Mandaluyong - HIMEX Corporation joined the 61st Philippine Urological Association (PUA) Annual Convention on November 22-24, 2018 which was held at the Edsa Shangri-la Hotel.

In the three-day convention, HIMEX Corporation promoted its urological and ultrasound products. Brought to the event and displayed at the booth were HITACHI’s ARIETTA Prologue and Arietta V60 as well as DIREX Group's Integra ESWL. The urologists who visited our booth showed interest in the DIREX Group's ESWL, Holmium laser, and HITACHI's ARIETTA Prologue. 

The ARIETTA Prologue offers superior imaging quality and is equipped with functions that improve efficiency and support rapid, accurate diagnosis when and where needed. ARIETTA Prologue has been designed especially for the point-of-care (POC) ultrasound market. Thanks to its intuitive and simple operation, it fulfils the fundamental role of a portable ultrasound system, bringing the clinical benefits of diagnostic ultrasound into new areas of healthcare.

Meanwhile, HITACHI's Mid-range Ultrasound ARIETTA V60 provides scanning comfort for all ultrasound users and their patients. The ARIETTA V60 has been designed with ultimate usability. It is equipped with multiple functions dedicated to each diagnostic field, supporting more accurate and efficient diagnoses. From the extensive range of available transducers, you can be sure to find the one that is appropriate for your examination.

DIREX Group's Integra Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy (ESWL) incorporates a novel shockwave technology, innovative imaging and a revolutionary architecture oriented toward fragmentation effectiveness and accurate imaging. Integra is a single unit, including a fluoroscopy system, treatment table and shockwave unit all in one. This architecture dramatically reduces coupling, set-up and treatment time. 

Aside from the three medical equipment mentioned above, HIMEX also distributes DIREX Group's Themis 30W Holmium laser. Themis, and its "Fibrex" fiber optic delivery system, are intended for use in surgical urological procedures as well as soft tissue treatments used in general surgery. The Themis system is a holmium laser with 2.1 micron wavelength emission which is highly absorbed by water and soft tissue.

HIMEX Corporation, along with its partner HITACHI, Philippine hospitals and diagnostic centers, and doctors will continue to improve the healthcare industry of the Philippines with its top-quality products and reliable sales service.
