Describe an innovation your company developed between 2012 and the present and its potential application in medical devices.
As a magnetically operated sensor, one specific use includes being the critical component in a "wake-up" circuit for devices that may sit on a doctor's office shelf for up to 18 months prior to use. Another purpose is as a "mode changer" in hearing aids to shift into "telecoil coupling mode" so that the patient can better hear a phone conversation. In insulin pumps, it offers a margin of safety against falsely triggering insulin injections. In insulin pens, it offers custom dosing of insulin injections for diabetes patients.
How does the innovation work? Please describe the technology.
Describe how your innovation adds value for medical device OEMs. Can it make work processes more efficient, reduce costs, improve quality, or improve patient outcomes?
