EMS World is proud to present the finalists for the 2019 EMS World Innovation Awards. The Innovation Awards program recognizes the industry’s most pioneering products of the year that have the potential to transform EMS care.
An independent panel of judges consisting of EMS World editorial advisory board members evaluated each entry on its innovation, features, and applicability to EMS care. Products must be new or have undergone significant design changes since August 2018.
From this pool of 30 finalists, judges will meet one-on-one with company representatives at EMS World Expo to demo each product, learn about its application, and determine whether it is worthy of this esteemed honor. The 20 top-scoring products will be named 2019 Innovation Award winners and profiled in the December 2019 issue of EMS World.
If you’re attending EMS World Expo in New Orleans Oct. 14–18, visit the following exhibitors to see how their products, technologies, and services will transform the delivery of prehospital care.
Here are the finalists for 2019, listed in alphabetical order. EMS World congratulates the finalists for this accomplishment.
