ESSEBI MEDICAL was established in 2016 following an idea by Pietro Sordina about the necessity to immobilize and position the patient during medical treatment. TOTIM® by ESSEBI MEDICAL Srl is an internationally registered trademark which arose from the long-standing experience of its founder, whose family has successfully produced medical devices for four generations. In 1880 Giuseppe Sordina established Officine Giuseppe Sordina spa in Padua (Italy), first producer of medical sterilizers and autoclave in the world. In 1961 the third generation, with ing Giuseppe Sordina, founded OMS Spa, a manufacturing company of dental units and chairs. Pietro Sordina, ing Sordina’s son, is following his family’s tradition.
Thanks to the team know-how, the company was soon able to realise its potential by giving the radiotherapy national and international market a medical device for patient immobilization. ESSEBI MEDICAL produces fully sealed in microfiber polyester cushions with polyurethane foam inside. The innovative idea of TOTIM® device is that of isolating self-expanding material inside a sealed cushion, available in various sizes. Such material solidifies and adapts like a mould to the patient’s body (or part of it), thus ensuring the patient’s immobilization, his/her comfort and easy use by the medical team.
In 2018 Essebi Medical signed an important international partnership agreement with a company that is world leader in production and commercialization of medical devices for radiotherapy. The agreement was terminated mid-2019 because of the need to increase the expansion in and have direct control on the market.
Since 2016, all TOTIM® products are CE-Marked as Medical Device Classe I unsterile/disposable. In April 2019 the company has obtained FDA certification as 510 (k) Medical Device Class II Product Code IYE Regulation Number 892.5050 (Accelerator, Linear, Medical).
