PRESS RELEASE Gradian Health Systems Announces Partnership with Canon Virginia Inc CVI Gradian Health SystemsNew York, NY, September 6, 2022 | Gradian Health Systems (Gradian) is proud to announce a strategic relationship with Canon Virginia Inc. (CVI). This announcement marks the collaboration of two mission driven organizations, with a common goal of addressing disparities within healthcare globally.

This collaboration builds on Gradian’s decade plus work developing and supporting medical technology in resource-limited settings and CVI’s 37 years of established manufacturing excellence and medical device expertise. CVI will assume manufacturing operations for Gradian’s flagship product, the UAM, an anesthesia machine designed to work in the absence of electricity and medical oxygen, and establish manufacturing operations for Gradian’s newest product – the K-O2. CVI plans to be in full scale production of both products by the end of 2022. The UAM and K-O2 are specifically designed to better enable access to anesthesia and oxygen therapy, respectively, by addressing resource constraints that often prevent medical providers from being able to deliver continuous care for patients.
