With advanced technical skills and expertise in manufacturing medical equipment, a Korean global digital healthcare SME has been leading the medical equipment industry for more than 20 years. The company is looking for collaboration with global partners who can act as a dealer or distributor to supply high-accuracy Body Composition Analyzers (BCA) and Blood Pressure Monitor (BPM) to local markets.
Since its foundation in 1993, the Korean company has been leading the domestic markets of blood pressure monitor and body composition analyzer for more than 20 years, with innovative technology in medical device manufacturing and software development by running its own R&D centre. The company has launched the company’s specialized brand of medical diagnostic products, which includes body composition analysers and automatic blood pressure monitors to secure competitiveness in the digital healthcare industry. The products are already exported globally to medical diagnostic centres, hospitals, diet clinics, and university laboratories in North America, Asia, Europe and South America. The company’s professional brand of diagnostic medical equipment is proud to introduce its medical devices help to promote and maintain a healthy lifestyle through regular diagnosis and accurate analysis as below: 1. Body Composition Analyzer (BCA) Traditionally, obesity has been measured using several methods such as Body Mass Index (BMI), obesity index, or skin fold, however, these methods were difficult to gain accurate analysis on obesity. To overcome the problem, the Korean brand has successfully provided stylish body composition analyser series, manufactured by the parent company, using methods including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), underwater weighing and Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). The products are perfectly ideal to analyse the components of body compositions using the impedance method with comprehensive evaluation. The products encompass three main features but not limited to the following: 1) High consistency with DEXA Currently, DEXA is considered the gold standard as it can accurately analyse one’s fat, muscles, and bones without any radiation exposure. One of the BCAs utilizes the most advanced Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology to provide accurate and reliable results which have been validated by DEXA analysis. 2) Multi-Frequency Analysis The Korean company’s BCA can use up to six frequencies between 1 kHz and 1,000kHz simultaneously for accurate measurement of one’s intracellular water, extracellular water, and total body water. A low frequency below 100kHz is used to analyse extracellular water as it flows along the cell membrane, whereas a high frequency above 100kHz is utilized to check total body water as it flows through the cell membrane. 3) Eight-Point Touch Electrodes The products have adapted the eight-point touch electrodes method which is highly accurate, despite its complexity. Eight electrodes can be placed on the hands, feet, wrists or ankles to analyse body composition stably. 2. Blood Pressure Monitor (BPM) There are several studies that measuring blood on both arms at once is a simple way to detect narrowing and hardening of the blood vessels that supply the legs and feet – a condition known as peripheral vascular disease or peripheral artery disease. The Korean company has developed the world’s first dual-arm automatic sphygmomanometer system to measure blood pressure from both arms at the same time to get a more comprehensive result. According to the WHO recommendation, if the maximum blood pressures taken from both arms differ by 20 mmHg, it may indicate a risk factor of circulatory disease. The highly advanced product using easy-to-use one-touch button let users to identify any blood pressure differences quickly and easily at an early stage with excellent accuracy. The company also offers the BMP that displays the analysis results and QR code on the LCD without printing out the result sheet and let user to use a smartphone or another mobile device to transfer, save, and show date. The company is currently seeking global business partners in order to secure distribution channels, especially in the field of fitness, medical or healthcare. Considering partnership types could be distribution services agreement.
Type (e.g. company, R&D institution…), field of industry and Role of Partner Sought: 
The potential international partner is expected to be able to act as a local dealer, agent or distributor, especially in the field of fitness, medical or healthcare. The ideal task of the partners will be in charge of suppling the devices to the local market.
