Assisting An Aging Population: Designing Medical Devices With Force Sensing Technology

With the geriatric population on the rise, design engineers are challenged with designing responsive, noninvasive, user-friendly medical devices that cater to the needs of an older generation. Patients are looking for cost-effective, easy to use assistive tools that help them regain independence and confidence in their everyday life. Force feedback is a key feature for many of these devices that provide the user and doctor with great insight that ultimately results in better quality of life for the patient. Medical devices with force feedback allow design engineers to create innovative products that differentiate them from the competition.

Selecting Miniature Motors for your Medical Devices

The creation of small, portable infusion pumps opened a new chapter in medical care. A patient can receive carefully metered and timed doses of medicine, without requiring a visit to the medical practitioner, allowing life to be less restrictive. Ambulatory pumps have been developed to deliver insulin, nutritive supplements and anticancer drugs.

Avoiding Common Mistakes in Extractables/Leachables Program Design

Mistakes in program design for extractables/leachables testing can lead to significant delays, rounds of questions, and the need for additional testing. And, in some cases, all of the extractables/leachables testing may need to be repeated. To avoid these costly mistakes, it is important to understand the current standards as well as the current interpretations and opinions from regulators interpreting these standards. In this whitepaper the experts from WuXi AppTec discuss the current standards, interpretations and will provide you with tips to avoid common mistakes when designing your program.

The Benefits of 3D Printing for Medical Implant and Prostheses Development

3D printing is one of the world’s fastest growing technologies, and is already revolutionizing the many areas of medical manufacturing in ways similar to how computers revolutionized communication. Using the right input, medical files such as 2D imaging (MRI or CT scans) can be used to create customized anatomical models, medical devices, and prosthetics. Manufacturing parts in this way reduces time and cost by as much as 80-90%. In this white paper from Stratasys, find out how medical professionals are actively exploring the vast possibilities that 3D printing offers.

Piezo Motors Power MRI Robot

Surgeons treating brain cancer face a conundrum: They can capture ultra-high-resolution images of the tumor using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or they can use ultra-precise surgical tools to remove the tumor, but they can’t do both at the same time. At least they couldn’t prior to the creation of the innovative MRI robot from the Worchester Polytechnic Institute team.
