Sensor and connectivity provider, TE Connectivity (TE), is exhibiting at MD&M West, displaying technologies designed to mitigate medical device design challenges.
The company is displaying its medical solutions at MD&M West, including piezo film sensors used to monitor vital signs such as heart rhythm, photo optic sensors for pulse oximetry to measure oxygen saturation and pulse, and ultrasonic sensors to detect air bubbles and medication levels during infusion.
Visitors can have hands-on product demonstrations accompanied by an interactive display that enables visitors to experience technologies that are helping to improve patient health, provide better treatment insights and shorten recovery times.
Also on hand are TE product experts, who are discussing how TE’s customised sensing, connectivity and minimally invasive device solutions are helping to transform patient care.
Terry Merlihan, TE regional sales manager, said: “Sensor intelligence is helping medical device manufacturers develop home-health monitoring devices that allow patients to live healthier, more mobile lives. Sensor-equipped medical devices for in-home use are on the rise, and options that didn’t exist before are becoming a reality, such as in-home dialysis treatment. That’s the kind of next-generation patient care that drives TE’s sensor innovation.”
