A healthcare company that specializes in manufacturing medical devices. It was founded in 1904 and has locations worldwide.

Getinge is a global healthcare technology company with products and solutions for topics such as acute care therapies, surgical workflows, and life sciences.

Product

The company offers products for hospital contexts and life sciences purposes. Products that are manufactured for hospitals include advanced monitoring systems, endovascular solutions, extracorporeal life support machines, operating tables, mechanical ventilation, consumables, workflow software, and more. Some examples of life science products are aseptic transfer systems and decontamination devices.

COVID-19

The pandemic involving COVID-19 in 2020 created a large demand for ventilators as one of the symptoms of the virus is shortness of breath. Getinge's anesthesia machines have the potential to be repurposed as ventilators in intensive care units. The machines are meant only to be used in a hospital setting and are not meant to be used as long-term ventilators. In order to meet the demand, the company temporarily increased production by 60%.
