Walt Maclay, President of Voler Systems (https://www.volersystems.com), has been selected to speak on "Data Acquisition for Medical Devices"at BIOMEDevice's Innovation Briefs on December 9, 2009. BIOMEDevices is the premier event for bringing together industry leaders in medical devices. The show offers a compelling mix of new medical technology and biopharmaceutical developments.
In This Issue: A Fun & Interesting Project: Anti-Gravity Treadmill AlterG is the creator of a customized Anti-Gravity Treadmill for athletic training and medical rehabilitation [...]
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.
Calibration and Test System Recently Voler Systems designed and built production test equipment to test a disposable cardiac ablation catheter and calibrate thermocouples [...]
An aging system triggered system engineers to search for an updated leak monitoring system for fuel storage tanks at Vandenberg AFB. The system engineers needed to replace the equipment that was obsolete and expensive to maintain. Voler was chosen to design, manufacture and install a new reliable system.
Voler provided component selection and evaluation, prototype and production board design for an innovative webcam design. Voler partnered with a client in finding a solution to transfer the design to an overseas manufacturer that produces the production board inexpensively and with high quality.
Voler developed a circuit to measure the impedance of tissue inside the heart to determine which part of the tissue is infarcted (dead) for use in a prototype cardiac catheter. We worked with a medical device start-up to implement an innovative method to reliably detect the minute differences between healthy and infarcted heart tissue.
Microprocessor Design Our embedded microprocessor design consultants have developed dozens of embedded designs with microprocessors and digital logic circuit design. We have used [...]
