Improving Medical Devices with Force Sensing Technology

This session will explore the exciting new trend toward designing smart medical devices that provide critical force feedback to eliminate guesswork, improve outcomes, and increase consistency. Technical topics covered will include the unique advantages of force sensing resistor technology over traditional technologies such as strain gauges and load cells. These advantages include simpler electronics, wider dynamic range, ease of integration, and lower cost. We will highlight how thin and flexible sensors have enhanced a wide range of medical device applications to providing force feedback and make the products smart.

Effects of Medical Sterilization on Optical Fibers

Optical fibers are successfully used in various areas of medicine, including urology, general surgery, ophthalmology, cardiology, endoscopy, dentistry and medical sensing. Prior to use inside a human body the fiber must be sterilized. Many types of treatments are known as effective sterilization techniques. OFS studied the effects of three sterilization conditions on optical fiber: multiple autoclaving, treatment with ethylene oxide, and treatment with gamma rays. Dr. Andrei A. Stolov will discuss these effects on key optical and mechanical properties of the fibers. Presenter Dr. Andrei Stolov Coatings Scientist OFS View the Tech Talk here.

Aqueous Critical Cleaning

Critical Cleaning is a process of removing undesirable contaminants from the surface of products or manufacturing equipment to a desired level where value or functionality is impacted by undesired residuals.  These Important factors in aqueous cleaning include what makes up an aqueous cleaner, the water, and how to choose an aqueous cleaner.  Once a detergent is chosen the 9 variables or B-A-T-H-O-C-A-R-D are reviewed to understand the variables that go into cleaning:1)    Before clean2)    Agitation3)    Time4)    Heat5)    Orientation6)    Chemistry (Concentration)7)    After-clean8)    Rinsing9)    Drying  Presenter: Jeff Phillips, Sr. Manager, Science & MarketingView the Tech Talk here.
