The design, development and supply of the magnetic rotation mover and sonographic pullback mover were carried out for HITACHI USA sales office.
It relates to a medical device that enables controlled movement of the examination probe within the patient's body.
The probe is clamped in the adapter made of magnetic stainless steel and is carried by two rotating magnetic pulleys. Rotating or sliding motion is dependent on the type of used adapter.
The mover design enables the upper part with the drive pulleys to be rotatable by 90˚ against the handle on which the display is located thereby facilitating easy operation in both applications. The device is programmable to suit the method of medical examination. The sequence of rotation angles and speed during the rotational movement, path length and linear movement speed of the probe is adjustable from the control display panel.
The device is designed to meet stringent regulatory requirements for medical devices, material safety and the option of using a liquid disinfectant.
