In many countries, authorities and competent institutions have classified seca and its medical technology as system relevant to support health systems in the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic. Due to the current situation, the pressure in emergency rooms and hospitals is very high and the need for medical technology has continued to increase. The company is maintaining production and expanding capacities to best serve this demand and to contribute to the fight against the corona virus.
Particularly in the current critical situation, doctors need exact information about the health status of their patients, for example to calculate the tidal volume settings for ventilators and the dosage of anesthetics. Reliable measurement of vital signs such as temperature, oxygen saturation, blood pressure and heart rate are also essential for monitoring in emergency rooms, outpatient clinics, doctors' offices and hospitals. seca has taken measures to increase production capacity for medical scales and vital signs monitors. The safety of the employees in the production facilities has the highest priority. For example, they all wear breathing masks and work in a two-shift system to minimize contact in the production site. "Our employees know how important it is to keep production going right now," says Frederik Vogel, Managing Director Technology at seca. "We would like to thank everyone for their willingness to make this contribution and for their cautiousness in their daily work". The company will continue to review and implement all measures to ensure the ability to supply its medical products and to support healthcare systems worldwide in the fight against the corona virus.
