Force Sensors in Medical Applications to Ameliorate the Value Based Care Concept

Published By: IndustryARC Published On : 01-Jun-2015

The integration of electronics and technology has led to the development of advanced software and the rafting of this software to basic restorative instruments has changed the state of the medical device industry significantly. The presence of electronic component and automated tools in the medical devices builds the viability of patient care and gives steady, anticipated monitoring of a patient’s health. The developing field of biomedical designing is a key ascribe to these creative advances in surgical instruments, as well as aided in improving health standards. With regards to outlining a new medical equipment or related device, experts concentrate significantly on the most productive and cost effective elements to incorporate into their medical devices. These components incorporate exactness, size, expense, and all the more imperatively to the medicinal world, safety and consistency. Force Sensors are acknowledged by the researchers and medical equipment designers as the electronic component with high precision that fits the needs of both the doctors and patients.

Force Sensors are used in numerous sorts of medical devices such as wearable devices, surgical devices, medical training devices and many more. Medical devices are designed to monitor the patient’s key metrics such as blood pressure, drug pumping and other specific applications depending upon the magnitude of the pressure force. The function of these devices is to detect the force applied on a particular area and relay that information to the electronic output. Researchers from Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering and John A. Paulson School of Engineering & Applied Science have come up with the pop up force sensor to enhance the effectiveness of robotic surgery. This new category of sensors works on the principal of Light Intensity Modulation (LIM) that can measure force in terms of millinewton. The advent of these miniscule force sensors has broadened the scope of medical applications in the endoscopy and laparoscopy. Researchers from Twenty University introduced a paradigm of world’s smallest hand force sensor for patients in the rehabilitation centers.

Sensor-enabled medical devices have witnessed robust demand majorly in North American and European market, providing metrics for diagnoses and assisting doctors in their treatment processes. The data conveyed by power sensors enhances persistent results, as well as gives a standard of consistency, which is a typical objective healthcare expert. Force-sensing technologies have turned out to be a key addition in an assortment of healthcare equipment. The capacity of the gadget to keep up legitimate communication with the operator is a desired function that has become standard and acknowledged by the leading hospitals and medical associations.
