The Project: An enclosure was needed for a power source that aided surgeons with a very delicate procedure.
The drive towards mobility and miniaturization of medical electronics is a goal of many of today's device manufacturers. However, each of them is attempting to miniaturize at different levels.
Many medical devices require some amount of motion to function appropriately. Miniature brushless motors offer an excellent solution to this need. Further, being offered as autoclavable components makes them even more attractive to device designers.
In an effort to enable life saving diagnostic imaging equipment to be taken anywhere it could be necessary, device manufacturers are seeking technologies to help them design devices that will facilitate fully functional, smaller, portable devices.
Medical imaging holds the potential to significantly increase the quality of care able to be provided to injured or ill patients. It is now proving to be a valuable tool in the fight against cancer as well.
As hospital rooms become more high tech, an important concern for today's medical device designer is electromagnetic interference (EMI). Much attention has already been given to the infamous cell phone case which highlights interference from radio frequency signals.

The Project: Eliminate the issues that exist with the uncoated acrylic over the LCD flat-panel display on a cosmetic system. The Solution: Use an abrasion-resistant optical-grade acrylic sheet that functions like glass, but is significantly lighter and more durable.
The Project: Gain a better understanding of how the RF transceiver interacts with the nuclei in MRI systems in order to be able to design the next generation. The Solution: Use electromagnetic simulation software to demonstrate how these interactions occur. By Dr. Christopher M.
China has been the subject of much debate throughout the manufacturing industry as more companies have considered it an option for reducing costs. However, quality concerns and increasing economic factors have caused some to rethink this outsourcing strategy.
Outsourcing using concurrent engineering practices provides the hands-on approach for a company that enables it to gain the most in efficiencies from manufacturing. It can be used by virtually any company of any size and applied to any medical device, product, or component.
The latest signal chain components available for medical imaging systems enable designers to improve signal chain density and power consumption without compromising dynamic performance. Additionally, these technologies allow systems to improve their image quality, power consumption, and size.
Some might point to FDA as an obstacle to achieving true device innovation to provide enhanced healthcare. Others view the agency as a necessary element to help ensure patient safety and provide regulated oversight.
Rigorous human factors testing and iterative product design are critical in the development of medication infusion devices, particularly with the current emphasis on preventing medication errors in the hospital setting.
Electronic components used in medical devices can often experience much shorter lifecycles than the products in which they are used. With the additional challenges that come from replacing a part in a finished device, it is best to be as prepared for this inevitable process as possible.
Safety labels seem like a basic enough component of a product to not warrant serious consideration, but for medical device manufacturers, that type of thinking could lead to serious consequences.
Worldwide demand for quality medical equipment ensures that many device manufacturers will have to engage in a reverse logistics scenario in order to extract the greatest potential from their products.
A breakthrough technology uses CAD functionality to convert CT and MRI scans into individualized, minimally invasive articular replacement systems. The end result, customizable orthopedic implants, could become much more commonplace for patients who require this type of treatment.
