Sensors Help To Optimize Medical Care

Source: First Sensor AG


Medical care of patients is becoming increasingly complex. Sensor technologies are playing a more and more important role in making medical devices more reliable and in simplifying their use for doctors, hospital and care staff or even, patients.

We know that medical technology saves lives. Sensor applications in the area of medical technology must therefore satisfy particular requirements, which First Sensor has been successfully managing for more than 30 years:

  • Maximum precision and system stability
  • Development and production according to EN ISO 13485 (Medical Quality Standard)
  • Extreme miniaturization and low energy consumption
  • Long development, approval and usage times require the sensors to be available for a particularly long period of time

Successes and examples of use

Medical technology is one of the largest and strongest-growing areas of application in which First Sensor is successfully involved. The company delivers critically important components for OEM device applications:

  • Ventilators
  • Spirometers
  • CPAP devices
  • Anesthesia machines
  • Dialysis machines
  • Blood pressure devices
  • Glucose meters
