Infusions pumps are widely used in hospitals

Up to 90% of hospital patients receive infusion therapy (1), accordingly infusion pumps are used on a daily basis in hospitals all around the world. An infusion pump is a medical device that delivers fluids into a patient’s body in controlled amounts (2). These devices are of great help to both patients and hospital staff.

The problem

Frequent failures such as occlusions, kinked tubings, a detachment from the needle, cross flows from multiple infusions or others go undetected or are only detected very slowly. The ECRI Institute has ranked infusion pumps as #1 healthcare technology hazard (3). Every 37min an infusion pump incident has been reported to the FDA on average over five consecutive years (4). 34% of the reported incidents were serious injuries (4). 307 devices types have been recalled by the FDA from 2010 – 2018 (5).

The solution

We develop a new generation of safety infusion pumps based on a proprietary sensor technology (direct flow sensing).

By measuring the fluid flow directly, we aim to provide

  • Higher patient safety
  • Accurate, constant fluid delivery
  • Reliable alarms
  • Smaller, less complex devices
  • Devices which are easy to use

Our ambition

We will solve today’s problems in Infusion Technology and develop the new standard.
