Designing Lifesaving Technology for EKOS®June 26, 2017
Designing medical products isn’t just an expertise at Tactile, it’s a specialty—we love being a part of making an impact on lifesaving tools. Our partners at EKOS® received US FDA approval in February 2017 for one of their newest products, the EKOS Control Unit 4.0. The EKOS Control Unit 4.0 provides the power to the EKOS System’s ultrasonic core device that uses acoustic pulses to efficiently and safely dissolve blood clots and restore blood flow in patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). Looking to refresh their PE treatment device, EKOS enlisted Tactile to redesign EKOS Control Unit 4.0, the user interface, and the system’s packaging. Learn more about the project here.
