“In pursuit of finding a solution for managing COVID-19 symptoms through non-invasive methods, we have partnered with Nanotronics Health, LLC, for the sale and distribution of the nHaleTM. This partnership makes nHaleTM accessible in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia (MENASA) region, benefiting patients and health care providers with an affordable, high-quality solution,” said Zarmina Jafar, Head of Strategy at THB Global.

Nanotronics Health, LLC, obtained Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for nHaleTM for use in traditional healthcare facilities, spaces converted for the care of large numbers of COVID-19 patients, and in at-home settings with a doctor’s prescription. This authorization includes the optional use of supplemental oxygen in tandem with nHale™ when a qualified medical professional prescribes it.

Non-invasive ventilation is critical for COVID-19 patient care in the hospital and beyond. To meet this need, Nanotronics Health, LLC, leveraged Nanotronics’ deep in-house expertise, incorporating advanced AI, Intelligent Factory Control (IFC) and sophisticated engineering to conceive, design and manufacture nHaleTM in under 90 days.

“We developed nHaleTM to meet the urgent need for non-invasive respiratory options for patients suffering from COVID-19,” said Julie Orlando, President of Nanotronics Health, LLC. “We designed for quality, comfort and ease of use, making nHaleTM available at a fraction of the cost of other non-invasive ventilators.”

Nanotronics Health, LLC, developed and designed nHale™ to assist spontaneously breathing adults suffering from COVID-19 disease. It is intended for use in non-life-threatening situations, such as a patient in need of breathing assistance but not in need of invasive ventilatory support based on standard medical protocols.
