Sequana Medical is a Swiss medical device company dedicated to improving patient lives through innovative technologies to manage fluid within the body.
Sequana’s first therapeutic product, the ALFApump® System, is a new solution to manage ascites which can occur as a symptom of advanced liver disease, certain cancers or congestive heart failure. Other applications of this core pump technology are in development
We created an animation sequence showing how the ALFApump® System: a fully implantable, battery powered pump that can be charged through the skin operates. We wanted to show how this specifically engineered product provides robust, dependable and safe fluid transport in a fully implanted setting. Our aim was to show how the unique combination of pump systems, pressure sensing capabilities, wireless charging, communications solutions and software design have all contributed to creating a world class therapeutic product.
