Never before – but I will do it again

It takes heart – and a good pair of legs – to ride to Paris on a bike in only 7 days. Medicologic easily agreed to sponsor Stig Jørgensen, CEO of Medicon Valley Alliance, when he joined Team Rynkeby in the now classical charity-ride to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation.

In 2014, Team Rynkeby donated DKK 36.128 million to the fight against childhood cancer – of which DKK 23.498 million went to the Danish childhood cancer foundation, Børnecancerfonden.

In his late fifties, Stig Jørgensen has never before enjoyed cycling as a sport. Now, he has been training twice weekly at spinning since November and with the coming of spring has continued training outdoors. By early July, Stig and his teammates from Rigshospitalet – Team Riget – will be able to ride the approximately 1,200 kilometers from Copenhagen to Paris in just 7 days.

Outsourcing – a Smooth Operation

Outsourcing is often a cost efficient solution. QMS is no exception. When Otovation decided to outsource their quality management for their entire line of equipment for hearing aids, they chose Medicologic as a partner.

Quality management is essential in the medical device industry as the prerequisite for permission to market products as stated for instance in the EU Medical Device Directive (MDD).

With ever-changing standards and regulatory demands from the health authorities, staying updated can be quite a demanding task for a company’s quality management department. Rather than building and maintaining this expertise in-house, you can hire it from a consultant.
