetic foot ulcers and wider wound care.

Developed by the founder and CSO, Dr Andrew Hopkinson, our first platform technology, Tereo processed human amniotic membrane, is manufactured from the innermost layer of the placental sac that surrounds, protects and nurtures the developing baby. Amniotic membrane has potent natural anti-inflammatory, anti-scarring, and healing properties. Our proprietary Tereo manufacture process uniquely overcomes the known limitations of conventional cryo-preservation and dehydration methodologies, to delicately preserves the important natural qualities and beneficial properties of amniotic membrane in a dry and stable, off-the-shelf, and highly functional format. Tereo is a patent protected process that allows the cost-effective, manufacture of highly standardised and effective products with versatile wound care application potential.

NuVision’s is currently disrupting ophthalmology, transforming the way eye disease is managed:

Omnigen, Tereo processed amniotic membrane product range, is available for the management of a range of conditions including corneal disease, ocular surface reconstruction, dry eye disease and inflammatory conditions. Omnigen provides a versatile modality that supports early and effective management of inflammation and fibrosis, to enhance healing and clinical outcomes for transformed patient care. OmniLenz, a unique bandage contact lens, allowing suture-free application of Omnigen. The simplicity of OmniLenz application of Omnigen (www.omnilenz.com), utilises a straightforward 4–6-minute procedure, revolutionising and simplifying amniotic membrane use, which enables access in routine out-patient, emergency, optometry, and private settings.

Our unique Omnigen and OmniLenz treatment strategy provides the solution for complete ophthalmology patient care, uniquely facilitating early and preventive intervention in a broader range of superficial/moderate eye diseases, which traditionally would be excluded from the regenerative benefits of amniotic membrane transplantation. Around 10,000 treatments have already been distributed to help fight sight-destroying disease, which are routinely used throughout the UK NHS, and are distributed across 10 countries including through Ophthalmology partnerships in Finland, Switzerland, Denmark, and Kuwait. Omnigen-OmniLenz have been clinically validated via peer reviewed publications supporting safety and effectiveness, with ongoing clinical trials in dry eye and inflammatory disease. NuVision’s second focus is diabetic foot ulcers and wider wound care, with published pilot clinical trial data already supporting improved healing and patient recovery. Tereo processed amniotic membrane is a versatile treatment modality that has the potential to be applied across further soft-tissue damage situation to utilise improve natural healing. NuVision’s expert research and clinical development team continuously work to expand the use of the Tereo process resulting in an exciting technology pipeline. NuVision is looking to expand our international commercial partnerships in Ophthalmology and Wound Care in the global arena, as well as exploring opportunities to develop enhance surgical and outpatient innovations for a range of healthcare markets.

Company Profile:

‘A Surgeon’s Vision’
Our slogan signifies not only A surgeon’s (Founder) commitment to Functional Quality, Precision, Customization and Continuous Innovation of surgical instruments, but also the value of bridging the gap between Surgeons/ Clinical End-Users and the instrument manufacturing industry. The result is ’ Surgins ’ instruments not only have exceptional levels of functionality, engineered in precision and durability but they are also cost-effectively manufactured. Whether purchasing a single instrument / instrument sets or equipping a whole new hospital, whether Left handed instruments or key hole surgery instruments.

Unique Selling Point (USP)
British Surgical instruments developed by Surgeons for Surgeons. In order to do this we:
• Prioritise our company on the viewpoint and wisdom of surgeons.
•Focus our product development on surgeons as the end users and key influencer in design.
• Understand surgeon centred needs, wants, motivations, likes and dislikes.

All Surgins‘ product ranges have been defined by British surgeons of relevant surgical disciplines including dental and veterinary surgeons.

Competitive Advantage
The Healthcare Market is professional and knowledgeable. Healthcare products require clinical credibility to have acceptance by clinicians for use on their patients. ‘Surgins’ built their clinical credibility by prioritising the viewpoint of surgeons and clinical end users of surgical instruments. By adopting a ‘surgeon centric’ approach, we actively seek to understand the needs, wants, motivations, likes and dislikes of the key people in the surgical front line. At Surgins, clinical credibility is of the highest priority and we work tirelessly to meet, and exceed, the most stringent standards.

Surgeons and clinicians come in all shapes and sizes, and work in their own unique ways. It is hardly surprising therefore, that one set of instruments will not always meet everyone’s requirements. To address this issue we offer the opportunity for surgeons to either customise existing instruments to suit, or to work with us to develop a completely new design as per their individual concept, expertise and wisdom. Instruments can then be embossed with the surgeon’s own name to ensure they are always using the right tools for the job.

Surgeon’s Global platform for R&D
A world-class environment for collaborative research in the development and continuous innovation of surgical instruments, to bridge the gap between surgeons and industry. Our aim is to bring people ( Distributors/ Agents/Customers/ Investors/Stake holders together in a way that promotes creativity, connectedness, and collaboration. The Surgins team is led by people who convey a clear vision of the team's purpose, provide the team with the necessary resources to complete their jobs, and maintain the team's overall character. Surgins sales strategy is based on personal, consistent sales contact, with an emphasis on customer service and relations.
