UK-based Prometheus Medical (Stand N3-197) is showing some of its latest and innovative medical supplies and equipment.

Its Russell Chest Seal hydrogel-based dressing has been proven in military operations. The Russell PneumoFix, a sterile decompression device with a low-pressure one-way valve, allows air and fluid out but nothing in, while its graduated marking and an X-ray detectable catheter enable depth recording and accurate localisation at hospital.

The Tactical Pelvic Splint is specifically designed for military pre-hospital use.
