  • About
Company description

Fosmo Med is out to reduce the overall cost of sterile solution through technology. Currently, saline IV solution is over 99% water, making it expensive to ship. Often the logistical cost of shipping one liter of sterile solution can be 8-10x of the product cost or up to 100x if shipping overseas. Often this simple medical device is too expensive to ship, so millions of people are dying from dehydration related disease like Cholera.

Fosmo Med's Maji, field hydration system for IV use, is shipped sans water. Then the bag can be filled with any fresh water, clean or dirty, and in few hours FDA level sterile solution is produced within the bag without any external power, pressure or even gravity. The shipping cost would be rediced by 75-80%.
