DMC featured in ISA InTech Magazine
The International Society of Automation (ISA) featured DMC’s pediatric thermoregulatory test chamber project in InTech Magazine. The article, entitled “Pediatric Hospital Works with CSIA Member to Develop Unique Test Chamber,” highlights Lurie Children’s Hospital’s collaboration with CSIA-certified DMC for this one-of-a-kind solution.
The piece details the design and implementation of a thermoregulatory chamber that DMC engineers collaborated with Lurie Children’s Hospital staff to develop. Used to diagnose sweat abnormalities in children with rare diseases, development of the chamber required not only the effort of DMC as a system integrator (SI), but the partnership of the hospital clinicians, researchers, architects, construction crews and patients as well.
Performance, safety, tolerance and accuracy were of the highest priority in terms of development and functionality, which led our engineers to choose the National Instruments compactRIO to operate the system. Data collection was another key feature for which unique and specialized requirements were made.
Most importantly, the chamber was designed with children’s comfort in mind, and “the team looked for solutions that would be as noninvasive as possible.”
Since implementation of the system, the hospital has made numerous diagnoses that have better aided in patient treatment. DMC is proud to be a part of an initiative aimed at improving the quality of life for children nationwide.
