This project involved the development of a complex system to enable blood to be treated in a similar process to that used in dialysis machines, but with all phases of the process clearly visible to ensure safety. Each stage of the procedure involves different pumps and filters and a disposable tube set for each patient. System safety was the primary requirement of the entire project.
The system was developed for the medical division of a major international engineering company based in the USA. The housing was designed to be produced from several PU mouldings to enable low volume manufacture and rapid design change. Prototypes are still under development and the final product is being readied for manufacture.
