The Increasing Trend of Miniaturization has Resulted in a Total Transformation of the Industry
Ever-improving nanotechnology and semiconductor designs are revolutionising the medical electronics industry and taking the healthcare industry to new heights of patient care quality. Portable, wearable, and implantable medical devices with foldable printed circuit boards (PCB) and embedded chips in a patient’s body are able to monitor patient health outside of the clinical environment. This is helping doctors in providing prompt assistance to patients in medical emergencies with better clinical aid. This research service outlines some of key trends in medical electronics in India.
• The Indian medical electronics industry has witnessed double-digit growth owing to the rise of lifestyle diseases, increasing urbanization, healthcare facilities’ expansions, and growing healthcare awareness. In addition, extensive research in the fields of nanotechnology and semiconductor design has resulted in a transformation of the healthcare industry.
• Medical technologies are rapidly miniaturizing resulting from the development of new, high-density digital chips that allow the integration of multiple functions into one electronic module. The driving factors of miniaturization are the expansion of medical research and the diagnosis of symptoms that are available to the physician.
• Also, the healthcare industry demands small, portable, multifunctional devices. As a result, medical electronics are being miniaturized to offer maximum information during a single use of the equipment.
Miniaturization—A Result of High Tech Semiconductor Design
• Embedded processing technology and microcontrollers play a significant role in the field of medical electronics.
• Portable, miniature, and battery-powered medical devices outside the clinical environment are made possible through digital signal processing (DSP) which is capable of providing functionality that can communicate patient data through wireless signals to the physician.
• Microcontrollers have a unique feature of ultra-low power consumption which enhances battery life and thus enables portable, wearable, and implantable medical devices. As a result, the sizes and costs of portable health devices are reduced, thus enhancing portability and ease of use.
• The future of medical electronics is aimed at early diagnosis and prevention wherein digitized patient information can be accessed remotely. With respect to the insides of such systems, operation of these systems are carried out by nano and miniature connectors that are fit into the designs, enabling increased portability, lower weight, and product sterilization.
• The use of micro and nano connectors to support miniaturization or the reuse of the instrument will become a priority in every medical device.
• By developing innovative chips, semiconductor companies are taking the healthcare industry to a different level of quality. Semiconductors are the foundation for new designs and products that are focused to serve areas of health, disease management, and wellness.
