Koma / medical equipment

Koma
Koma

Koma is a pegtop-shaped medical device with an automatic alarm system. A liquid sensor in Koma will detect how much quantity of liquid medicine is still in the bottle—as the water level goes down, the floating metal ball which is inside the sensor will go down too. When there is nearly out of liquid medicine, the ball will hit the bottom of the sensor and then the alarm circuit runs. Then Koma will launch a wireless wave signal which can be received in the nurses' workroom so that the patient will get help immediately.
With Koma, the patient can do many other things during the boring intravenous drip time.
