Electronic and software systems, put at the service of the health, bring a real progress in the care of the patients. They facilitate the early diagnosis of infections (MRI scan, scanner …) or make some interventions less heavy (surgical robots …). They are also used in the context of disease prevention or follow-up; eventually, they can probably even replace vital organs (eg artificial heart).
MEDICAL ELECTRONIC AND SOFTWARE SYSTEMS CRITICALITY
The electronic and software systems used in the medical field are not all critical, as they do not systematically bring into play the lives of patients.
However, we must be able to guarantee their reliability and their safety in a broad sense.
For example, poorly calibrated devices can irreversibly damage the patient cells. We must also be able to effectively protect equipment against potential cyber attacks etc.
The potential risks that must be taken into account are numerous.
DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTRONIC AND SOFTWARE SYSTEMS IN THE MEDICAL FIELD
ELSYS America has repeatedly demonstrated its expertise in the field of design and development of electronic and software systems for the medical field.
We can take care of complete projects including electronic, firmware, software and mechanical components; or perform expertise or consulting assignments in technical assistance mode.
We carry out our ISO 9001v2015 development cycles in strict compliance with the medical standards that apply to our customers’ products, for example software-based EN 62304.
Finally, with our other sister company AViSTO, we have complementary skills in software, for example in the field of machine learning (massive data mining) and cyber-security.
