The medical market is a demanding space requiring both high performance and reliability with cost effective solutions. Applications ranging from hospital patient monitoring devices to portable CPAP machines demand everything from high resolution and high accuracy to low-power consumption and small size. As medical devices become ubiquitous throughout hospitals and proliferate into the home, SMI’s small, high performing, and cost effective solutions are ready for customers to develop and manufacture cutting edge solutions.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery, which includes among others endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery, refers to surgical procedures with thin instruments which therefore only require small incisions.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP): Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder affecting millions of people characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing during sleep.
Non-Invasive Blood Pressure Monitoring
Blood pressure is a key vital sign of the cardiovascular system, helping doctors diagnose a variety of medical conditions including hypertension.
Respirators / Ventilators
Ventilators are life saving devices for patients who are unable to breathe unassisted.
Oxygen concentrators are used to concentrate oxygen from a gas supply (typically ambient air) to assist patients in breathing who require higher levels of oxygen than the ambient air.
Dialysis machines help patients with reduced kidney function or kidney failure to filter the blood and remove excess waste and water.
Patients who experience extended stays in the hospital often spend a good amount of time in the bed.
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
When patients suffer from large wounds or severe burns, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) can be used to help speed up the healing process and reduce the risk of infection.
Infusion pumps are used in clinical settings to infuse fluids, medications, or nutrients into patients in controlled doses.
Patient monitoring devices are found in hospitals, outpatient centers, and in ambulances helping doctors monitor the vital parameters of patients in critical condition.
Spirometers are non-invasive devices used to measure the volume of air inspired and expired from the lungs.
