EMS Today 2008

We introduced the Trulite Disposable LED Laryngoscope from Truphatek at EMS Today in Baltimore last week. ALS providers commented that the quality and performance easily justified the price. Several agencies thought it would be a more easily carried "first in" laryngoscope. Some pointed out it’s potential to impact quality assurance in a positive way.
We also launched our new AllMed Rescue Gloves; our new ANSI certified Hi-Viz Rescue Vest, and fielded lots of questions about our prototype Ultra-X Class E Pants. 
EMS Today has long been known as one of two annual events that are attended by EMS Professionals from around the world. One big reason why is because this is the place to see the latest EMS Product innovations. It provides attendees a unique peek into tomorrow’s technology today. It was a great show this year, with attendance up and more time to see the exhibits. Stay tuned to EMS1.com, for more details on some of the exciting new EMS products I found at EMS Today!
For me the highlight of the event was when Walt A. Stoy, PhD, EMT-P, CCEMTP and Baxter Larmon, PhD, MICP came over and modeled our latest AllMed Safety Apparel designs. Both are pictured here wearing our AVC Helmet. Walt is wearing the new Hi-Viz Rescue vest while Baxter shows his style in an Ultra-X Coat.
A bunch of Medics from Iceland showed up and I could not resist getting my picture taken with them. In many parts of the world, good looking and functional high visibility gear are commonplace. It was the only time during the show that I blended into a crowd.
