The Nippy 2 ventilator was manufactured from 1995 to 2005. It has therefore been out of production for over 7 years. Unfortunately, we are finding it increasingly difficult to source parts for this product and therefore are only able to offer reduced servicing, maintenance and support for this product.
We have therefore decided, with regret, to make the Nippy 2 ventilator obsolete from 31st August 2013.
In the meantime, we will continue to provide parts, service kits and support for the Nippy 2.
The Nippy 1 ventilator was manufactured from 1987 to 1995. It has therefore been out of production for approximately 17 years. Unfortunately, we are finding it increasingly difficult to source parts for this product and, therefore, are only able to offer reduced servicing, maintenance and support for this product.
We have therefore decided, with regret, to make the Nippy 1 ventilator obsolete from 30th June 2013.
In the meantime, we will continue to provide parts, service kits and support for the Nippy 1.
Please do contact us with any queries regarding this.
Patients in Guernsey benefit from a NIPPY Clearway purchased through charitable funds. Taken from the article:
“A Guernsey charity has received enough cash to buy a machine which helps patients to cough.
The Motor Neurone and Neuro Concern charity has taken delivery of a NIPPY Clearway which helps patients clear their lungs.
The portable machine means patients can now use the machine at home, rather than travelling to hospital.”
2012 marks B&D Electromedical’s 25th year of designing and manufacturing pioneering respiratory products.
During these 25 years of business, B&D have brought to market five generations of the NIPPY ventilator platform.
In 2011, B&D launched the NIPPY Clearway, a versatile and dynamic airway clearance device, which has been received with great success.
We are very much looking forward to the next 25 years of business and beyond, with exciting innovation.
