The medical industry is becoming more remote, allowing for home and distance care. Drug delivery devices, remote monitors, sensors, and wireless connectivity are transforming health solutions with electronic wearable devices. To be effective, the improved data collection devices need to conform comfortably to the human body and clothing applications.
The evolution of the health care industry has led to increased home care, and shortened hospital stays, transforming the medical sector globally. This has led to vital innovation in drug delivery devices, medical devices, remote monitors, sensors, and wireless connectivity. Flexible Circuits & Printed Electronics are critical to the health care industry, providing flexible, adaptable, and clean solutions.
Traditional mechanical HMI switches are more cumbersome and harder to clean. To support patient needs as technology becomes more sophisticated, a good HMI system makes a device simpler and more intuitive to the user.
Flexible circuits help deliver an improved patient and doctor experience by providing user-friendly touch sensors with smooth, non-porous surfaces that are easier to clean. Flexible printed circuits are well-designed to fit the user's image of the tasks they need to perform. They enable the ability to give accurate feedback, presenting critical and detailed visual information back to the user. Their capabilities remove design limitations, opening new possibilities for small and tight spaces, uneven and flat surfaces.
The medical industry is developing less invasive medical devices using smaller, thinner, and longer precision disposable tools. As tool sizes decrease, the need for functionality in the limited size increases, requiring higher quality, and accuracy.
Flexible technologies provide a reliable data connection from the handle to the working portion of the tool, producing a lightweight and ergonomic solution for single & multiple-use medical devices. This creates a higher quality inspectable and traceable circuit that decreases the risk for product failure versus traditional wires. Our vertically integrated process delivers the precise and reliable quality that is required for surgical environments.
