Case Studies

Case study: iVent, GE Healthcare

Client:
GE Healthcare required a user interface for a respiratory ventilation machine, iVent.

The challenge:
The ventilation machine is an embedded device running Linux. The challenge was to create a smartphone level user interface using highly limited computing resources, under strict adherence to the performance of the respirator.

The solution:
The UI was developed the using QT, together with linux kernel tweaks, and modification of memory management internals to adapt to the requirements of the device.

The process:
We developed a highly specialized solution, which required medical knowledge in the field of respiratory support, including familiarity of the underlying physics and airflow dynamics.

Result:
A prime example of Monfort’s capability to develop a unique solution tailored to a unique application.
