Timpel Enlight 1800

Timpel Enlight 1800 is a novel, non invasive and radiation-free equipment for bedside monitoring of the lung in intensive care units, operating rooms, or pulmonary labs. Providing real-time and intuitive images of ventilation distribution within the lung, it allows prompt diagnosis of harmful lung heterogeneities, like lung collapse, lung overdistension, or asynchronous lung filling. A careful assessment of the potential to reverse lung collapse can be easily obtained. It also allows the quick diagnosis of a life-threatening pneumothorax, a selective intubation, or an excessive tidal volume.

Timpel Enlight 1800 is based on Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) technology, in which cross sectional images of the thoracic/lung resistivity are inferred from electrical measurements performed on the thoracic skin, at high sampling rates.

Timpel Enlight 1800 combines an ergonomic electrode belt with a disposable patient interface, a high-end electronic system for image generation, and sophisticated algorithms for physiological interpretation and diagnosis. This technology can be embodied in standalone devices or embedded as a module into other medical devices, such as patient monitors or ventilators.

Timpel Enlight 1800 is an operator-independent technology, which enhances the diagnostic capabilities of intensivists at the bedside, helping them to:

  • individualize patient care,
  • protect the lung, and
  • prevent complications during mechanical ventilation.

About us

Company details

Timpel develops software and hardware for cardiopulmonary monitoring, clinical decisions support tools and bedside diagnosis. The company was founded in São Paulo (Brazil) and is one of the first companies to develop an Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) device. Our main goal is the development of clinical/diagnostic tools to help physicians to take smart decisions at bedside.Since the foundation, Timpel partnered with Faculdade de Medicina and Escola Politécnica of Universidade de São Paulo in projects that resulted in more than fifty international scientific publications in medical and engineering fields. Timpel is also present in many research facilities around the world with prototypes designed for academic research.

The privileged position of the company is indisputable when considering its patent portfolio in cardiopulmonary application of EIT.
