Listening, creating, improving.
Technology for the benefit of independence and autonomy has a great importance. Such technology should help to provide feasible and affordable answers to complex care questions, which greatly increase because of aging Still, there are very few companies in Western Europe that manufacture very modern assistive devices that contribute to independent home living and functioning longer and better. Focal belongs to this select group of companies and even gained a leading position when it comes to support or replacement of the arm and hand function, body support and independent feeding.
To us, it does not matter if it concerns dynamic arm supports, care robotics, eating devices or another product: Focal always works from the same uniform approach when it comes to the development of products. Listening, creating, improving is our motto. This entails that the demand of our users stands fully central. We try to listen carefully to what those demands are. Thereafter, we start with our skilled and well-equipped development- and production departments. Getting an advanced assistive device on the market is a complex process. With our first products, we go back to the users and improve them on their instructions. We do not stop, until it is fully geared to their wishes.
The employees of Focal Meditech give their best effort to realize and deliver the best Assistive Technology products. Having dialogs and contact with our stakeholders and users is of great importance. Under mentioned, you will find our contact persons from different departments.
