One of the demands placed on medical technology is that even the most complex devices have to be produced with the smallest dimensions possible. Designing an optimal system solution requires special skills in the field of air and drive technology: compact, effective technology will always generate waste heat in need of dispersement, regardless of its efficiency rating. This is where high-performance, efficient and low-noise ventilators come into play, but they must feature a long service life. Small, powerful and efficient drive systems offering the utmost in maneuverability and controllability must also form part of the equation. The majority of applications in medical technology would be virtually inconceivable without these highly useful devices. As a world leader in air and drive technology and a development partner, ebm-papst develops a variety of high-tech solutions for medical technology applications. Motors, electronics, gears and sensors: our modular kits can be combined in a range of different ways. ebm-papst will be presenting efficient, compact and dynamic system solutions for medical technology at COMPAMED.
