GE Healthcare required a user interface for a respiratory ventilation machine, iVent.
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 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.
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.
A prime example of Monfort’s capability to develop a unique solution tailored to a unique application.
