Digi-Key’s IoT - delivering the future, today: Medical
The Internet of Things (IoT) is fuelling innovation in nearly every part of our lives. Simply connecting the ‘things’ that were never connected before is leading to new data insights that translate into meaningful change.
Wireless coexistence for remote patient monitoring
The demand for wireless medical applications such as remote patient monitoring, real-time diagnostic analysis, smart surgical systems, and implantable sensors has grown over the last couple of years. Thanks to implanted medical devices, many patients live an almost normal life without having their mobility compromised. Popular implants include cardiac pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, nerve stimulators (functional electrical stimulation, FE...
Safety-critical systems for hospital cyclotrons
Omniflex has continued its partnership with Edinburgh University Hospital, upgrading and extending its safety-critical radiation protection system to cater for its new cyclotron. The original system, installed by Omniflex in 2007, has been updated at a time when Edinburgh University is looking to increase production of radioactive isotopes for its positron emission tomography (PET) scanning facilities.
Biosensor solution’s low power allows long operating time
In stock at distributor Digi-Key is ams’ AS7038RB biosensor solution which is based on photoplethysmography (PPG) and electrocardiogram (ECG).
Using photonics to detect bowel cancer
Early intervention could prevent many of the 160,000 deaths from colon cancer in Europe each year. Colonoscopies, the gold standard for spotting bowel cancer early, can still miss up to 20% of precancerous cells. But now, thanks to a pan-European health consortium, a new concept that uses photonics to help doctors spot bowel cancer could soon prevent up to half of these deaths and save €9bn in reduced healthcare costs.
