TE Connectivity to showcase tech to mitigate device design challenges at MD&M West



TE Connectivity (TE), a leader in connectivity and sensor solutions, will showcase technologies designed to mitigate medical device design challenges at MD&M West this month, Booth #3149. Product experts from TE will be on site to discuss how TE’s customized sensing, connectivity and minimally invasive device solutions are helping to transform patient care.

Terry Merlihan, TE regional sales manager, noted, “Sensor intelligence is helping medical device manufacturers develop home-health monitoring devices that allow patients to live healthier, more mobile lives. Sensor-equipped medical devices for in-home use are on the rise, and options that didn’t exist before are becoming a reality, such as in-home dialysis treatment. That’s the kind of next-generation patient care that drives TE’s sensor innovation.” 

TE will have its medical sensing solutions on display at MD&M West, including piezo film sensors used to monitor vital signs such as heart rhythm, photo optic sensors for pulse oximetry to measure oxygen saturation and pulse, and ultrasonic sensors to detect air bubbles and medication levels during infusion.

Also at the booth will be minimally invasive device solutions for OEM environments from TE’s Creganna medical product portfolio as well as TE’s medical, surgical and cable solutions, such as sheaths, interconnects and tubing.

Hands-on product demonstrations and an interactive display at TE’s booth will enable visitors to experience technologies that are helping to improve patient health, provide better treatment insights and shorten recovery times.
