UK-based Camcon Medical has sought to transform the way medical oxygen is delivered to patients suffering from respiratory failure through its Binary Actuation Technology (BAT) valve technology.
Claimed by the CAMCON group’s founder, Professor Wladyslaw Wygnanski, to be the first new medicinal gas delivery device for oxygen in 100 years, the technology allows for ‘unprecedented’ oxygen delivery speed, an advantage which could see Camcon Medical’s technology deployed for Covid-19 patients.
The patented BAT valve technology acts as a rapid and precise on/off switching device of liquid or gas, needing a very short electric pulse to switch a valve between ‘open’ and ‘close’.
With BAT technology having been utilised in the oil and gas and automotive industry, Camcon Medical has modified the valve to be used as a medical oxygen delivery device, alleviating oxygen shortage across both acute and chronic respiratory failure.
