Designing Disinfectant-Ready Medical Devices

Frequent exposure to aggressive disinfectants and drugs, as well as repeated physical strain, damages medical device housings and hardware made with commonly used materials. Device failures not only impact quality of patient care but also increase overall operational costs. Choosing a material that can withstand these harsh conditions without compromising durability is essential to preventing cracks, crazes, and premature failure and prolonging housing longevity. This is especially true as portability becomes increasingly important in the medical environment.

Using UVC LEDs to Reduce the Spread of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs)

According to FDA, contact with infected objects and medical devices is a leading cause of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Reducing HAIs by better understanding the effectiveness of antimicrobials, sterilization, and reprocessing of medical devices is one of the agency’s regulatory science priorities for 2017.

The Ultimate Tool for Characterizing Materials during Mechanical Tests and Validating FEA during Component Tests

The Digital Image Correlation Technology (DIC) is a non-contact 3D measurement tool that measures deformation and strain during material testing. DIC is a single system that replaces strain gages, accelerometers, LVDT’s, string potentiometers, extensometers, laser trackers, and surface scanners. The results are full field, and presented as an experimental representation of a finite model.

Polarimetric Radar for Autonomous Drive

In Conjunction with SAE

The automotive industry is moving rapidly from driver assistance applications to safety-critical perception systems that independently make decisions. These perception systems need to be able to reliably detect the orientation and the type of target in any environmental condition. This 30-minute Webinar examines a new polarimetric radar sensor for autonomous and highly automated drive applications. Experts discuss how this technology will dramatically improve the performance and reliability of automotive sensor suites in all environmental conditions.
