Motor drivers often integrate control circuitry such as current regulation or digital state machines to operate the motor, in addition to providing a high-voltage and high-current drive. These motion solutions provide a level of robustness plus compact size that can be ideal for medical device design.
Pneumatics technology has been used in medical devices for many years, but now there are significant technology advances that are producing finer proportional control than in the past. Pneumatic systems are also working on portability issues, and solutions for low power designs.
