QUEBEC CITY, Canada, April 10th, 2019 — Technimount System has collaborated with the Quebec Heart and Lung Institute to develop the Xtension Pro – ECMOTM: the first North American support system adapted to the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation device (ECMO) when transporting patients on a stretcher.

The first transport in North America with the support system was a young pregnant woman whose life was saved thanks to the ECMO device and the Xtension Pro – ECMOTM. Clinicians agree that the Xtension Pro - ECMOTM will allow a safer and more comfortable transportation for both patient and medical staff while protecting the device from potential damage due to transport.

Technimount System’s President, Carl Bouchard says: “Collaborating with the Institute has been a fantastic experience. We feel lucky to have had the opportunity to develop a product that answers to clinicians’ specific needs. This product helps EMTs and clinicians to fully focus on the patient instead of the medical device and its safety."

Designed, tested and manufactured in Canada, the Xtension Pro - ECMOTM is the result of six months of research and development efforts to engineer a product adapted to North American patient transport.

Technimount System wants to thank the Quebec Heart and Lung Institute, the Institute’s Foundation and Mario Guérin who has offered financial support to make this innovation possible.
