Choosing the Right Sensor for Your Next Project

Selecting the right sensors for incorporation into medical devices is key to the optimization of design for manufacturing, assembly, packaging, sterilization and testing. Panelists examine the relationship between medical devices and their accessories, and sensor selection. This includes types of sensors available, tolerances for the project, and what can be measured. Also considered are the various types of medical devices, including seven of the most popular sensors used in medical device applications and the pros/cons of each. Learn how sensors are customized for specific applications, given design considerations. Case examples are presented to demonstrate applications, customization and better practices.
