Portable Patient Monitor & Defibrillator Control Panel Assembly
As an ISO 13485 certified company, our customers in the medical industry rely on Eastprint's technical proficiency to build complex interface assemblies for critical patient care devices. We engineered and built a control panel assembly for a portable patient monitor and defibrillator. Our comprehensive engineering and manufacturing capabilities, combined with value added assembly and testing, allowed us to supply them with an end-to-end solution for this high-tech user interface.
Built to IP55 protection standards, the control panel measured 8.750" square. Highlights of the construction include a custom multiple-shot insert molded keypad, high-reliability Kapton circuitry, and integrated LED backlighting. Other features include tactile metal dome switches, LCD display, and an integrated speaker assembly. We designed and assembled custom wire harnesses to provide fail-safe interconnections between internal electronic components, and leveraged advanced robotics assembly for precise placement of the display and the lenses. Our additional activities included designing custom packaging solution for protecting the unit during shipment and storage.
We worked in close collaboration with the client's international design team over a lengthy development cycle to engineer this product. Several of the major components were put through an exhaustive process of IQ/OQ/PQ verification and validation to ensure production complied with strict medical device regulatory requirements. Process verification included gauge R&R studies and PPAP Level III submission. We engineered this device in full compliance with RoHS and REACH directives to satisfy the requirements of a global marketplace.
With our engineering, quality management, and manufacturing expertise, we have formed a long-term partnership with this client. We provide user interface solutions for their leading brand of patient care devices that are in use around the globe by hospitals, EMS technicians, and military aeromedical personnel.
