Depend on PMD safety and stability

From surgical tools and heart assist pumps to imaging systems and beyond, motion applications in healthcare demand ultra-high levels of safety, stability, reliability, and long-term availability of electronic components.

At the delicate juncture of human health and technology, Performance Motion Devices helps OEMs meet stringent industry requirements and attain long-term product success.

Wondering how to control motion for a healthcare system you want to create? Contact us.

PMD technology is a core component of FDA-approved equipment manufactured by leading healthcare industry OEMs.


We use digital checksum functionality in the motion control between our ICs and amplifiers. Our inherently safe interfaces prevent devices from careening out of control in response to invalid or random inputs – a danger that traditional analog amplifier-equipped systems cannot guard against.

"Relying on PMD hardware and motion expertise … we designed a lower-cost, more powerful motion controller for our holmium laser-based system used in vision correction."
