RIVERSIDE, Calif. (April 30, 2007) – The recent EMS Today conference and tradeshow in Baltimore showcased new Luxfer Medical 3,000-psi Voyage™ and Odyssey™ cylinder product lines to a record-breaking number of visitors.
Now in its 25th year, EMS Today is a leading healthcare event for emergency medical service first responders, including paramedics and firefighters.
Lisa Stano, Luxfer’s medical market manager, said: “EMS Today, as always, was a highly successful exhibition for our Luxfer Medical products. The event provided us a unique opportunity to meet with those who are already benefitting from Luxfer lightweight cylinders and to demonstrate increased capacity and weight saving advantages to those who are still using heavier alternatives.”
Made from Luxfer’s patented L7X® higher-strength aluminium alloy and up to 40% lighter than steel cylinders, Luxfer’s Voyage cylinders reduce the risk of job-related injuries during patient and equipment handling, especially in high-rise and confined spaces.
Odyssey carbon composite cylinders are up to 70% lighter than conventional steel cylinders, making them ideal for resuscitation and pain relief in emergency situations. Widely used around the world by paramedics and other first-response teams, these ultra-lightweight, high-performance cylinders combine strength and durability and in a very compact, portable package.
Since both Voyage and Odyssey cylinders can be charged up to 3,000 psi, they offer a 50% increase in cylinder capacity compared to conventional cylinders.
