To earn the coveted title of a JEMS Hot Product, a product has to be not only innovative, but practical. Our team of eight judges at this year’s EMS Today Conference and Exposition consisted of EMS product specialists, physicians, educators, managers and paramedics. The team reviewed a host of product contenders-from vehicles to equipment to mobile apps to training aids-all released within the 12 months before the conference.
Each judge reviewed products designed to not only improve your ability to deliver optimal emergency medical care to sick and injured patients, but also allow EMS agencies to do it safely, more efficiently and with enhanced comfort for the patient.
This year, the EMS Today Hot Products review team reviewed and rated 58 products submitted by 52 companies. Each product was rated on a 1-10 scale in four distinct categories:
- Ease of use; and
- Need in the EMS setting.
