Linear Motion Design Considerations for Medical Device OEMs
Electromechanical linear actuators have become integral components of modern medical devices because of their high precision, accuracy, and ability to deliver repeatable motion control. Patient comfort, positioning and mobility, robotic surgery, imaging equipment, infusion, and pumping are just a few of the applications where the use of linear actuators has revolutionized the way medical devices are designed, improving patient outcomes and enhancing the overall quality of care.
For medical device and equipment designs using electric linear actuators, detailing exact requirements for performance and reliability will help ensure successful implementation. In addition, how a motion control partner meets these requirements, as well as how they engage along the development and validation process, will be critical to meeting budget and time constraints.
In this white paper, sponsored by Tolomatic, Inc., learn important considerations in specifying and applying linear actuators, including factors that impact operating environments, human factors, serviceability, and maintenance.
