Scientist and entrepreneur - 10. Arthur Zang: a growing business

Associated to the Cardiopad, Himore Medical offers a complete environment for patient care and monitoring.

"With this solution I founded a company: HIMORE Medical. It is based in Yaounde, Cameroon. It is the first medical equipment manufacturing company in Cameroon.

The employees are electronics and computer engineers, accountants and salespeople who work every day to produce medical devices and make them available to hospitals.

Based on the use of this device, we have also designed a public health programme that allows patients, through an annual subscription, to benefit from an unlimited number of cardiac examinations in all hospitals where Cardiopad is installed in Cameroon.

Every subscriber to this service has a card, as you can see here. The system is now running in several hospitals in Cameroon. We have already sold more than 150 Cardiopads, including 30 in Cameroon. The device's patent was filed in 2011. A total of more than 6,000 examinations have already been performed with the Cardiopad. And more than 1,700 patients have benefited from the Africa Cardia Care service we have created.

Thanks to the different developments of the project, we have won several awards. The Rolex Awards in 2014, in 2016 the Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation, organized by the Royal Academy of Engineers in London. And this year we won the ODES prize from the Fondation Pierre Fabre.

That's the current team at HIMORE Medical: we are more than 12 people who work full-time for the company and we collaborate with a network of cardiologists who are responsible for producing interpretations.
