Vikram Sanghvi, Managing Director, Schiller Healthcare India Private Limited
Schiller, founded in 1974 by Alfred E. Schiller, is a successful group with 30 subsidiaries and a global sales network. Today, Schiller is a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of devices for cardiopulmonary diagnostics, defibrillation, and patient monitoring as well as software solutions for the medical industry. Currently, Schiller India's (subsidiary of Schiller AG) product range covers critical care, cardiology, radiology, telemedicine, cardiopulmonary, anesthesia, and surgery.
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 automatic measurement and interpretation of 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 added to the product range, while complete diagnostic stations and monitoring devices were being produced for clinics and medical practices. At Schiller, innovation has always been a priority. More innovations are on-going.
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.
