Medical

The medical device sector covers a very broad field of applications and increasingly manufacturers are turning to Flintec to help them solve their weighing and force measurement challenges.

This application sector requires almost exclusively customized solutions as no two types of equipment are the same.

Industry Approved sensors

At Flintec we combine our ISO 13485 Quality Management System with our understanding of the medical device industry to work with clients to satisfy their needs for highly accurate and reliable measuring technology.

Today we provide clients with sensors for infusion pumps, weighing systems for continuous renal replacement therapy equipment, precision scales for infant incubators and a range of sensors for weighing patients in hospital beds, patient hoists and exercise equipment.

Our product design capabilities extend from sensor development, electronic circuit design, software, plastic molding, aluminum and steel casting and beyond to product certification.

When you engage Flintec, you can be assured that our manufacturing operations are audited by NQA routinely to ensure continuous compliance with ISO13485.

We are also routinely audited by our medical device customers and that our design history files are maintained using FDA recommended document control systems.

Available load cells

Our standard list of load cells for applications in the medical sector include the following:

Example Applications

Baby Scales

Flintec offers the service of design, development and manufacturer of baby scales. Using unique weighing technology, our designs result in extended battery life, very low weight, dual range OIML Class III and NTEP certified weighing and a range of stylish and practical construction.

Hospital Beds

The Flintec load cell Model BK2 shear beam is ideally suited for bed weighing applications due to very low overall high and compact dimensions. Certified to both OIML and NTEP across the range of capacities from 500kg to 2000kg. Flintec also supplies a range of customized load cell design which can be integrated into castor mechanisms.

Infant Incubators

Flintec is the premier supplier of infant incubator and baby warmer weighing solutions. The ultra-low profile Flintec range of Planar Beams and bespoke measurement electronics can be supplied either as components or as complete scale solutions. Our ISO13485 Quality Management System for Medical Devices ensures peace of mind our customers.

Infusion Pumps

As a manufacturer of strain gauges and force sensors, we can design and manufacture any size or shape of force sensor for infusion pumps. We typically supply customers with plunger disk or blade form sensors designed to meet the challenging standards required by the medical device industry.

Patient Hoists

Flintec has extensive knowledge of the patient handling market and serves manufacturers of mobile hoists, ceiling hoists and raising/standing aids. Bespoke load cells, electronics and scales can be developed to suit any specification. Certified or non-certified designs are available.

Exercise Equipment

Force sensors from Flintec are incorporated into the cranks of exercise equipment providing accurate measurement of work rate. We can supply non-amplified or amplified sensors in a variety of capacities and configurations to suit almost any type of equipment.
