Discussion on Medical Automation Technology

Talking about medical automation technology

at present, the trend of aging and affluence of the world population has made it possible for the growth of medical consumption expenditure, and has also laid the foundation for the development of the medical device industry. Despite the global economic recession, the medical device industry still maintains a good momentum of development. According to a survey of the serious impact of "white pollution" on the ecological environment in the United States, the size of the U.S. medical automation technology market in 2008 was $12billion. The market is expected to grow to US $13.1 billion in 2009 and US $23.2 billion in 2014

ISuppli pointed out that the sales of medical electronic equipment in China will increase by 18.2% in 2009, from $3.3 billion in 2008 to $3.9 billion. In the next few years, this strong momentum will be maintained, and the compound annual growth rate will reach the load weight, which will drop by 21% and rise to $8.6 billion in 2013. Experts predict that by 2010, the market capacity of medical devices in China will reach 120billion yuan, but at present, more than 90% of domestic medical devices are medium and low-grade conventional products in the highly competitive global market. Accelerating the development of the medical device industry has become an important strategic deployment for China's economic development

medical digitalization and informatization are the main direction of the development of global medical device technology, and the most important technical guarantee to achieve "non-destructive" and "accurate" medical treatment. Digital medical equipment is the basis of medical informatization. Digital medical technology is the core technology of modern medical devices. Digital medical equipment and instruments are typical CNC automation systems. The industry formed by digital and information-based medical products is a knowledge intensive industry with high concentration of new technologies. It is also the field with the highest added value (more than 40-50% on average) in the medical device industry and the most intense competition in the international and domestic markets

implementation technology of Medical Automation

embedded technology

a large number of applications of medical instruments in the field of medical instruments, such as cardiac pacemakers, radiation equipment and analytical monitoring equipment, all need the support of embedded systems. All kinds of laboratory equipment, such as electromyography, discrete photometric chemical analysis, spectrophotometer, etc., need to use high-performance, specialized DSP system to improve its accuracy and speed. After the introduction of embedded system, the functions and performance of various existing monitors will be greatly improved

with the development of information technology, digital products are unprecedentedly prosperous. Embedded software has become the key factor of digital product design innovation and software value-added, and it is an important embodiment of future market competitiveness. In the field of medical instruments, in addition to the continuous application and promotion of new sensing and detection technology, the analysis, storage and display of the collected information also put forward higher goals. This requires modern medical instruments to have stronger computing and storage capabilities and more stable and reliable performance. In addition, as a special industry, medical instruments require equipment to meet higher environmental protection requirements. How to further intellectualize, professionalize and miniaturize, while achieving low power consumption and zero pollution, will be an endless pursuit process, which provides a broader world and higher requirements for the application of embedded systems in medical instruments

according to the "Eleventh Five Year Plan", the pilot coverage of the "new rural cooperative medical care" will be gradually expanded in 2007. It will be basically implemented nationwide in 2008, and the goal of basically covering rural residents will be achieved in 2010, which will be a great benefit to China's medical instruments. At the same time, the adjustment of the product structure of medical instruments in China also provides a good development opportunity for the application of embedded systems in medical instruments, and also poses new challenges to the developers of embedded systems

wireless technology

in recent years, wireless communication technology has been widely used in the domestic and foreign medical markets, and the application of wireless medical devices has increased rapidly. The U.S. medical Wi Fi market in 2003 reached 495million dollars, including Wi Fi devices, Wi Fi networks, system integration, medical monitoring, control and optimization. By 2010, the U.S. Wi Fi market will reach $2billion, and the revenue from wireless network operations and related services will increase to $7billion. Market participants estimate that this rapidly developing market will effectively promote the development of Wi Fi medical devices, and it is expected that many Wi Fi medical products will be launched into the market


in the modern and future information society, in order to respond to various changes in nature and society, the information processing system first needs to convert various external information through sensors into signals that can be received and processed by the information processing unit (i.e. computer) in the information system

at present, biosensors are widely used in medical treatment, medicine, bioengineering, environmental protection, food, agriculture, animal husbandry and other fields closely related to life science. With the further informatization of society, biosensors will be more and more widely used. It is understood that rapid scientific and technological advances such as micro processing and miniaturization are making biosensors begin to penetrate into developing countries. The steady growth in the United States, Europe, China and India will continue to help drive the global total sales without moisture to grow at a rate of 9.5%, and will exceed US $4billion in 2009. In recent years, the direction of biosensor research and development has changed significantly, which is a response to the emerging biotechnology innovation in the fields of biocompensation chemistry, surface characterization, molecular markers and nanotechnology, and will drive the growth of applications in various environments
