CT compatible needle positioning system

The usual therapy for combatting liver cancer is to remove the liver tumour surgically. Inevitably this intervention also removes a lot of healthy liver tissue because of the complexity of the procedure. An alternative method is to ablate (or burn away) the tumour with radio frequency or microwave radiation. In this local therapy, the surgeon inserts a needle through the skin and into the tumour manually, using the images in a CT scanner. The advantages of this procedure are that a major operation is unnecessary, and very little healthy liver tissue is damaged. A disadvantage is that it is difficult for the surgeon to position the needle correctly in the tumour in one attempt. It generally needs several repetitions: insert the needle, produce a CT scan, reorientate and reintroduce the needle etc., until the right position has been achieved. This makes the procedure time-consuming and onerous for the patient.

Finapres NOVA

The requirements for a medical apparatus regarding its functionality, reliability and user-friendliness are ever-increasing. Accordingly, the development of a new blood pressure measurement system is a complex and multi-facetted task. This is why Finapres Medical System contracted DEMCON for the development of a new blood pressure measurement device. DEMCON has broad experience with the development of medical systems. DEMCON combines all technical disciplines under one roof, including system engineering, mechanical and electronic engineering, software development and industrial design. In addition, DEMCON has the required know-how regarding the international medical instrumentation guide lines and is experienced in the product certification process.

HandScan

Development and clinical testing of a concept for a medical device is a good start. DEMCON is also deployed for the other half of the work – realising a product that is ready for the market and organising serial production. Hemics in Eindhoven did this for a non-invasive imaging system that can visualise inflammation activity in rheumatoid arthritis. The use of the system can help to improve quality of life for patients and to reduce treatment costs. Hemics approached DEMCON for the step to practical application.

Needle positioning system – MIRIAM

When prostate cancer is suspected, biopsies of the questionable tissue are taken. This has to be done using MRI imaging, in the limited area available between the patient’s legs. In the current, manual procedure, the doctor inserts the biopsy needle rectally; the patient is given preventive antibiotics because of the risk of infection. On average some four attempts are needed before the needle reaches exactly the right position. The alternative is a robot which can introduce the needle through the external skin. This makes the procedure faster, more accurate, more sterile and more patient-friendly.

Eye surgery system EVA

Design and produce an intelligent pump for procedures on the extremely vulnerable eye: that was the assignment that DEMCON received from D.O.R.C., an international supplier of eye surgery appliances and instruments. This assignment was part of the development of a new operating system known as EVA. A good solution for pumping sterile rinsing fluid through the eye was crucial to the success of the project. Through their operating principle, conventional pumps such as venturi or hose pumps create a pulsing fluid flow which can cause complications in the eye.
