Sensors and pumps – small and effective

It is not possible to imagine the medical daily routine without sensors and pumps. They are valuable assistants in job routines in hospitals, for example in the case of intravenous infusion pumps, but also in the daily routine of patients, for example infusion pumps for diabetics. What’s more, they play a very important role in patient safety – like sensors that measure temperature, nerve activity and pulse or pumps that support the heart. Read more about that in the current Special August.
