Business Overview

Home rental business

Based upon reliable technology, MEK-ICS Co., Ltd. has offered a home rental service for artificial respirators for family use since 2016. Regarding the rental cost, health insurance has been applied for patients with a relevant disease since January 1, 2016. It means that the National Health Insurance Service supports the patients to decrease their economic burden.

Home rental service is also called "artificial respirator treatment service". The "service provider of artificial respirator treatment" registered with the National Health Insurance Service leases the artificial respirator to the patient registered with the National Health Insurance Service, as prescribed by a doctor. The patient receives a visit every month to supply and replace the consumables. The representative will check, record and manage the condition of the instrument and patient so that proper ventilation can be maintained.

We are a "service provider of artificial respirator treatment", registered with the National Health Insurance Service. Holding the only manufacturing technology for artificial respirators in Korea and with home care experts who have extensive clinical knowledge, we can offer the best service for clients.
