Reed Switches

Medical

The medical industry demands durable and efficient components that can work for millions of operations without degradation, in applications such as Pace-makers and Neuro-stimulators, but the same components are also used in non-critical devices such as hearing aids and pill-cams, and also in diagnostics equipments such as in scanners and X-ray machines. Highly reliable devices are required in the medical industry to ensure a long field life and ultra-miniature reed sensors perform excellently in lower power circuits. An added advantage is that they can work without drawing power for operation, which make them especially useful in battery connected devices such as in-canal hearing aids. As applications in the medical industry are cropping up quite fast, we list how reed switches and reed sensors find themselves in the most widely used areas.

 

Reed Sensors in Pediatric Feeding tubes

Reed Sensors in Pediatric Feeding tubes

Pediatric Feeding tubes are used by nursing homes and hospitals on babies and young children. To know the location of the end of feeding tube specifically in cases where the feeding tube should be guided past the stomach into the duodenum our reed sensors can be used. Continue reading

Magnet sensors in motorized Hospital Beds

Hospital beds come with a a few adjustment buttons that either raise the upper portion of the mattress or fold the lower portion of the mattress to an inverted-v to help support the legs. Continue reading

 

Reed sensors in canal hearing aids

Reed sensors in canal hearing aids

A tiny reed sensor or a reed switch fitted inside the hearing aid helps the user adjust volume levels and power cycle the device with an external "wand" or magnet. Continue reading

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Spirometers

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Spirometers

Lung function tests (or pulmonary function tests, PFT) evaluate how much air a person’s lungs can hold, how quickly he or she can move air in and out of the lungs, and how well the lungs add oxygen to the blood and remove carbon dioxide from the blood… Continue reading

 

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Vagus Nerve Stimulators

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Vagus Nerve Stimulators

The Vagus nerve in the neck is one of the primary communication lines to the brain. Vagus Nerve stimulators are implantable devices which control the stimulation of impulses to the brain. When a patient senses a seizure coming, a magnet is used over… Continue reading

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Pacemakers and Defibrillators

Reed switches and Reed sensors in Pacemakers and Defibrillators

Tachycardia and Bradycardia are problems in which the heart beats at a rate faster or slower than the normal human heart rate. Fibrillation is the uncontrolled beating of different parts of the heart. People with such heart problems need pacemakers or defibrillators… Continue reading

 

Reed switches, Reed sensors and Magnet sensors in Automatic dentist's drill activation

Reed switches, Reed sensors and Magnet sensors in Automatic dentist’s drill activation

A reed sensor finds application in the tiny tip of a dentist’s drill to work as a pressure sensor, which starts or stops the drilling. Only when the drill is pressed against a hard surface, like teeth, which in turn moves the spring loaded magnet closer to the reed sensor…. Continue reading
