One of the sectors in which the creation of shared value is clearly visible is the medical world. Thanks to a system of Demcon macawi respiratory systems, patients with respiratory problems can be treated better. We meet this need thanks to a system that can be used to ventilate any patient, from preterm to adult, by only changing hoses. Both the company and the customer and society benefit from better treatment of the patient.
In the medical world, there was a demand for an innovation for the respiratory systems. Demcon macawi respiratory systems developed it, with the support of various expertise within the Demcon group, in the form of a highly dynamic centrifugal blower, which is then supplied as OEM technology to manufacturers of complete artificial respiration systems. In addition, they make customer-specific artificial respiration modules.
The heart of the centrifugal blower is a motor that, thanks to its smart construction and material choices, can reach no less than 90,000 rpm. Demcon macawi respiratory systems developed a high-dynamic control system for this. This ensures that the artificial respiration can react to the patient immediately (at up to 200 breaths per minute), so that the highest level of breathing comfort is attained. With its sophisticated control unit, the motor runs with low energy consumption and produces minimal heat and noise. This, added to the robust construction (also suitable for transport ventilator equipment in an ambulance or emergency helicopter), ensures a long service life. The design assumes 40,000 operating hours, or at least five years (in continuous service). Demcon took care of getting the module production-ready, organized the supply chain, and set up an efficient assembly and test line in house.
In addition to the complete, advanced functionality and the long service life, the concept distinguishes itself by the simple integration into a client’s artificial respiration system. Ultimately, this offers the end user low cost of ownership. Moreover, the concept is suitable for use in both hospital and mobile artificial respiration systems.
Demcon is the ideal partner for medical technology start-ups wanting to introduce an innovative product to the market. In the case of the artificial respiration systems of Demcon macawi respiratory systems, the match was so close that the company is now part of the Demcon group. Demcon macawi respiratory systems has unique expertise in artificial respiration and medical equipment and specialized knowledge of artificial respiration and analysis algorithms. The contribution of Demcon consists of broad mechatronic expertise, knowledge of medical devices (including certification) and flexible production capacity. This collaboration completes the project.
