A self-stirring syringe pump was created in order to fill a void in the market for a medical device that could perform a lengthy drug infusion. This was accomplished by using a magnetic field mechanism that enclosed the body of a syringe. A stator was created in order to facilitate the induction of magnetic fields around the syringe body. A flexible magnetic stir bar was created to rotate within the syringe body while also being able to conform to the syringe plunder as an infusion occurred. In order for the stator with the syringe to fit onto a conventional syringe pump, a mount had to be made. This mount was removable to ensure easy access to the syringe once an infusion had occurred. A study was performed to determine whether or not the self-stirring syringe pump could keep a suspension homogenous over a lengthy infusion. It was found that the self-stirring syringe pump was able to accomplish this task.
