History of SALVIA medical, from humble beginnings to ventilator specialist
Salvia was founded in the 1950s as a company for complex measurement and control technology solutions for sophisticated industrial applications. Very soon, the company was bought up by the pharmaceutical industry and initially produced operation and control systems for dialysis devices. By expanding with its own R&D department, complete dialysis devices and hemofiltration systems were developed and produced.In course of the pharmaceutical industry focussing on the core business, the company was spun off as ‘Salvia Regel- und Medizintechnik GmbH’ and finally in 1993 to ‘Salvia Lifetec Geräte für Medizintechnik GmbH & Co. KG’. The synchronization of patients and machines was given a higher priority as intensive care ventilation increasingly became a standard medical procedure. The company had the control technology expertise to develop optimal solutions for the ventilation of patients. This opened up a new business area, which would ultimately become our exclusive specialization: Ventilation devices for clinical ventilation and respiratory therapy in application areas such as ICUs, IMCs, emergency rooms, anesthesia, general care units, and in home care. In course of the reorientation and advancement of the brand Salvia the name was changed in September 2013 from Salvia Lifetec to SALVIA medical®.

The range of applied technologies includes state-of-the-art processes as well as devices for all modes of application. Our portfolio includes neonatal ventilators, anesthesia ventilators as well as ventilation and respiratory therapy devices for intensive care. This is our current product range in detail:

As an OEM partner, SALVIA medical develops and produces ventilators and respiratory therapy devices for major global medical technology corporations. However, devices sold under the company’s own name play an increasingly important role in the German and Asian market as well as in India. Nevertheless, SALVIA medical is and will remain “made in Germany.” We are fully committed to our business location in Germany that supports our company’s strengths: our pooled scientific and technological research and development expertise as well as production quality that meets the highest standards.
