Motion solution selection is integral to laboratory fluid handling machinery, robotics and pipettors

8th December 2022

Ageing populations and the increase in preventative care have been primary catalysts for continual growth within medical research. In response to an increasing workload in laboratories, motorised tools and equipment are enabling scientists to cope with demands. While automated machinery and devices are increasing the speed and efficiency that scientists can prepare, manage, and analyse samples in the lab, the reliance on motion systems for accuracy and reliability means that selection of the right motor is vital.

Intelligent prosthetics increase mobility through miniature motion control

20th July 2022

While prosthetic legs enhance mobility for amputees, standard prostheses are passive, meaning that they are unable to provide the required feedback to enhance motor skills including balance. Now, microprocessors combined with miniature motion control technology are enabling dynamic prosthetic control, helping to emulate the human reflex loop and improve the wearer’s gait cycle.
