Telemedicine Robots Bring Expertise to Remote Areas

There was a time telemedicine meant holding a heartrate monitor up to the phone receiver to play an audible signal. Modern telepresence robots like the RPVita from InTouch Health do more than put a patient’s diagnostic information in the hands of an offsite doctor, they create a virtual presence that allows physician and patient alike to have an experience startlingly close to the real thing (see figure 1). With sophisticated controls, advanced imaging, and small, quiet FAULHABER DC motors from MICROMO, InTouch brings top-flight medical care to the farthest reaches of the globe.

100% Non-Cytotoxic Rechargeable Batteries for Medical Devices

This White Paper describes safe methods for powering small medical sensors and surgical instruments that are intelligent by integrating solid state rechargeable batteries that insure safe operation and protect patient health. 100% Non-Cytotoxic Rechargeable Batteries for medical devices from Cymbet are now available. EnerChip solid state batteries were tested using in vitro and in vivo test protocols and shown to have 0% cell lysis. EnerChip™ batteries are uniquely fabricated using standard semiconductor manufacturing processes and packaging techniques. Bare die EnerChips can be combined with other medical device ICs and MEMS into integrated 3D packages.
