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 that enables elite athletes or those who are recovering from injury or surgery to improve mobility and health. AlterG uses air to lift a person and reduce their body weight which lessens the impact on their body. AlterG prevents repetitive stress injuries in elite athletes when training and conditioning. AlterG also speeds the natural healing of physical injuries. Read More Calibration of Disposable Catheters Recently Voler Systems designed and built production test equipment to test a disposable cardiac ablation catheter and calibrate thermocouples embedded in it. Previously Voler Systems performed accuracy calculations for the system including the catheter, the console it plugs into, and the calibration of the catheter. Following this accuracy calculation, our client, a leading medical device corporation, requested that we develop a test and calibration system designed to achieve the precise accuracy required with high reliability and repeatability. The tester that Voler built achieved a calibration repeatability of 0.03° which ensured that the total temperature measurement would meet specifications. This is highly precise for thermocouple measurements and required careful design and testing.Read more Walt Maclay Honored to Speak at BIOMEDevices’ Innovation Briefs December 9, 2009 Walt Maclay will present on Data Acquisition for Medical Devices scheduled from 12:40 pm – 1:20 pm on Wednesday, December 9, 2009.
