Safe embedded software
We also worked on a cardiac prosthesis that replaces the ventricles of the patient's heart. This artificial heart autonomously controls the blood flow of two ventricles so as to maintain a stable heart rhythm, adapted to the morphology and activity of the patient. If the prosthesis fails, it is necessary to continue to control the blood flow in degraded mode. Médiane Système realized on this project:
- The implementation of a quality standard according to EN ISO 13485/62304/62366/14971,
- The design and development of prosthesis management software in degraded mode,
- The design of the software responsible for feeding the prosthesis and monitoring alarms.
