Lungpacer Medical Inc. is a medical device company founded in May 2009 and headquartered at the Simon Fraser University (SFU) Campus in Burnaby, British Columbia. Lungpacer’s mission is to develop and commercialize a novel therapeutic system that addresses key health issues associated with mechanical ventilation of critically ill ICU patients.
Intravenously inserted Lungpacerâ„¢ electrodes rhythmically activate the diaphragm. In critically ill patients who may become ventilator-dependent, Lungpacer’s diaphragm pacing system is expected to maintain diaphragm strength and function, resulting in faster patient recovery, a shorter stay in intensive care, improved health outcomes and lower hospitalization costs.
