Trig collaborated with 410 Medical of Durham. 410 Medical, founded by Triangle physician Mark Piehl MD, is the maker of the LifeFlow rapid infuser, a device to be used by hospitals and emergency responders to administer fluids to critically ill patients. The LifeFlow Rapid Infusion System is currently undergoing 510(k) premarket review by FDA and is not available for sale in the United States. With the LifeFlow’s revolutionary hand-held design, hospital and EMS based clinicians, may more effectively perform rapid fluid resuscitation required for patients in shock. The design simplifies a three-handed fluid administration procedure, typically executed by two people, to a single-handed exercise to be performed by a single health care professional.
For its engagement with Dr. Piehl and the team at 410 Medical, Trig effectively filled gaps needed to further develop and launch the product, including mechanical concept brainstorming, 3D CAD visualization, rapid prototyping, industrial design, and animated videos.
