PD1 started with a simple idea – help health care facilities spend less time and money searching for and replacing missing medical equipment,” said Jake Freedman, CEO and founder of PD1 Medical. “Keeping track of equipment inventory in a fast-paced and high-traffic environment is a challenge. Hospitals spend thousands each year confronting this issue with technologies, such as real-time locating systems (RTLS) and computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS). However, a large percentage of the equipment inventory doesn’t get tracked (e.g. device accessories, patient cables, probes, etc.) and when missing, can cause a possibly life threatening disruption to clinical workflow.”
PD1 Medical has worked with the health care community to develop a simple yet versatile solution to this ongoing issue called the Med Tether. The Med Tether is an easy-to-use adjustable and reusable security tether. It provides a simple approach to securing equipment so the equipment is available to clinical staff when they need it most.
TechNation learned more about PD1 Medical in an interview with Freedman.

By doing so, we hope to have a positive impact and do our part in our joint fight against the COVID-19 virus.
A: We’re looking forward to growing the company and customer base and having a real impact on patient care. We also hope to continue to raise money to give back whether it’s to aid people during the pandemic or another cause that supports the health care community.
