Medical Motion Solutions

Allied Motion manufacturers precision medical motors, drives and position feedback products for a wide range of medical applications from surgical robotics to prosthetics to consumer CPAP machines.

For medical handling and mobility applications Allied Motion provides brush and brushless traction wheel drives, gear motors, drives and actuator components.


Surgical Robots

Robot surgery, computer-assisted surgery, and robotically-assisted surgery are some of the terms used to refer to today’s advanced robotic surgical tools that allow surgeons to perform many types of complex procedures with higher precision, flexibility, control and less invasively than is possible with conventional surgical techniques.


All Terrain Tracked Wheelchair

The Trackchair™ is a unique zero-turn-radius, all-terrain wheelchair developed to enable wheelchair-bound people, including veterans, to enjoy the freedom of getting off-road.

Anesthesia Workstation Breathing System Pump

Anesthesia workstations require highly reliable ventilator system components, the most important of which is the bellows subsystem.

Angiographic CT Contrast Injector Syringe Pump

Angiographic contrast injectors are essential accessories for modern CT scanners. They inject X-ray contrast fluid intravenously, which provides dramatic improvement in the overall quality of CT images of the circulatory system and many soft organs.


Bionic Prosthetic Arm

As part of a DARPA program, an Allied Motion customer developed a new anthropomorphic prosthetic limb that gives patients improved, dexterous control of a prosthetic arm and hand, including a sense of touch.

Bionic Prosthetic Knee

Allied Motion’s work with bionic limb manufacturers – contributing our expertise in small, efficient motors – helps them develop advanced powered prosthetics.

Cardiovention CPB System

Cardiopulmonary Heart Bypass System Pump

Allied Motion designed a magnetically-coupled brushless pump motor to drive a disposable integrated oxygenator module, the “heart” of this innovative heart bypass system.


Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) Finger Exerciser

Joint tendon rehabilitation is expedited using motorized robotic devices that continuously exercise the affected digits.

Respironics PAP 300 3w

CPAP Respiratory Ventilation Air Pump

Sleep apnea treatment often involves the assistance of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) respirators.


CT Scanner Cooling System Pump

CT scanners have become virtually indispensable as a medical analysis tool. Modern CT scanners, especially newer multi-slice models, allow much faster, higher resolution scanning.


Dental Instrument Pump

From dental treatment centers to denture fabrication labs, small reliable and efficient pumps to supply gases and liquids are a necessity.

Dialyses+Patient 3

Dialysis System Pump

Hemodialysis (HD) therapy systems require reliable peristaltic pumps to accurately control the flow of patient’s blood and the dialysis solution through the machine’s dialyzer.


Diaphragm Pump

Compact, rugged, and mechanically simple diaphragm pumps can handle either fluids or gases with equal efficiency and reliability.


Intensive Care Respiratory Ventilation Air Pump

Ventilators provide temporary respiratory support to medical patients, often in critical care situations. Reliability and low audible noise are very important criteria to ventilator manufacturers.


Left Ventricular Heart Assist Device (LVAD)

Left ventricular heart assist devices (LVAD) were developed to help heart transplant candidates while they await the availability of a heart, and also for permanent support for end stage heart failure patients.


Nuclear Imaging System

Some nuclear imaging systems use Anger cameras (photoscintillation imagers) to image radiopharmaceuticals in a patient. In positron emission computer tomography (ECT) or single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) the cameras are revolved around the patient.

Patient Handling Equipment

Patient comfort is enhanced, especially for children and the elderly, when they are better accommodated by powered patient handling equipment such as the exam table shown here, where patients can sit as in a chair and then are gently oriented for examination.


Patient Transport Equipment

Developers of a new-concept patient transfer bed – a motorized gurney with a built-in transfer belt that enables a single caregiver to transfer a patient within a medical facility without having to physically lift the patient – sought Allied Motion’s assistance to motorize the 1400 lb. bed.

Automated Pipetting

Pipetting System for Automated Blood Analyzer

Blood analysis requires a sequence of steps that if done manually are very time-consuming. An automated pipetting subsystem can speed the analysis.

Power Wheelchair Drive

Medical mobility equipment such as power wheelchairs, scooters, stair lifts, and elevators require dependable, quiet DC or brushless DC motors and gear motors for reliable, long life operation.

Savaria Curved_1

Powered Stair Lift

All powered medical access and mobility equipment like the stair lift shown here is expected to operate quietly and reliably over many years of numerous daily cycles.
