Orthopedic implants keep getting smarter. For the first time, a patient has received an investigational, full artificial knee replacement that can wirelessly report digital, 3D torque and force data back to computers.
Quest Product Development, with partner University of Colorado, has completed Phase I research
Two series of ultra-miniature, open-frame modular switching power supplies are available. In a small mechanical footprint measuring only 2 in. W x 4 in. L x 1.2 in. H, both the ASM40 and ASM60 series provide power densities >6 W/in 3 .
Known for tubing and fitting capabilities, the company also customizes tubing assemblies for specific OEM instruments and applications. It offers a comprehensive selection of tubing in capillary through large-bore sizes, with ODs from less than 0.0145 to 5/16 in.
Extem thermoplastic polyimide (TPI) resins are a family of amorphous polymers that provide exceptional performance while eliminating the drawbacks of semi-crystalline materials.
The 199XRAY Medical ScopeMeter and 35080M Non-Invasive kVp Divider kit combination significantly streamlines x-ray system calibration, QA, or corrective maintenance procedure setup and analysis.
The NAM series is a diversified line of noise filters. With 6 current options (4, 6, 10, 16, 20,
The reduced footprint 713 series M12 male sockets allows fastening from the back side of a panel and reduces the required surface area for mounting. The design features an M12 rear thread allowing the connector to be mounted to a panel having a thickness of up to 3.0 mm.
There are a number of factors medical device manufacturers need to consider when using injection molded parts in their device. If they don’t, they may be caught by surprise when they think they are ready to move into full production on a part.
