Medical Power Supplies Overview
At Emerson Network Power - Embedded Power, our engineers have been designing and developing power supply products for the medical industry for over 35 years. Our products have helped pave the way for advancements in a wide variety of medical applications, including surgical equipment, patient monitoring and therapy systems, patient beds, infusion pumps and ventilators.Opportunities
- U.S. medical technology companies lead the world in medical device production.
- Domestic U.S market for medical and dental equipment was worth $80 billion in 2005.
- Ageing populations in Europe and Japan drive market for medical equipment.
- EHome healthcare equipment market is growing – especially in U.S.
Given that designing modern high-efficiency AC-DC power supplies is a craft in itself, and that medical devices and systems have to undergo strict compliance testing, most designers nowadays elect to use standard commercially available medical power supplies, or seek the help of a specialist power supply company to create a customized unit. Using power supplies that are already pre-approved to the EN60601-1 safety standard helps medical device and system manufacturers speed compliance testing of their own products, and minimizes the risk of them encountering unexpected development problems outside their own area of expertise, which might negatively impact launch targets.
