Cool Spine – spinal temperature control device

High risk heart surgeries risk spinal cord damage due to decreased blood flow during the procedure. Our client developed a Catheter for cooling liquids which cools and preserves the spinal cord during these complex surgeries. Kickr design collaborated with the client to develop a fluid and cooling control system that could maintain extraordinarily accurate liquid temperatures along the entirety of the catheter for their continued R&D development. With hundreds of measurements points throughout the catheter and very precise temperature control of the fluid, we were able to provide the client with a system that could allow them to continue their development and move the product toward FDA certification.

Our software and system was able to record and track the variations of temperature along the catheter and control input liquid temperatures in real-time, enabling our customer to make even slight modifications to the design of the catheter and see the results!
