Bloop / Products and Application

Bloop
Bloop

Blood reserves are rarely available in emerging economies. In 2015, 1.2 Million people died of major bleeding during surgery complications.
Bloop is a reusable, affordable ($10) medical device making it possible to instantly and safely ‘re-use’ a patient’s own leaking blood. It works by a simple siphon principle allowing a patient’s blood to flow uphill without pumps. As soon as the blood bag is filled, it will be replaced with an empty one and the first unit of collected – and filtered – blood can now be given back to the patient.
Depending on the infrastructural development of medical facilities, Bloop can be extended to a high-end version.
