Problem: The subclavian vein is accessed in about 2 million central venous access procedures performed annually in the US. This could be for hemodynamic monitoring in critically ill patients, delivering chemotherapy, parenteral nutrition, and pacemaker lead placement. Unfortunately,
A ventilator made from off the shelf industrial automation parts, recreating simple all-pneumatic (no electric power required) ventilators that have been in service continuously since the late 70's. This ventilator can be built from a kit with no special tools, and is easy to assemble.
Problem: Chaotic electrical activity of the heart (arrhythmia) has a tremendous impact on society’s well-being: Not only is it the number one cause of both sudden death and stroke, but it is also a leading contributor to congestive heart failure (CHF).
Medical facilities are becoming a source of potential infection during the epidemy, as, for example, in the case of COVID-19. It is unlikely that the epidemiological situation with COVID-19 will be changed essentially in the world in the nearest years. Consequently,
Currently, physicians cannot assess respiratory function in COVID-19 patients remotely. COVID-19 infection deteriorates patients’ ability to breathe due to discomfort, fluid accumulation, and exhaustion. While most patients can safely recover at home,
We are Maven Therapy and we have developed the Maven 1 Physical Therapy Device. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are traditionally prescribed for patients who have been involved in accidents or have suffered strokes. The initial period is usually conducted in a clinical facility, and when the patient goes home,
MRIs are a necessary but often anxiety provoking medical procedure. Particularly with pediatric patients, fear is often a barrier to collecting quality MRI data. 49% of pediatric MRIs require sedation and up to 30% of imaging data sets are deemed unusable due to head movement (Power. et al., 2014).
