You develop medical devices.
Festo supports you all the way from designing to developing and producing suitable subsystems.
We help you manage risks when developing products for medical applications, based on the ISO 13485 standard and FDA stipulations. That makes it easier for you to get your medical devices approved and certified.
Smaller, lighter and quieter: piezo valves in medical technology
Piezo valves are amazingly well suited to valve functions in the field of medicine.
- No heat build-up
- Low energy consumption
- Proportional characteristics
- Very short switching times
- Compatible with oxygen
- Sturdy and durable
CPAP ventilation/oxygen therapy for mobile applications
Small and lightweight piezo valves regulate the gas flows and pressures that release oxygen in infinitely variable steps.
Stationary ventilation in a clinical environment
Precise regulation and control of fluid flows from the blood and dialysate stream are crucial when it comes to efficient dialysis.
Piezo valves, media valves, pneumatic valves, proportional pressure regulators
An example from eye surgery shows pneumatically operated surgical tools being controlled.
Pneumatic control unit comprising solenoid valves and piezo valves for the following functions:
- Actuating surgical tools
- Vacuum-supported extraction
- Conveying fluids
Regulation of fluid flows, gas flows and slime at dental service units
The various instruments are controlled independently of one another by switching valves, proportional valves, pumps and compressors.
Training torsos in medical training simulate breathing, pulse and bodily fluids, such as tears.
Intelligent control systems are used for simulating air and fluid movements.
Regulation of gas flows and pressures in medical mattresses for nursing beds.
Piezo valves actuate the chambers individually – quietly and with a soft-start function.
