BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Design Medical, Inc. is an early stage medical device company that is developing a revolutionary heart pump that reduces complications following heart surgery. Current pumping technologies are a frequent cause of renal and neurological complications due to a failure to push blood through up to 40% of the capillaries. The Design Medical pump achieves superior flow and pressure performance, mimicking the physiological performance of the human heart - something no other pump does - in a unique, compact, economical, quiet, and robust package. Presently, pumps used in CPB are continuous flow and are incapable of delivering the gentle energy required to supply blood flow to critical organs. Our pumping system comprises a reusable driver and a high margin, single use disposable. The result is better patient care, with improved perfusion throughout all organs, thus reducing the negative complications of heart surgery, while passing on substantial savings to the hospital.
