Respiratory and Ventilation Motors

Challenge

With the increasing need for patients to be mobile, both in the hospital and in a home setting, the need for highly capable, efficient and portable ventilators has increased.

Portescap’s highly efficient slotless brushless DC ventilation motors have helped reduce the size of motor-blower assemblies while providing higher pressure and flow. Portescap's low inertia brushless design achieves rapid step response to maximize patient acceptance in bi-level and volume-controlled operating modes. Quiet, reliable and efficient, Portescap medical motors can effectively power ventilator blowers on battery at night, during inter-hospital transport, in emergency vehicles or comfortably in a stationary home or hospital setting.
