The heart support system EXCORs:

Driving unit as small as a hand luggage, only 15 kg including batteries

Battery runtime of at least 5 hours even in BVAD mode

Panel PC with user-friendly touch screen

Different mobilization options for different ages

Integrated innovative SONOTEC

In the course of the overall development of the mobile driving unit EXCOR

Apart from usual parameters such as high accuracy and an excellent measuring performance, the sensors were to meet a number of additional requirements such as a compact and low weight product design. Furthermore, the sensors needed to be equipped with a childproof closing mechanism and to be safe in case of the use of defibrillators. Various sensor architectures ensure them to be easily applied to all EXCOR

The flow sensor is a crucial part of the mobile extracorporeal blood pump EXCOR

"This project took advantage of SONOTEC?s unique miniaturization, integration, low current draw as required by many new portable medical projects," emphasizes Daniel Thieme, Marketing Manager Non-Invasive Fluid Monitoring at SONOTECof dialysis and transfusion devices, heart-lung machines, blood separators, medical pumps and diagnostic systems. The intensive guidance from a very early stage in the product development process, support during verification, prototyping and its expertise in certification processes gives SONOTEC a lasting competitive edge.
