Healthcare is undergoing a great transformation, largely driven by the innovation of medical devices. These devices play an increasingly pivotal role in diagnosing, treating, and improving the lives of patients worldwide. Reliability is paramount, and many devices depend on the use of precision ball bearings to operate effectively under demanding conditions. Surgical power tools, dental drills, pumps, and ventilators are just a few of the medical applications that require the use of miniature and instrument ball bearings. Bearings are also critical components in a wide variety of diagnostic and imaging equipment. 

Material, lubrication, precision level, low noise levels, and protection from contamination are key attributes that designers must properly determine to ensure the optimal performance of bearings used in medical devices. 

In a recent article for Medical Design Briefs, AST Bearings explores several of these critical bearing design elements.
