After the CE marking in November, our new mobile driving unit EXCOR Active now supports patients for the first time in Germany. “The new EXCOR Active gives us a whole new level of flexibility and mobility when caring for our patients,” says Prof. Berger, Director of the Department of Congenital Heart Diseases and Pediatric Cardiology at the DHZB (German Heart Center, Berlin), who is one of the first cardiologists to begin using the new driving unit, which is the size of hand luggage and with a battery life of 7 hours. “The old stationary driving unit often required a lot of logistical organization and inventive ideas. The various mobilization options and the extended battery operation time that the new driving unit offers, give young patients and their parents much more freedom,” reports Dr. Eugen Sandica, Director of the Clinic for Pediatric Cardiosurgery and Congenital Heart Defects at the Heart and Diabetes Center North Rhine-Westphalia, Bad Oeynhausen.
EXCOR Active is not FDA approved.
