The Puddle


Accelerate alumni



The Puddle device will enable any doctor to detect and drain pleural effusion, fluids around the lungs, or abdominal ascites, fluids in the abdomen, without the need to wait for hours or sometimes days for a radiologist to preform the procedure under ultrasound guidance. The device will do that by calculating the distance between the skin surface and viable organs and will also calculate the amount of fluids and present this information in simple numbers on its screen. The use of this device can be also for monitoring the amount of fluids by healthcare staff at hospitals or hospices and by the patients if they are at home, helping to know when is the best time to go to the hospital and drain the fluids.
