Medical Monitoring Systems trading as Meditherm was formed in 1991 in Brisbane Australia, in order to provide thermal imaging services to hospitals and other medical professionals.
It soon became apparent that there were a number of shortcomings in the industrial IR thermographic equipment that was available to us with respect to clinical use, particularly with the software capabilities of image manipulation, storage, retrieval and report writing. Also many features necessary for industrial use, are not needed for clinical applications, thus contributing to the excessively high, and uneconomic (for many medical applications) cost of the equipment.
Meditherm approached the major manufacturers of IR thermography equipment to see if there was interest in modifying their industrial systems to better suit the needs of clinical thermography.
We submitted that by removing unnecessary features to reduce the cost would result in DITI becoming economic to a far greater medical market than at present.
Only one company was prepared to make design modifications and manufacture a camera to the specifications suitable for our system ----
The result is the Meditherm vet2000, a unit that makes clinical thermography an economic reality!
Meditherm, is currently active in daily clinical practice and many areas of medical research.
Meditherm provides all levels of support and training to thermographers from technician upwards.
Meditherm will continue to build on the experience that has been gained over the last twenty years or more that thermography has been developing as a medical modality, by harnessing the experience of our directors, consultants, associates and the pioneers of medical thermography. We believe that we are in a unique position to supply medical thermographic equipment and the necessary clinical backup, support and training to the healthcare industry.
