Interlink Electronics and Introtek Introduce Medical Technology for Improving Patient Safety
Interlink Electronics' FSR® 402 implemented in Introtek's PRO Occlusion Detector
CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Interlink Electronics, Inc. (OTC: LINK) announced today the integration of their FSR® 402 sensor in Introtek's PRO Occlusion Detector, a passive non-invasive, free-entry sensor designed for medical, laboratory, pharmaceutical and packaging applications.
Interlink Electronics' FSR ® 402 is now built into Introtek's PRO Occlusion Detector, a non-invasive, free-entry sensor designed to detect occlusion in soft tubing and produce corresponding output signal for medical devices, clinical laboratories, pharmaceutical manufacturing and automated packaging applications. The PRO Detector was the result of a steadily growing interest in the global community of medical device manufacturers and offers a unique solution to accurately monitor tubing occlusion.
"As a leader in the development of life saving, non-invasive fluid detection devices we were excited to discover Interlinks FSR® 402 sensor," said Deb Corwin, Introtek's General Manager. "It was a perfect match for our Pro-Occlusion Detector product. It provided us with a cost effective sensing solution which had the ideal form factor along with the durability characteristics which our customers have come to expect from Introtek products. It allowed us to achieve our design goals of a reliable, free-entry, maintenance free device. We look forward to a long partnership with Interlink for these sensing needs."
FSR® 402 is part of Interlink Electronics FSR® 400 series, the most versatile force sensor technology on the market. FSRs® are robust polymer thick film (PTF) two-wire devices that exhibit a decrease in resistance with increase in the force applied to the surface of the sensor. This force is optimized for use in human touch control of electronic devices in diverse applications such as medical systems, electronics, automotive, industrial control and robotics. FSR® 400 sensors are cost effective, ultra thin, robust, simple & easy to integrate into a wide range of user interface and data capture solutions.
"We are delighted to be designed-in to Introtek's occlusion sensing product," said Steven N. Bronson, Interlink's Chief Executive Officer. "We have a long history of working with technology innovators like Introtek to provide innovative sensing solutions for the medical device market."
