Meet an IMDA Member - MED Alliance
PneumaCare is a Cambridge, U.K.-based
company, developing and marketing revolutionary non-contact,
non-invasive respiratory imaging systems. Founded in 2009, the
company initially focused on the need for better lung function
assessment in children. Since that time, PneumaCare has expanded
this focus to include adults in the lung function, ICU and
thoracic surgery segments.
Its flagship product, Thora3DIâ„¢, uses the PneumaViewâ„¢ system
operating platform and the PneumaViewâ„¢3D analysis software to
provide clinicians with te first, real-time, non-contact,
non-invasive bedside imaging of a patientâ€™s tidal breathing.
This output allows the clinician to view the regional chest wall
movement contributions and analyze these for unexpected
asymmetries due to respiratory-related issues.
Thanks to its mobile design,
Thora3DIâ„¢ can gather recordable data on seated patients in a
clinic or other outpatient setting, or at the patientâ€™s bedside
in the hospital.
PneumaCare has embarked on a clinical trial in California on
patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Learn more

Annual Conference Update
Be prepared for something new at this year's IMDA Conference and Manufacturers Forum. For the first

affect the buying habits of our customers
Navigating a supply chain inhabited by
Honing our management skills.
Understanding value analysis, group purchasing and vendor credentialing
Improving our selling skills and those
of our field reps
Identifying new medical technologies
that will help our customers address their need for improved
patient care at a lower cost.
The Conference will be held at the Chicago
O 'Hare Marriott Hotel, located close to O 'Hare as well as
convenient access to Downtown Chicago. We get started with our
Golf Tournament on Saturday afternoon, July 22. Meetings and
educational sessions begin Sunday afternoon. Get ready to view
exciting medical technologies at the Manufacturers Forum, to be
held Sunday evening, Monday evening and other break times. We
will end at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 25.
Those who don't golf on

are playing the Cardinals. Looking into tickets now, though,
because Cubs/Cardinals games are usually sold out.
