Screentec Medical Electrodes
Our company manufactures application specific medical and wellness electrodes. We develop producible electrode model to answer customer needs in accordance to life time, usability and materials. This is to ensure high quality product which is ready for certification process and commercialization.
Most notable user cases are in medical applications and wellness products. Printed electrodes are at their best in new novel applications which require ease of use and measurement of multiple points simultaneously and timely start of the measurement.
We actively answer to market trends:
Single use, use of multiuse electrodes requires cleaning. This takes time from nurses lowering overall effectiveness and time with the patient. With right kind of electrode required work time is reduced and start of measurement or treatment is easier.
Products are part of customers’ service. This increases the perceived quality of the service. Different electrode sizes or versions can be easily be developed for Children, different languages etc.
Different end user cases require different approach, for each product the situation of use and use times need to be considered. For example for single use electrodes wore for extended periods of time a lot of care is given to choosing right materials to reduce wear and tear and keeping the electrode usable for the whole measurement. Electrodes can also be equipped with customized texts explaining use and removal of electrodes per customer needs.
Materials are ISO 10993 compatible, this allows quick product certification process
Product structures are suitable for small batch to large series production
Electrodes sizes from very small of few square cm to very large 800 cm (maximum dimensions are 600 x 900 mm)
Measurement points: exact number of contact points between skin and electrode is defined by the application. In generic one to thirty or more points is possible to do.
Materials; substrates: PET, PVC, PAPER, inks: AG, Ag/Cl, Carbon, Silk Screen printed IR, Heat and UV curable, hydrogels: dispensable or sheet form, adhesives medical certified
Connector: All customized to match with customer electronics or reader, from 1mm pitch upwards, hybrid models possible e.g. 5 leads with 1 mm pitch 2 leads with 2,54 mm pitch and separate connector. All connections even from 20 lead electrode can be connected with one connector.
EMC: Electrodes can be protected from EMC with printing technologies
MRI: Electrodes can be designed to be MRI compatible
Electrode shape is cut with laser or die cutting tools this allows wide array of very complex shapes to be realized with exact dimensions
Well designed and realized electrodes can create constant sales flow to our customers and locks in end users to use their electrodes. Good product design and production process allows rapid ramp-up of series quantities to answer increasing sales.
Electrodes are designed with customer to fulfill requirements of our customers, ISO 13 485 and to ensure best quality to end customer.
