In medical and healthcare applications Murata's medical sensors enable improved care and a better quality of life for patients. Medical sensors increase the intelligence of life supporting transplants, and they can be used in new types of patient monitoring applications that allow patients to lead more independent lives. Detecting signals triggered by symptoms helps optimize medication and prevent serious attacks of illness.

Medical Sensor Benefits:

  • Small size
  • Outstanding signal to noise ratio
  • Excellent accuracy and stability
  • Low power consumption

Application Examples:

  • Patient monitoring applications: ballistocardiography based vital sign detection, movement and position monitoring
  • Diagnostic and treatment equipment positioning applications: high precision positioning of equipment such as surgery tables, therapeutic medical beds, prostheses and medical imaging equipment
  • Pacemakers: activity and posture monitoring
  • Invasive pressure measurement applications: measuring of blood, brain or abdominal pressure invasively, for example
  • Non-invasive pressure measurement applications: measuring of blood, eye pressure, etc., non-invasively or measuring barometric pressure for reference purposes
