Motion Control for Medical Devices

Today, motion control has moved well beyond its traditional uses in manufacturing. Medical devices, automotive, robotics and personal tools like smartphones and tablets have all benefited from motion control subsystems with lower cost, lower power, and smaller footprints and packaging due to better miniaturization. The key to harnessing the complexity of the electronics and embedded [...]

Software: Testing Motion Detection for Wearable Devices

Active Mind Technology provides golfers with stats and trending information about their golf game. Their product, Game Golf, uses GPS to track location, accelerometers to track swing and related information, and uses Near Field Communication (NFC) tags to identify each club. They approached Voler Systems after early prototypes exhibited erratic behavior. Because of their commitment to quality they [...]

Motion Control Projects

Today, motion control has moved well beyond its traditional manufacturing industry. Medical devices, automotive, robotics and personal tools like smartphones and tablets benefit from the advancement of low cost, low power, and miniaturization of motion control. Motion Control in a Rehabilitation Device Voler developed this rehabilitation device for a startup who needed it designed and [...]

How to Avoid Big Errors Using Accelerometers

Accelerometers can be used to measure not only acceleration but also vibration. Historically, accelerometers have seen widespread use in manufacturing production lines and automotive electronics. They are now widely used in portable electronic devices such as cell phones, video game controllers, and cameras. Medical devices increasingly incorporate them to add capabilities to measure motion such as the rate and depth of chest compression.

A Fun & Interesting Project: Anti-Gravity Treadmill

Voler Systems provided two broad services to AlterG: debug and re-design of the main controller board and providing guidance and advice on how to get FDA approval to enter the medical market.

During the development process AlterG was having difficulty with static electricity causing system resets. Voler Systems was quickly able to solve the problem. By optically isolating the control buttons and providing enhanced shielding and grounding, we eliminated the failures because any static discharge would not couple into the board where the microprocessor was located. We provided the controller circuit board design and tested working prototype boards.
