Hemorrhage is the cause of more than one-third of maternal deaths. A lack of transfusable blood compounds and exacerbates this problem. Hemacon, an early-stage high technology medical devices company, has developed new innovative technology based on hollow micro fibers that allows for the immediate separation of blood, in even the most remote of locations and without the need for electricity. The system works purely with gravity in the company's ProBlood unit. This makes it possible to establish mini Blood Banks in even the most remote of maternity clinics and impact dramatically on the maternal mortality statistics at these locations.
