Flexmort have been asked to present at the Open University’s Death, Dying & Disposal 11 Conference: Where Theory Meets Practice (5/9/13-8/9/13) in Milton Keynes, UK. The subject of the presentation is:
Once a person dies then cooling the deceased within a few hours is required according to NHS guidance. Up until recently, the only option was large mortuary refrigerators and cold rooms. For people who lose a baby or child, this was distressing and also these large refrigerated mortuary systems provides difficulties for hospices and funeral directors. Flexmort started through a University of Warwick Science Park programme and developed a new way of cooling the deceased. Within 3yrs this start-up company now supplies cooling units to over 60% of UK hospitals, as well as hospices and funeral directors. The Director, Simon Rothwell, talks about how Flexmort’s technology has helped in this area and how technology has helped to change attitudes in dealing with bereavement.
