For more than four decades, SCHILLER has been committed to the fight against sudden cardiac death. While the most established manufacturers still sold heavy and bulky emergency devices, SCHILLER launched a handy emergency electrocardioscope that was ten times lighter. Simultaneously, the company not only made a name for itself, but also set new standards. Two years later, the smallest emergency ECG device with integrated printer followed.
A built-in microcomputer allowed the automatic measurement and interpretation of the ECG. This in turn enabled the early detection of heart disorders. Thanks to suitable therapies and rehabilitation measures, physicians can thus protect people of all age groups from sudden cardiac death. As success increased, so did the product portfolio: devices such as blood pressure monitors and spirometers completed the product range, while complete diagnostic stations and monitoring devices were being produced for clinics and medical practices.
However, resting on its laurels is not an option for SCHILLER because innovation is a priority for this Swiss company. More innovations are close to the testing phase. In spite of the company's continuous growth, size is not as important to SCHILLER as is strength. It relies on a motivated team, creativity, openness to new ideas and pioneer courage. "The Art of Diagnostics" is infinitely creative and it inspires us to continuously improve our products.
