Ingiant Waterproof slip ring used in medical technology

Where are slip rings used in medical technology?

  • Slip rings and rotary joints can be found everywhere in modern hospitals – from the large slip ring of the computer tomograph, to encapsulated miniature slip rings in the rollers of a hospital bed or a video endoscope. After all, it’s not just data and signals that are in motion, but also hospital staff and the medical equipment itself.
  • The swiveling of lights and surgical tools, the rollers on mobile examination equipment and beds, or doctors and nurses themselves who want to quickly check a patient’s data or the availability of a device while on the move are what make efficient and flexible workflows in hospitals possible in the first place. And whenever something is in motion, slip rings and rotary unions are not far away.
