To assist patients in emergency response or home care settings, DeVilbiss required a portable fluid suction device capable of removing fluids from the airway or respiratory support system, as well as removing infectious materials from wounds.


By performing extensive user research and foam-core prototyping, Bally Design created a device that creates a vacuum that draws fluids through disposable tubing into a sealed, one-time use collection cansiter for the Laerdal Emergency Medical Services (EMS) version and a dishwasher-safe reusable canister for the DeVilbiss home care version.
