Finger-type peristaltic infusion pump (DDS) utilizes flexible infusion for delivering infusion fluid. The incorporation of the tube into the DDS requires the patient or the hospital personnel to apply significant measure of energy and to use two hands, one to mount the tube in the DDS and the other to immobilize the tube to its place. The mounting of the tube requires extensive experience and 3D coordination. Moreover, in most DDSs, users must utilize their two hands to affix the tubing into the pump. A simple to operate OPEN/CLOSE mechanism for DDSs is hence still a long felt need.

The MS is an elongated member characterized by upstream and downstream opposite ends, integrally accommodating a portion of a flexible infusion-tube, the main longitudinal axis of said tube is parallel to the main longitudinal axis of said MS. The MS comprises modules selected from a group consisting inter alia (i) a saddle-like catch (saddle), located at one end of the MS, preferably the downstream end; and (U) a toothed interface located at the opposite end of the MS, preferably the upstream end, the interface is adapted to accommodate at least one catch securely and reversibly fastening said MS in an OPEN configuration.

The inger-type peristaltic infusion pump comprises modules selected inter alia from a group consisting of (i) a barrel-like axle (barrel), located e.g., one potion of the pump, preferably the downstream portion. The barrel is adapted to fit said saddle by means of shape and size such that a two-parts hinge is when said saddle and barrel are integrated; said hinge reversibly facilitates said MS in either OPEN (MS is away from the finger-type peristaltic infusion pump) configuration or CLOSE (MS incorporates with the finger-type peristaltic infusion pump) configuration; and,

(H) (H) at least one spring catch, located at this portion of said pump, preferably upstream portion. The catch is adapted to lock-on said toothed interface and reversibly yet effectively lock the MS at said CLOSE configuration; wherein by stepwise incorporation of said MS with the finger-type peristaltic infusion pump provides an easy and mistake-proof OPEN/CLOSE three steps mechanism: first step comprises incorporating said saddle with said barrel in said OPEN configuration, such that one, i.e., Roll, degree of freedom in said three dimensional mutual orientation is eliminated; second step rotatably closes said MS in a lever-like manner; and the third step comprises incorporation of said spring catch within said toothed interface, so that other five DOFs are eliminated and a secure CLOSE configuration is obtained.

Another object of the present invention to provide OPEN/CLOSE mechanism as defined above, wherein the force required rotating and shutting said MS to its CLOSE configuration is about 1.2 Kg.

Another object of the present invention to provide OPEN/CLOSE mechanism as defined above, wherein the barrel-saddle hinged mechanism provides for a single-handed MS-DDS integration ability

Another object of the present invention to provide OPEN/CLOSE mechanism as defined above, wherein the flexible infusion tube is accommodated within said MS by means of two connectors; the connectors immobilize said tube and stabilizing it towards forces applied in parallel to the tube's main longitudinal axis, i.e., from the patent and/or supply lines.

Another object of the present invention to disclose a method for providing an OPEN/CLOSE mechanism by both an elongated passive mechanical interface (MS) and a finger-type peristaltic infusion pump. The method comprises steps as follows: a. obtaining an OPEN/CLOSE mechanism as defined in any of the above; b. stepwise incorporating the MS with the finger-type peristaltic infusion pump and thus providing an easy and mistake-proof OPEN/CLOSE three steps mechanism. The mechanism comprises steps as follows: i. incorporating said saddle with said barrel in said OPEN configuration, such that one, i.e., Roll, degree of freedom in said three dimensional mutual orientation is eliminated; ii. rotatably closing said MS in a lever-like manner, and the third step comprises incorporation of said spring catch within said toothed interface, such that other five DOFs are eliminated and a secure CLOSE configuration is obtained; and, iii. incorporating said saddle with said barrel in said OPEN configuration, such one, i.e., Roll, degree of freedom (DOF) in said MS-DDS 3D mutual orientation is eliminated.

Still another object of the present invention to provide the method as defined above, the methos comprises step of applying force to rotate said MS to its CLOSE configuration, said force is less than about 1.2 Kg. e.g., is about half the force (about 2.5 Kg) required to close (shut off) a non-hinged MS mechanism against the pumping mechanism.

Various modifications, however, will remain apparent to those skilled in the art, since the generic principles of the present invention have been defined specifically to provide an OPEN/CLOSE mechanism of passive mechanical interface and a finger-type peristaltic infusion pump.

The present invention generally relates to a passive mechanical interface for a finger-type peristaltic infusion pump; the MS integrally accommodates a portion of a flexible infusion- tube. The MS is adapted to be easily and intuitively mounted into the finger-type peristaltic infusion pump by applying minimal measure of energy. The incorporation of MS with the finger-type peristaltic infusion pump is easily provided by a single hand. The MS of the present invention is designed to be incorporated only in a predetermined direction, and it cannot be incorporated in an opposite manner, i.e., wherein infusion fluid flows in an opposite direction.

It is also in the scope of the present invention wherein by affixing the MS to the finger-type peristaltic infusion pump, a simultaneous and secure incorporation of the flexible infusion tube with the pumping mechanism is provided. Hence, the affixed MS ensures that the tube is locate in a predefined location, especially in respect to both (i) the pressing- fingers and (U) pump's various sensors. Moreover, affixed MS ensures the stability of the tube against pulling and pushing forces, i.e., forces along the main longitudinal axis of the tube provided by the patient and supply lines.

The term 'passive mechanical interface' refers to a mechanical interface of the set tubing that has no moving parts such as e.g., pistons, hinges, cams, wheels, sealing membranes, gaskets etc.

The term 'saddle' refers hereinafter to a saddle-like hinge by which the MS is rotatably incorporated with the pump. According to one embodiment of the invention, the saddle is located at the downstream portion of the MS. According to another embodiment of the present invention, the saddle further comprises a plurality of fastening means, such as catches, clips, screws, pins and barrels.
