Over decades, SDT has gained wide-ranging experience in Medical/Rehabilitation working with clients providing services with design, development & also the supply of electric drives, carrying through many projects in close cooperation with electric motor manufacturers & Medical/Rehabilitation companies.

Projects related to the Medical/Rehabilitation industry have been performed for motor drive manufacturers SDT has undertaken work for clients in a diverse range of sectors, including:

  • Power wheelchairs & Scooters
  • Stairlifts
  • Hoists
  • Bed  lifts
  • Hospital bed adjustment
  • Treatment equipment
  • Dental Equipment

Considered medical devices, such as power wheelchair & scooters, stairlifts require the most reliable components - the most critical of which are the drive system and controller. Furthermore, these components must be designed to fit into the most compact envelope possible, and must be able to handle extremely wide variations in load, speed, temperature and environmental conditions. SDT has met these challenges with the widest variety of drive technology & provided optimum motor drive solutions.

SDT has been involved in a number of projects in the Medical/Rehabilitation industry. Our projects range from advising motor manufacturers  on the commercial impact of new technologies via technology assessments for motor drive technology, to developing for a new generation of optimised brushed & brushless dive systems to meet the new generation of Medical/Rehabilitation product requirements.

SDT has developed considerable experience with PDD/Engineering, quality operators in the Medical/Rehabilitation sectors, including 

  • Drive Product Design & Development
  • Drive Technology assessments and Comparison
  • Failure assessments and solution identification
  • Sizing motor drives at concept stage, advice on drives and recommending
  • Specialist suppliers in motor drive control systems
  • Providing  resources to specify the best motion component needs
  • Consultancy
