Michigan Instruments Donates Two Respiratory Simulation Training and Test Lung (TTL) Devices to Grand Valley State University
Date:11/22/2014

Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) November 22, 2014

Respiratory therapy students will soon have the opportunity to simulate the proper management of life-like respiratory ailments using the latest in training and test lung devices. Grand Rapids-based, Michigan Instruments Inc. developers of the world-renowned “Michigan Lung” plans to donate two of the respiratory simulation units to the pro-gram, which cost approximately $12,000 to $15,000 each. Grand Valley and Muskegon Community College are collaborating to offer Muskegon’s Respiratory Therapy education for GVSU students. Nursing and Physician Assistant students at GVSU will also benefit from the simulation units.

These sophisticated devices provide students with real-time data, measurements and response that simulate those of a real respiratory patient. With this information, students learn how to properly ventilate and manage a variety of respiratory conditions.

“It is our privilege to provide the latest advancements in training and test lung products to a local program like Grand Valley State University’s,” stated Joe Baldwin, President of Michigan Instruments, Inc. “Our ‘Michigan Lung’ is known and recognized world-wide and we are fortunate to work with a program like GVSU’s to ensure students in our community are able to receive the absolute best training possible right here in West Michigan.”

Michigan Instruments Inc, partnered with local software design and development firm, Atomic Object, to architect and develop cutting edge software called “PneuView 3” — their latest train-ing and test lung software application which calculates and displays, in real time, numerous respiratory parameters and waveforms. Software improvements combined with intricate design modifications to the Michigan Lung, provide users with even greater simulation capabilities. Atomic Object co-founder Carl Erickson left an academic career at GVSU to start Atomic Object. Many of Atomic’s Grand Rapids staff have Grand Valley degrees.

“Our passion is to build great software and find better ways of doing it,” said Carl Erickson, PhD and CEO of Atomic Object. “We were thrilled to work with Michigan Instruments to create innovative, beautiful software, drastically improving measurement capabilities and user experience. The fact that this upgraded software will now be used to help train respiratory students at Grand Valley State University makes us all quite happy.” Shawn Anderson, project lead for PneuView noted that “Working with Michigan Instruments exemplified the great results we get by creating a team with our clients. Plus, it was a really fun project to work on.”

The Michigan Lung is regarded as the most versatile, reliable training and test lungs on the market, and its latest multifaceted, fully to-scale mechanical design and software upgrades al-low for simulation of hundreds of patient scenarios.
