The medical field has seen numerous changes in both the knowledge of medicine and the tools they use. Part of the changes in the tools they use deal with the introduction of electro-mechanical assemblies being involved. It is strange to think that with the exact nature of medicine, there would ever be a time when the tools of the trade would be rudimentary and plain at best. But as with most things, as knowledge and technology improved, so, too, did the way medicine was practiced.
While manufacturers do try to maintain a quality product that does its job well, being contracted to create products for the medical field takes on a new sense of importance simply because lives are on the line. In the process of using an electrical signal to create mechanical movement (the essence of an electro-mechanical assembly), there is no room for error
So, just where exactly can someone see an electro-mechanical assembly in action in the medical field? Here are three examples:
Medical Cart Assemblies — Med carts are used all over hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical facilities. They can do everything, but they are also ideal mobile stations for maintaining electronic communication between a patient & their doctor.
Defibrillators — If you’ve ever known someone who had their heart stop & needed immediate attention, defibrillators are life-savers. It may be one of the few medical tools that a doctor hopes they never have to use, but when the time comes, you need optimum performance.
Surgical Robotics — Over time, more and more surgeries have taken on a seemingly other-worldly feel as more robotics have made their way into the operating room. Through the use of these precise devices, celebrated surgeons are able to get pinpoint accuracy during a procedure. These robotics have also been at the forefront of minimally invasive surgery, which is very welcome by patients.
Electro-mechanical assemblies are meant to make life easier, and given the amount of stressful situations that can arise by being in the medical field, it is imperative that any electro-mechanical assembly do its job & do it well. This, of course, means finding a trusted, well-credentialed manufacturer that takes the time to understand the priorities of the medical field, as well as strive to make their product outdo expectations.
