Sensors have a major role to play in enabling the to mobile health. That’s because sensor technology can help make up for the fact that the home, unlike a healthcare setting, doesn’t have well-trained staff available to operate equipment, said Pete Smith, TE Connectivity‘s senior manager of product knowledge and training for sensor solutions, during a Medical Design & Outsourcing interview last week.

TE Connectivity products highlighted at this year’s MD&M West included:

  • AD-101 ultrasonic sensors, for non-invasive continuous monitoring of fluid for air bubble detection;
    Photo Optic sensors — a key component for non-invasively measuring blood and oxygenation level;
    Patient Monitoring 400 series, which provides ±0.1°C accuracy per EN-12470 requirements, and is compatible NTC patient temperature monitoring sensors;
    Board level 1620 series — a disposable medical pressure sensor that measures pressure from –50 to 300 mmHG for applications requiring AAMI compliance.
