About Virginia Medical Supplies

Virginia Medical Supplies Limited is a company focused on bringing innovative, customer-focused products to the medical and lifestyle products markets in Ireland, the UK and internationally.

The Founder, pharmacist Brian O’Donoghue, is passionate about the health and wellbeing of his patients and recognised a need in the market for two products that would improve their health and wellbeing and make life easier for both patient and pharmacist.

With this in mind, he developed “Nu-life” Monitored Dosage System and sourced Salin Plus© Air Purifier.

Virginia Medical Supplies was short-listed in 2012 in three award categories at the Irish Start-up Awards. The categories in which they were short-listed were; Digital/Online Start-up of the Year, Social Enterprise Start-up of the Year and Export Start-up of the Year. The Awards celebrate the very best Irish start-up businesses and seek to recognise young, exciting, entrepreneurial Irish companies across all sectors of the economy.

Salin Plus® Air Purifier.

In 2011 Brian identified a need amongst his pharmacy customers for a new salt-based respiratory therapy device to aid conventional medical treatments for people with respiratory problems.

He subsequently sourced a unique product, Salin Plus©”, which uses a non-invasive method of delivering tiny salt particles deep into a person’s lungs; in the comfort of their own home while they sleep. The therapy has been shown to have significant health benefits in the treatment of respiratory conditions such as Asthma, Chronic Bronchitis, Bronchial Asthma, Silicosis, Cystic Fibrosis, Tuberculosis, Rhiinitis (Hay Fever), Sinusutis, Laryngitis, Allergies, Respiratory Diseases, Snoring, and Sleep Apnea.

Virginia Medical Supplies have sole distribution rights across Ireland and the UK for this product

Nu-Life Monitored Dosage System (MDS)

Nu-Life MDS saves Pharmacists time and labour costs whilst at the same time improving patient care. Designed by an Irish Pharmacist, Brian O’Donoghue, it is available in 14, 28 and 42 pod sizes. Nu-Life MDS is very practical and sturdy with large transparent compartments that make it fast and simple for the pharmacist to fill, and importantly, the Patient can easily see the medication to be taken at the prescribed times.

Ensures Compliance

The computer application allows the Pharmacist print out a “Medicines Management Page” for each Patient which is attached to the Nu-Life Pack. This page shows: the name of the medication: a colour picture and description of each medication: the time it is to be taken during the day: and medical indications.

As well as being user friendly for the patient when taking the medication, the “Medicines Management Page” also allows the Pharmacist make a comprehensive final Check of the medications against the patient’s prescription when filling the Nu-Life MDS, ensuring compliance.

Easy and Quick to Change Medications Mid-Cycle

Unlike other blister packs if the patient has to change their medication mid-cycle it is made very easy with Nu-Life. The Pharmacist simply pops the seal for the days the medicines have changed, takes out the unwanted medication, puts the new prescribed ones in, puts on a new seal and gives it to the patient.
