Sawyer Aviation Patents HaloMed

Sawyer Aviation is saving lives with its patent pending invention named HALO. Company owner and president, Chad J. Verdaglio invented HALO to improve the safety of organ transport and to ensure proper compliance with FAA standards. Currently, 40 percent of the company’s private charter flights are for the transport of life-saving organs and medical transplant teams.

Verdaglio saw the challenges and risks with organ transport in traditional coolers. This inspired the aviation executive and certified pilot to come up with a solution. He knew that if he could develop a device that keeps organ containers secure and stable in-flight, it would provide safer transport from city to city and hospital to hospital. Verdaglio enlisted the help of engineers to bring his vision to reality, filed for a patent in 2021 and began using HALO since that time.

“As a private aviation company, we have been providing medical transplant flights for a number of years. I knew if we could install a device on our planes that allowed us to lock containers in to remain stable throughout the flight we could ensure safer transport of organs,.” explains Verdaglio. “It’s one thing to get the organ there in time, but if it’s damaged, it’s unusable and it was all a waste.”

HALO allows for organ transplant coolers to be safely strapped into the bed of the aircraft to keep the container from moving around in flight. Sawyer Aviation is using HALO for its organ transport flights now and hopes to begin selling its patent pending device to other aviation companies by late 2022.
