Drive systems for medical technology.

Inside the body or in the operating room: We improve patients' quality of life.

Applications in medical technology place high demands on drive components: Precision, sterilizability, smooth running as well as low heat build-up in DC and EC drives. maxon medical specializes in the development and production of microdrives for such applications, strictly in accordance with the medical standard ISO 13485. maxon medical finds a matching drive and controller for each application, or will work with customers to develop a tailored solution. Applications include insulin pumps, surgical robots, precision hand-held tools, prostheses, and many others.
