Welcome to TDK at Medica 2019, the world’s largest event for the medical sector. TDK is presenting its broad portfolio of components, sensors and healthcare products. Convince yourself about the innovative EPCOS products. We’re looking forward to your visit!
PowerHap – Unprecedented haptic feedback
Compared to conventional technologies, the PowerHap™ offers an unprecedented haptic feedback with very high forces of up to 50 N and a wide variety of waveforms. Four square designs with edge lengths from 9 to 26 mm and insertion heights of only 1.1 to 2.3 mm are available. These actuators can be installed directly under flat surfaces. As a result, PowerHap enables a high degree of water- or dustproofing, which is required in applications with high hygienic requirements such as medical equipment. The portfolio is supplemented by four slim designs for lateral mounting.
Piezobrush – simple generation of cold plasma
Piezobrush® is based on TDK CeraPlas™, a cold plasma generator. The battery-powered handset is able to ionize different gases – including air – under normal pressure. Because the temperature remains below 50 °C, heat-sensitive materials can be treated with plasma.
In medical and hospital technology, the device can be used to treat wounds or to clean devices. Another field of application is the activation of surfaces, such as dental implants. In addition, unpleasant odors can be eliminated.
Silmee – Versatile activity tracker
The Silmee™ W11 is a waterproof wristband activity tracker, which can be operated for up to two weeks on a single battery charge. A wide variety of data can be recorded. These include, for example, number of steps, distance and calories consumed. In addition, it can track sleep duration and states are recorded. All data is displayed in an easy-to-understand form and can be transferred to smartphones via a special app.
Thanks to its leading expertise in the development of magnetic compo-nents, TDK has succeeded in developing special biomagnetic sensors. They feature an extremely high sensitivity to changes in magnetic field strengths. They are thus able to detect even the very weak magnetic fields of muscles and can be used, for example, for the non-invasive monitoring of cardiac activity.
