Hinckley Medical creates first-of-its-kind patient scale for EMS professionals to use in the field, reducing patient door-to-needle time, winning the 2022 Innovation of the Year award at the EMS World Expo.

ORLANDO, FL – Hinckley Medical’s OneWeight TM Universal Gurney Scale was selected as a 2022 EMS World Expo Innovation Winner at the largest Emergency MedicalServices (EMS) event in the world.

OneWeight seamlessly attaches to the face of any existing ambulance gurney and uses thesimplicity of a common scale to measure accurate patient weights in the field. When pairing theOneWeight system and the OneDose application together, patient weights automatically uploadto the application, and calculate the correct dose for EMS professionals to administer to thepatient. This product reduces critical door to needle time and increases dosing accuracy byusing actual body weight, instead of the current system, estimation.

Approximately 1 in 5 EMS-related medication errors result in patient harm. For example,prehospital dosing errors affect about 56,000 US children annually.

Hinckley Medical’s OneWeight system allows for more efficient, accurate, and reliableprehospital care in various situations. Some other cases in which the OneWeight/OneDoseproduct can be used include:

– Hospital notification

– Patient transfer

– Dialysis

After two years, they bring the OneWeight system to market in 2022.
