BOTHELL, Wash. – VOCSN, a portable life support device for patients with neuromuscular disease, impaired lung function, spinal cord injury and pediatric development complications, has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “Our team didn’t want to create just another ventilator—we spent the past five years focused on building a truly integrated solution,” said Doug DeVries, founder and CEO of Ventec, the maker of VOCSN. The device works across the continuum of care, from hospital to home, and combines ventilation, oxygen, cough, suction and nebulization. It is 70% lighter and smaller than existing machines, features a nine-hour on-board battery and is controlled through an intuitive touchscreen interface. Caregivers can seamlessly switch between therapies by touching a button.
