At the Heart of Medical Electronics
Updated: Nov 28, 2019
At Datalink Electronics, we offer the full life-cycle product development, from capturing user requirements and initial concept design to prototyping and manufacturing of a product fully certified and ready for market.
With our proven expertise we design electronics for medical products to meet the requirements of the medical devices directive, various medical standards and the ISO13485 quality management system.
We pride ourselves in providing a unique customer support experience, by offering a flexible and comprehensive design service, whether fully in charge of the project or as part of a consortium for a multi-disciplinary system development.
We work closely with leading universities and technology companies in order to turn state-of-the-art research and development into products fit for market.
Our capabilities are demonstrated through the design of highly sophisticated medical devices such as our Xenon delivery system for anaesthetising new-born babies and continuous glucose monitoring equipment.
Xenon delivery system
Every year, around the world, thousands of babies born at full-term die, or suffer from brain injury, due to a lack of Oxygen or blood supply at birth. Recent studies show that Xenon may have a neuro-protective effect and help the recovery of extremely sick new-borns,
Datalink Electronics has developed the control and monitoring unit at the heart of the breathing system developed by Inspiration Healthcare for Xenon treatment during the clinical trials.
The very high cost of Xenon gas poses a significant engineering challenge on the application of this method; a challenge, which has been addressed by this design.
The system benefits from an efficient, robust and reliable controller, accurately delivering Oxygen and Xenon through a patented breathing circuit to the baby, while maintaining their concentrations at the required levels.
Continuous Glucose Monitoring
Glucose monitoring helps people with diabetes manage the disease and avoid its associated problems. Continuous glucose monitoring provides a means of monitoring the blood glucose trends in individuals, helping them to better manage their condition and improve the quality of life in the medium and long term.
Datalink Electronics developed the electronic control and measurement unit for the original version of the Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) patch, a patented product that has been developed by Nemaura Pharma, for non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring.
The electronic module was designed to safely control the passage of a small electric current underneath the skin in order to initiate glucose extraction, and also the requisite sensitive electronic circuitry to measure nano-Ampere current signals, which were then transmitted wireless to a handheld reader.
