  Maple Hope Delivers 30 MOVES® SLC™ Life-Support Systems to Ukraine

We are pleased to share that Maple Hope Foundation has secured and successfully delivered a donation of 30 MOVES® SLC™ systems to aid in the treatment of critically injured patients in Ukraine. This cutting-edge technology will be used by surgeons, anesthesiologists, and forward medical personnel for casualty and patient care, transport of patients by land and air, and in other critical care environments.

Developed by Thornhill Medical, MOVES® SLC™ is the world’s only micro-integrated life support system that allows doctors and first responders to provide care in the most challenging conditions. The portable, battery-operated system is both lightweight and rugged, and combines an oxygen concentrator, a unique O2-conserving ventilator, suction, and complete patient monitoring into a single, compact system. These innovative systems were donated to Maple Hope Foundation by the Government of Canada.

The MOVES® SLC™ technology has been in use by medical personnel in Ukraine since May 2022 and this latest donation is welcomed by medical experts at Maple Hope Foundation and in Ukraine. They emphasize its dire need and potential to expand the capacity for casualty and patient care in the region.

“The MOVES® SLC™ life support module is a highly effective and practical means of saving the lives of the wounded during military operations in Ukraine in 2022. It is modern, high-tech equipment that is extremely necessary to save the lives of the wounded in the conditions of Ukraine’s war with the Russian Federation,” said Oleksandr Bugai, Deputy Commander of the Medical Forces and Chief Anesthesiologist of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
