2 Key elements to recognizing larger margins for your minimally invasive device

Recent technological advancements in the medical field, coupled with the abundance of lifestyle-related diseases and chronic disorders, have caused a significant upswing in minimally invasive medical procedures. Minimally invasive procedures bear less risk, cause less discomfort to patients and have much quicker recovery rates than traditional surgery.  In 2020 the minimally invasive surgical devices market […]

Case study: 50% reduction in production time and cost for a laser catheter sensor

Managing the OEM-CM relationship is complicated, being influenced by the medical device’s complex production process, legal aspects (product copyrights, patents, and production & design technology rights), market fluctuations, production variations (scalability), vendor management, and the interpersonal aspects.  How does a medical device OEM find the right contract manufacturer and safeguard themself from falling into a […]

Interventional Neurology for Neurovascular Disorders

Neurovascular (or cerebrovascular) disorders are a set of conditions affecting the brain and spinal cord (neuro) that are the result of bleeding or deficiency of blood flow (affecting the vasculature or arteries and veins that carry blood) to one or more parts of the brain and spinal cord. Since the brain requires the most amount […]

Sensor technology used in minimally invasive diagnostics

Sensor technology is at the forefront of minimally invasive diagnostics. The effectiveness of using sensor tipped catheters is their ability to be steered through the blood vessels to the site of imaging. There are varying levels of sensitivity associated with steering the catheter. Greater precision means better medical outcomes: patients will not experience discomfort and […]

Design Considerations of Electromagnetic sensors for Catheters

Catheters equipped with sensory technology such as electromagnetic sensing are an emerging technology that is extremely useful in 3D imaging for interventional cardiology procedures. The medical sector has been trying to find alternatives to using prevalent forms of pre-surgical or pre-interventional diagnostic imaging, including 2D imaging by fluoroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging. The main reason […]

What is Transcranial Electrical Stimulation?

Transcranial electrical stimulation or TES is a broad term encompassing all procedures involving the application of low intensity, weak electrical stimulation applied at specific locations of the brain or spinal cord. This is essentially a non-invasive technique and there is a number of ways TES can be administered, including the use of wearable devices placed […]
