Medad Technology, a Dubai-based privately owned and funded multi-disciplinary company, has planned to invest more than $150 million in the research and development (R&D) of new technologies for radical advances in healthcare, biotech, fintech and even sustainable mobility.

Mr. Mohammed Alshaiba Almazrouei, Chief Executive Officer of Medad Technology, stated that the company has already patented several innovations in ultrasound technology, with potentially groundbreaking applications in smoking cessation, medicine delivery and diagnostics.

Over the last four years, the company has invested $50 million in developing, manufacturing, and testing its ultrasound technology in order to acquire regulatory approval in the UAE and other global markets.

Medad Technology is now introducing its patented ultrasound nicotine delivery system (UNDS) to the UAE and will invest a further $100 million over the next three years in clinical trials, smoking cessation research and product development across sectors.
