Donate & aid
As a medical device company that develops skin and wound healing solutions it is natural that we try to make our products available where needed and where possible. We expressed our solidarity with the people of Lebanon by donating over 15,000 Flaminal® Hydro and Flaminal® Forte tubes to help thousands of injured patients after two explosions hit the city of Beirut on August 4th, 2020.
In summer 2021, when major floods hit parts of Germany and Belgium, we supported the initiative Initiative Chronische Wunden e.V. as well as Rotary with hundreds of Flamigel® and Flaminal® Hydro tubes to treat the acute and painful wounds of volunteers.Learn more
Furthermore, we donated Flamigel® tubes in the value of more than € 300,000 to healthcare professionals working in Belgian and Luxembourgish hospitals, to heal their wounded and irritated hands due to frequent hand washing and disinfecting in the fight against COVID-19.Learn more
Supporting non-profit organisations in the fight against diseases is very important to us. One example is our participation in ELA – Wear your trainers and beat disease. We take these occasions not only as an opportunity to support the ones that are fighting a disease but also to cherish health and to learn more about staying fit.
We work hand in hand with healthcare professionals and patients, who use our product portfolio and to whom we acknowledge their vital input in creating innovative skin and wound healing solutions. We are proud to be sponsor and / or participate in multiple healthcare organisation’s events.Learn more
<p>The most common everyday injuries are <a href="t3://page?uid=39" target="_blank">minor wounds</a>. Therefore, Flen Health regularly gives thousands of plasters to young scouts and athletes in sport camps. Additionally, scouts can win first-aid courses, performed by the red cross to be prepared for the event of small injuries. Also, schools and individuals are equipped with hundreds of first-aid backpacks to cover small household accidents, like burns or cuts. </p>
Protect the environment
Our operations are to be conducted with the least possible environmental impact considering the company’s financial and technical resources. We must comply with laws and other relevant requirements in the environmental area that affect our operations. Within the framework of our management system, we will establish and follow up on tangible environmental objectives for the operations. The company’s environmental work should be conducted with the aim of achieving continuous improvements and preventing pollution of the environment.
We have active advisory roles in research projects like the PROBIO project, PROspection for BIOactive compounds in the North Sea. This project performs innovative, high risk research, with a prospect of economic and societal applications. All findings will contribute to the developments in “sustainable seafood and marine biotechnology” of the Blue Economy.
The intercluster project Enzymares, will develop an enzyme prediction toolbox to speed up enzyme discovery & reduce the time-to-market for new enzymes. Not only Flen Health uses enzymes in its wound healing solutions but also pharmaceuticals, food, textiles, cosmetics, and many more industrial applications consist of enzymes. As they are non-toxic and biodegradable, enzymes are an attractive alternative to chemical additives or catalysts.
Kris Ceurvels and Zjan Van Miert, two artists from Belgium found not only a creative but also meaningful solution of recycling our old product tubes: They created three interlinked frames covered with 6364 empty Flamigel tubes. “We got inspired by an old telephone exchange”, the two women say. The artists cut the tubes in different lengths which creates a very colourful geographic relief. To process and visualise their art project with old Flamigel tubes is resourceful and innovative. Today, the art piece decorates the entrance hall in our Belgian affiliate and reminds us of the importance of staying connected with the people in our lives, the environment and society.
