There has been a growing trend amongst electronic medical device manufacturers to make both single-use and reusable devices more portable. As electronic medical devices become more compact, the components inside of them need to shrink as well. When designing a device intended for use in the medical or healthcare industry, precision is mandatory. Some examples of electronic single-patient or disposable medical devices are surgical tools, syringe pumps, endoscopic tools, and ventilators.
With the improvements to Lithium Ion battery technology, the limits imposed by power cords are a thing of the past. Smaller, lighter, and more portable devices are flooding the medical market. With use in both laboratories and field studies, the precise control offered by motorized medical devices has become a necessary part of the modern medical professional toolkit. At the heart of these devices are micro motors, steppers and mini servo motors.
