Optimal medical treatment requires extremely high-quality medical engineering. As the global technology and market leader, HBM offers reliable and precise measurement technology, which can be also found in a whole range of medical devices; for instance, scales, pumps, lifters, CPR devices, and hand and finger dynamometers.

As medical-technical progress opens up new paths regarding diagnostics, treatments and therapies, the rate of innovation is constantly increasing. Safe, reliable, efficient, comfortable, functional – the requirements posed on developers of medical engineering devices are also constantly increasing.

From sensors to amplifiers to software – you can find the right solution for your application at HBM. In addition to high-quality standard products, HBM also develops innovative individual custom solutions together with you.

Load cells and custom sensors for patient weighing

In order to make patient weighing safer and more comfortable for both the patient and the carers, HBM load cells and custom sensors can be integrated in various lifter types. The increasing numbers of bariatric or adipose patients also require special devices. HBM can also offer medical engineering solutions in this case, e.g. the easily integrated suspended scale with a particularly high nominal load.

HBM's PW27 aseptic load cell for the highest demands on hygienic production.
HBM designs and manufactures a broad range of custom sensors and custom strain gauges for the medical industry.
Each sensor and instrument manufactured at HBM's factories in Germany, China and the US undergoes stringent quality controls.
A series of multi-axis custom strain gauge sensor subassemblies can help OEMs develop high-precision robotic surgical devices with greater accuracy and performance capabilities.
A typical CT scan machine can achieve a smoother, more consistent movement and table positioning through the use of a multi-axis strain gauge subassembly.

Load cells for blood bag scales

Blood bag scales monitor and stop the blood donation process according to the volume specifications required by the blood bank. Single-point load cells from HBM are often used here.

Hygienic load cells for dosed filling of pharmaceuticals

The aseptic production of pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs or other products places the highest of requirements on safety and hygiene. The PW27 hygienic load cell meets these requirements.

Load cells for infusion pumps

Infusion pumps are used for the intravenous administration of infusions. Special strain gauge-based load cells are used here to monitor the pressure on the syringe plunger.

Volume measurement of blood components

The volumes of individual blood components such as red and white blood cells or plasma are measured during blood separation by means of single point load cells.

Custom solutions for original equipment manufacturers

In today’s highly competitive medical device marketplace, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their associated design and engineering personnel are opting to include custom strain gauge sensing technologies into finished product designs, as a means of achieving greater business advantage. The capability, accuracy and extended service life of such technology has been field-proven within these applications.

With more than 60 years of experience in the successful design, development and manufacture of custom strain gauge sensing technologies for medical devices and equipment, HBM has been an industry pioneer in this market, leveraging the capabilities of multiple global in-house manufacturing operations and the benefits of its own unique expertise, gained from hundreds of successful applications.
