Started: 2010

Based: London

KwickScreens can be used as a direct replacement for dusty curtains or expensive building projects and the easy to clean design means they can help prevent hospital acquired infections such as MRSA.

Invented by Michael Konn, the British-made product was launched in 2010 and is already used in over 30 NHS trusts as well as in Europe, North America and the Middle East. The unique design allows for colour as well as important messages to be printed on the screen.

After success in a variety of hospitals Michael and his team are working on expanding the market to dentists, GPs, Care Homes and then schools, open plan offices and exhibitions.
