Diemme is founded
Having acquired decades of experience in the sector, Guido Santus leaves one of his previous companies, acquiring its medical branch with the aim of embarking on a new business venture. This marks the start of a long path of growth and success for Diemme (DIEMME Dispositivi Medici s.r.l.). The acquisition of Pennine Healthcare is a first key step towards securing major products and brands in the area of disposable medical devices, the company subsequently establishing itself as a household name among professionals in the Italian public and private sector healthcare market.
The arrival of a first partner with 20 years of experience in the operating theatre ensures that our products are evaluated and selected even more carefully by those with a practical and direct understanding of the needs of workers and patients.
Daily” Patient Hygiene System
First major Italian project: Daily Care, hygiene solutions for bedridden patients. A range of single-use wipes impregnated with a cleansing solution rich in active ingredients, to be used on their own or in combination with other wipes, designed for non-self-sufficient patients in intensive care units, care home guests or homecare patients.
Innovation in Normothermia for intensive care patients
The new "DMWARM” method, conceived and developed in Italy to maintain the regular body temperature of intensive care patients throughout the procedure (warming process from pre-anaesthesia to reawakening), enabled us to get familiar with the market dedicated to anaesthesia and recovery and, following this experience, to carry out research into increasingly cutting-edge products in the area of normothermia.
“Joymax” spinal microsurgery
A comprehensive and innovative series of disposable products for endoscopic spine surgery, particularly for minimally invasive surgery on herniated disks, which offers enormous advantages for workers and patients.
Locoregional Anaesthesia and Ophthalmology
With our logistics partner SGM, a genuine "Sister Company", through the creation of a suitably certified Cleanroom we began producing and assembling a procedural set dedicated to Anaesthesia (spinal and epidural) and Ophthalmology (cataracts, intravitreal, etc.), covering all requirements in the operating field with the addition of lots of personalised medical devices dedicated to these specialist sectors.
Viscopack and Gladius Project
The high level of specialisation acquired by our Ophthalmology professionals has enabled us to improve some of the key products used in ophthalmic surgery procedures. To date, we have achieved the following results: "Viscopack", personalised set of viscoelastic devices "Gladius", the first Made in Italy patented protected ophthalmic scalpel.
