The jfish project

p nerve stimulatorThe jfish project seeks to encourage the use and development of free anaesthetic monitoring technologies. Their goal is to produce free and open technology to provide safe and reliable anaesthetic monitoring anywhere in the world the need exists.

Stage 2 of the jfish project is complete, with the research, design and construction of a free hardware/open source peripheral nerve stimulator (PNS). Version 1 of the jfish PNS is a standalone battery-powered device suitable for monitoring neuromuscular blockade in a developing world setting. The open design allows for easy addition of extra functionality and integration with other systems as desired.
