Medical staffs around the world have experienced physical demands unknown to most during the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in adaptation and processes improvement during this global medical crisis. But what about the medical devices those doctors and nurses rely on to treat patients? Can they be improved upon too? Piezoelectric devices, based on solid-state, zero wear ceramic technology, offers various possibilities to improve intensive care devices.
Runtime Measurement, Smart Metering, Air Bubble Detection
Infusion devices are widely used in intensive care medical treatments for chronic renal diseases, blood transfusions, cardiopulmonary bypass (heart-lung machines), to name a few applications. Piezo components are very compact and can be used as non-invasive, non-intrusive fluid motors. Additionally, due to large scale production, piezo sensors are very cost-effective!
Do you know PI piezo actuators are good enough for NASA?
PI’s ceramic encapsulated PICMA® piezo actuators survived 100 billion cycles of life testing before passing the qualification for the Mars mission on the rover Curiosity. And it’s still going strong, since landing on August 8, 2012!
