Provizio® SEM Scanner named in TIME’s list of the 100 BEST inventions of 2020

TIME Magazine 100 Best Inventions 2020

TIME has revealed its annual list of the 100 Best Inventions for 2020- BBI are delighted to announce that the Provizio SEM Scanner was included in this highly prestigious and sort after listing!

For the 2020 list, TIME solicited nominations both from its editors and correspondents around the world and through an online application process. It then evaluated them on factors including originality, effectiveness, ambition and impact.

The Provizio SEM Scanner and BBI meet all of these factors – it is the only hand-held wireless device, that identifies increased risk of PI/PU 5 days* earlier than visual skin assessment1 and is the only SEM Scanner that acts as an adjunct to routine clinical skin assessment.

BBI would like to thank all the healthcare practitioners, researchers and colleagues who have contributed over the past 10 years to the development of the SEM assessment technology without their dedication, hard work and passion this achievement would not have been possible.

Provizio SEM Scanner can be integrated into your clinical practice with minimal interaction, supported by a virtual education platform with care pathways from existing users to make adoption fast, easy and successful.
