Aiber, a digital first-response kit for the Aviation and Maritime industries, has announced that it has received a £1.6 million investment from Business Growth Fund (BGF).
Aiber communicates on-scene emergency data to professional clinical service providers and was designed to be used by non-medical professionals, such as cabin crew, to confidently respond to medical emergencies while in the air without having to make costly diversions and emergency landings. The software can help with medical issues such as burns, allergic reactions and potential heart complaints.
Anne Roberts, co-founder and chief executive of Aiber said: “As we continue to scale Aiber and its affordable one-touch technology, this investment will allow us to accelerate the roll out of our potentially life-saving solution to more customers in our target sectors."
"Whether in the air or at sea, a medical event in these situations can be incredibly stressful and isolating for those tasked with responding, and we are confident Aiber can reduce the burden and improve passenger health outcomes.”
The latest cash boost completes a £2 million fundraising round which involved existing investors Scottish Enterprise and Equity Gap.
Keith Barclay, BGF investor, added: “We are pleased to complete this investment at an exciting moment of growth for Aiber. The company’s pioneering med-tech software product has a significant addressable market, and we look forward to supporting their push into new areas.”
Aiber can also be used by the aviation and maritime industries to drive greater efficiency, automate reports for crew training as well as audit and litigation protection.
