Improving Quality of Life. With Piezo Power at the Heart of Your Application.

Medical technology is developing rapidly in order to improve the quality of patients’ lives and to establish new methods of therapy. Simultaneously, the demands of the products used in these systems are increasing. Piezo technology can contribute significantly to this progress – especially in the context of miniaturizing appliances, but also in smart patient monitoring or more gentle therapy options as well as lab process automation.

Components for MedTech and life science instruments must be fast, reliable and energy efficient. Piezo-driven applications enable minimally invasive treatments such as fast endoscopic examinations with high resolution or gentle catheter ablation, e.g. within the heart. Miniature medical implants such as hearing aids use the acoustic waves of piezos to replicate limited sensory functions. Moreover, in vitro diagnostics and portable medical devices make use of piezo functions, e.g. for precise liquid handling in a small space. New and emerging therapies such as incisionless surgery are only possible using ultrasonic technology with piezo elements. Our customized piezo components, manufactured and assembled in a cleanroom environment, increase the quality of life for patients everywhere.

Expanding the Visual Field of Endoscopes
Piezo technology has a part in improving minimally invasive diagnostic procedures. It makes e.g. endoscopic applications faster, more powerful and, therefore, more patient-friendly. The smallest piezo tubes are used, for example, in scanning fiber endoscopy; allowing the visual field of the endoscope to be significantly extended.

Generating Non-Invasive Ultrasound Within the Body
Generating Non-Invasive Ultrasound Within the Body
Ultrasound technology is used in medical technology, among others, to perform so-called incisionless surgeries. Piezoelectric transducers serve this purpose perfectly: Placed extracorporeal, they project an ultrasonic focus into the body. By absorbing the acoustic energy generated by the sound waves, tissue areas can be manipulated in a targeted manner.

Creating 3,000 Nanoliter Droplets per Second
Creating 3,000 Nanoliter Droplets per Second
The requirements of fluid handling in medical processes such as in vitro diagnostics are extremely demanding: Very small volumes of liquids with different characteristics need dosing or have to be moved with high precision. The technology used must be able to implement shock-free dosing, fast mixing, or separation of fluids and particles as well as the generation of perfect droplets and contactless mixing or sorting tasks.

Enabling Tissue Management with Ultrasonic Handpieces
Enabling Tissue Management with Ultrasonic Handpieces
Ultrasound-operated handpieces such as ultrasonic scalpels, scissors or scalers use acoustic waves to facilitate the processing of hard or soft tissue and are used more and more frequently in medicine, e.g. for minimally invasive surgical procedures or in dentistry.

Efficiently Generating Aerosols in Mesh Nebulizers
Chronic diseases such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, or the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but also bronchitis and the flu necessitate a comprehensive medical treatment. Medical nebulizers atomize medication so very finely that it can be inhaled very deeply into the lungs, therefore, making the therapy of sometimes life-threatening lung diseases possible.

Making Patient Monitoring More Intelligent with Ultrasound
Intelligent Patient Monitoring with Ultrasonic Measurement Technology
Viruses and other infections are particularly dangerous for people with pre-existing conditions, e.g., of the kidneys or cardiovascular system. In regards to the treatment and therapy of such illnesses, the requirements for the medical devices used are also constantly increasing. Piezo technology offers numerous possibilities for improvement: Piezo ultrasonic transducers, for example, make intensive care devices such as infusion systems more intelligent and make the supervision of vital body functions easier.
