Wolfgang Rencken, Sphere Medical’s chief executive, said: "We are very pleased with the market reaction to Proxima 4 and encouraged by the early response from customers. We look forward to building on this through 2017."

Unlike previous models, the upgraded product can be used with children and the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital is one of those that has placed an order, the first paediatric unit to purchase a Proxima product. 

Sphere added that a distributor has been appointed in Austria, while training, marketing and monitoring of patients in hospitals is now underway in Italy and is on track to commence in Spain imminently. 

Production processes have now been fully switched to Proxima 4 from Proxima 3, and the establishment of Sphere's manufacturing facility in Wales has continued to progress according to plan.
