We make a life by what we give

Life is uncertain. Like a wave in the ocean what goes up goes down and the pattern continues. So what defines our way of life? Most of us would have experienced few life changing experiences which defines our principals in life. Selvaraj Bovas and Edgar Paul Jones who were childhood friends once saw an old man on the streets, a very common sight in India. Instead of only sympathising like most of us they chose to act. They took him home, cleaned and provided him with food but could not save him. They later realised he had dementia and had lost his way. His family had been looking out for him only to find out he is no more. Several incidents of old and ailing people dumped and abused by their own children shook them and led to the start of ‘Little drops – An old age home for the destitute’. Our team had the opportunity to visit this home.

Old people and children are alike.  It’s very rightly said that the most terrible poverty is loneliness. They just wanted company, love and affection. They got attached to us in a very short span of time. Some had gruesome stories to share with tears in their eyes while some remained calm with a smile.

Thanks to our company as a part of our CSR we had donated beds to them. Our employees who were involved in the manufacturing of these beds were moved seeing the result of the time they had taken to make these beds especially for them.

When we stepped out of the home we only had one question, our parents shaped us to what we are today and we in turn can’t do our part in their final stage of life? Has inhumaneness creeped into us shutting our conscious and feelings?

If any of you out there would like to help these bunch of lovely people in the home, do visit their website.

All about Phoenix’s Ob-Gyn Squat Table….

Giving birth is an important event in every mother’s life. It is important that she experience the greatest comfort during this event. The position she adopts during labour plays a significant role here. You will probably be surprised at the amount of evidence that is out there for the benefits of making changes in the position of a mother during labour and birthing.

A medical expert has pointed out that for centuries, women have given birth in various positions that reduce pain. One of the most effective of these positions is the squatting position. In this position the birth canal becomes flexible and relaxes during the birthing experience. Cuts and tears are reduced in this position.

An age-old technique for the modern labour room

Researchers have found that squatting helps during labour in different ways. Here is a quick list: (1) According to a study conducted by Gardosi and colleagues, squatting shortens the second stage of labour by 11 minutes. (2) The squatting position is assisted by gravity. In this position, the dimensions of the bony pelvis, in both the transverse and anterior/posterior directions, are increased by as much as 28%. (3) The squatting position may result in fewer instrumental deliveries and episiotomies.

The age-old technique of squatting is, therefore, very relevant today. The typical Ob/Gym delivery table in the modern labour room, however, is not very suitable for the squatting position.

The Squat Table

The Squat Table from Phoenix has been specifically designed for comfortable birthing positions. The table supports squatting, lithotomy and the supine position.

The Phoenix Squat Table has been designed for the convenience of those assisting with a delivery as well. The physician can control the orientation of this with an electronic foot-operated remote. At the press of a button, the angle of the table can be adjusted up to 180° according to the requirement of the delivery. Its height can be adjusted to as low as 16 inches so that the mother can comfortably place herself on it during labour. Subsequently the height of the bed can be raised to up to 6 feet so that doctors and nurses have easy access.

The table readily converts to the squatting position with a pair of leg supports. With a simple change of these supports to calf supports, the table supports lithotomy.

The Squat Table comes in different soothing colours to match any labour room.

I learned about Phoenix Medical Systems in 2007 while I was a student
at IIT Delhi. Since then PMS has worked tirelessly with us to realize our research in usable, affordable and high quality products that can be used by people. Over the next 10 years, we have collaborated on several projects in the assistive technologies domain. It has been a privilege to work with the PMS teams at R&D, factory, operations and sales division. I have been amazed by the strong value system and desire to create products that transform lives coupled with immense focus on work ethics, productivity and innovation. I wish the PMS team good luck for the coming year

It has been a pleasure to work with Phoenix Medical Systems for the last two years. Phoenix have excellent facilities and I have been impressed with their commitment to expanding and improving on their manufacturing capacity. However by far the biggest advantage to working with Phoenix is the high quality of the people who work there. The team at Phoenix are very professional and knowledgeable. I have been impressed with the high level of skill – from the engineers through to the fabricators in the factory. Everyone at Phoenix has been very helpful and welcoming which has made working with them in India both productive and enjoyable for me personally

Our Pledge for Preemies

All lives have equal value. A life lost would have grown to become the next Abdul Kalam or Indira Gandhi.  The world prematurity awareness month might have ended but for us Phoenix’ians everyday is a constant reminder of prematurity.

At Phoenix , we understand we have the responsibility of giving them a tomorrow.  We gathered together and took up a pledge for preemies to do our good work even better.

Our Pledge

‘Phoenix has given me an opportunity to serve the newborns.

I pledge I will give the best of my ability in saving every preemie on our equipment by doing my work with dedication , honest and care. My sincerity at work will reflect in happiness of families and help contribute to the society.’

It was overwhelming to listen to employees share their personal stories on surviving prematurity and express their joy on working for Phoenix in various creative art forms.

‘The rays of the sun rising in the east sheds life into the world every day similarly only if a preemie is placed in our incubator will it’s life shine ! I’m happy to work for a technologically sound company like Phoenix’ said Daniel , a employee from the initial days the company .

We have a beautiful responsibility of showing a mother’s love through our equipment when these tiny fighters need it the most. We are proud of the work we do at Phoenix!
