pfm medical and Unomedical (ConvaTec) - partners from the start

Unomedical (today: ConvaTec) is one of the pioneers of single-use disposable medical products. The company was established in Denmark in 1964 under the name of PharmaPlast DK and was one of the first in the world to use plastic as a material for medical products. After the merger with ConvaTec in 2008 the company is called ConvaTec now too. 

Since the establishment of pfm medical in 1971, we have been the exclusive distributor of products by this manufacturer to German hospitals. Our long-standing partnership has led to a number of successful joint developments, e.g. the closed urine-measurement system UnoMeter™ Safeti™ Plus or the Cathy™ suction catheter.
