Area Sales Manager, Nordics, MEQU / 1843

The Company
°MEQU is a Danish MedTech company that manufactures the most effective portable blood and IV fluid warmer for use in emergency medical services and hospitals. °MEQU was founded in 2011 by Ulrik Krogh Andersen. Ulrik Krogh Andersen, who is now the CEO of °MEQU, developed the °M Warmer System following a request from the Danish military to the  Danish Technology University (DTU) to help prevent hypothermia and improve the survival and recovery rate of severely injured patients.

The °M Warmer System has a minimalistic and user-friendly design that reduces the risk of human errors and delays. It won the red dot design award in 2018 for its high-tech and user-friendly expression.

Today the °M Warmer System is widely used by emergency services, hospitals, and military medics in Europe, Australia, and the USA.

°MEQU aims at making it possible to provide warm blood to any bleeding patient – regardless of where the injury takes place. Being in a remote place far from a hospital should never justify giving patients cold fluids. You can read more at
