X-Ray, MRI Systems, CT Scanners, and Ultrasound equipment are high power, complex systems that generate immense heat. Subsystems like RF Amplifiers and Compressors must be cooled for consistent system operation and reliability. Leverage Boyd’s decades of innovation in imaging cooling to increase thermal density and efficiency, helping improve imaging system speed and accuracy while reducing energy consumption and total cost of operation. Innovative active and passive cooling technologies are right sized for the application’s thermal density challenges and serviceability. Lightweight, low profile, rugged liquid cooling systems, cold plates, heat exchangers, and high efficiency encapsulated spreaders enable smaller, quieter, lighter imaging thermal systems for better performance in a compact format capable of withstanding exceptional gravitation force. This means that imaging system designers have additional design space within the application to include new components or features, and thermal systems can reliably withstand imaging subsystem rotational forces. Boyd’s cooling solutions can also actively target to increase performance while eliminating required use of fans to improve reliability, reduce serviceability requirements, and lower system noise for greater patient comfort.
Intuitive Medical Displays that enable technicians to operate these devices impact service accuracy and speed. Leverage Boyd’s decade of smartphone display experience and continued human machine interface (HMI) research and development to anticipate evolving display technology that creates marketable differentiation. Display innovation featuring smart touch integrated front panels and crisp clarity in large, thin, lightweight, rich display graphics from screens optimized to environments with varying light levels and sources exposed to repeat sanitation processes, improve imaging tech experience and accuracy without adding significant power consumption.
Protection solutions are sterile products that help reduce infection and are critical to ensure the health and safety of both patients and healthcare professionals including Vaccine Storage, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Surgical Drapes & Covers, Sanitary Sleeves, Anti-Microbial, and Advanced Wound Care. Mitigate the transmission of communicable infections, diseases, viruses, and bacteria with protective products designed for medical provider and patient comfort and safety, optimized to balance weight, size, longevity of wear, application or use efficiency, and cost. All protection solutions feature medical grade materials that are skin contact tested, and processed in controlled environments. Innovative integrated systems streamline design, prototyping, manufacturing, assembly, sterilization, kitting, and regulatory approval support to remove customer complexity and improve efficiency.
Medical Biosensors like Glucose, Insulin Pumps, and Cardiac Monitors, or Medical Patches like those used for Sleep Monitoring, improve patient outcomes, and the convenience, efficiency, cost, and customization of healthcare. Monitoring patients remotely beyond the clinical environment and continually collecting individual health statistics enables providers to fully personalize wellness and treatment plans to individual diagnosis. Medical wearables must be comfortable and safe for patient wear, digitally connected, powered, easy to use, and affordable with highly reliable sensors that monitor prescribed activities, vitals, and health events.
Leverage Boyd’s expertise in fabricating and assembling medical wearables using streamlined manufacturing know-how and strategic material partnerships to efficiently support you from product inception to launch with design and material selection support. Each individual component is selected to optimize performance and cost; Cover layers can enhance breathability or waterproofing to protect internal electrical components; Cushioning layers protect electrical connections inside the device; Batteries, custom-printed flexible PCBs, biosensors, and sensing electronics integrate into flexible solutions for advanced functionality, connectivity and power; Skin contact hydrogels improve reliable signal conductivity; and strategically selected skin contact materials improve wear time, ease of removal, proximity to wound site, comfort, and flexibility.
Patches are assembled in a streamlined deliverable that aids in the application process. Results are FDA compliant wearable devices designed for patient comfort and safety, healthcare provider efficiency, exacting reliability, and total cost management.
In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Equipment, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Microfluidics, and the Diagnostic and Laboratory Disposables that accompany these devices increase the speed and convenience with which medical providers can diagnose patients and begin treatment. Whether diagnostics are completed in a lab environment or real time using lab-on-a-chip technology, IVD innovation is enabling faster, more accessible, and affordable diagnosis and treatment decisions. Enhance and assure testing accuracy by precisely controlling operating temperature during IVD laboratory equipment operation and managing sample stability with high reliability, high performance cold plates and liquid cooling systems or with precision medical laminates that enable highly accurate fluid flow protected from contaminants through Microfluidic and PCR tests. Microfluidic diagnostics and PCR testing streamline sample collection, storage and preservation in a compact, miniaturized format, reducing handling by lab technicians and the time and cost to manage hundreds of tests. Contaminant-free sample collection and handling as well as most highly efficient utilization of minimal sample volume are critical to mobile IVD accuracy, reliability, efficiency and patient and healthcare provider ease of use.
