The medical industry or healthcare industry is essential and plays a vital role by providing life-saving devices, drugs, and services to patients in need of care and treatment. The medical devices include X-ray computed tomography scanners, injection syringes, artificial hip and knee joints, dental implants, catheters, contact lenses, hearing aids, etc.
The accuracy of medical devices has a direct impact on public health. To ensure the safety of mankind, the medical industry is strictly regulated by high standards. Mitutoyo presents a wide range of measuring instruments for quality checks to achieve high-precision and high-accuracy end products.
Orthopedic implants are medical devices that are used to replace or support damaged/diseased bones or joints in the musculoskeletal system. These implants are designed to mimic the function of the natural bones and joints, and may include screws, plates, rods, and prosthetic joints. They can be made from a variety of materials, including metal alloys, ceramics, and polymers, and are often customized to fit the unique needs of each patient. Because of the advanced materials, techniques, and even custom forms, rigorous quality control is something that is taken very seriously by manufacturers.
Dental implants consist of a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone, which serves as an anchor for a replacement tooth or bridge. These implants are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and can provide a more permanent and comfortable solution to traditional dentures or bridges. As they will be used every day with hope of not being replaced once again, the quality of the implant must be exceptional.
Syringes are the most thought of device when it comes to the medical industry and have many uses. More specifically, the needle on the syringe that comes in various sizes requires rigorous quality control to ensure that they are fabricated to these specifications. The selection of the appropriate gauge for a particular procedure is important to ensure optimal safety, comfort, and effectiveness. For example, smaller gauge needles are typically used for less viscous fluids, while larger gauge needles may be used for thicker fluids or medications that require faster administration. The use of syringe gauges is closely regulated to ensure patient safety, with strict quality control standards in place to ensure that needles are manufactured to the highest standards of precision and accuracy.
Made from high-quality, surgical-grade stainless steel or other specialized materials, and available in a range of sizes and shapes to suit different surgical needs, blades such as scalpels are no exception when it comes to quality control. To protect the patient and practitioner wielding them, the manufacturing and material quality must be unparalleled.
