Integrated Medical Systems, Inc. (Integrated Medical Systems), a medical technology systems integrator transforming critical care, has won $1.1 million in funding from the US Department of Defense (DOD). Integrated Medical Systems will use these funds for additional enhancements of the company's MedEx 1000 "suitcase" intensive care unit (ICU).

While these funds were included in an earlier announcement, we have confirmed they have been formally added to the company’s contract with the US Army, said Todd Kneale, president and chief operating officer of Integrated Medical Systems, Inc. In addition, these funds will make possible critical enhancements to the MedEx 1000 system before final delivery of the first units by year end. We welcome the Defense Department’s sense of urgency and sign of commitment to transforming critical care on the battlefield.

The company’s vice president for engineering, Frank Goodman, added, This commitment by the Defense Department will translate into even greater safety and effectiveness for combat casualties as well as their caregivers.
