Awassa, Ethiopia – SIGMA Medizin-Technik delivered a Neurowerk EEG to the Shashemene General Hospital in the Awesa town of Awassa (West Arsi/Oromia region).
Our collegue, Islam Salah, trained the employees of the Shashemene General Hospital in dealing with the new NEUROWERK device.
In 2018, we were able to equip the Epilepsy Center in Shashemem with a NEUROWERK EEG including video extension. The hospital in Ethiopia maintains a high quality patient care and has a good reputation in the field of neurophysiology.
Our colleagues from the Middle East office travelled to Awassa to finalize the NEUROWERK Video EEG System installation, which was delivered at the end of 2018.
Our engineer for the MENA region, Mr. Islam Salah, monitored the on-site delivery and took care of the successful implementation and installation of the hardware and software
In addition to the successful installation of the NEUROWERK EEG, at the beginning of 2019, Prof. Charles Hall, Head of the Epilepsy Center at the Shashemene Hospital, and Dr. Karl Strobl organized together with our team a practical EEG course for the doctors and the medical staff of the hospital.
The electroencephalography workshop included theoretical basics and intensive practical training at the NEUROWERK EEG. Our colleague Mr Salah was able to give the participating doctors and employees valuable practical tips for their daily work during the test operation on the device. All participants were very impressed by the user-friendly and intuitive operation of the device and the high quality of the recorded signals.
SIGMA Medizin-Technik thanks the hospital management as well as the participating physicians of the Shashemene Hospital for their interest in our products.
We would also like to thank Sr. Ahmed Ebiso, Ms. Abera and Mohamed Tura for the perfect organization of the workshop and we look forward to many more joint projects in the future.
