green power: The technology is scaleable for
different voltages and power levels, and can be
combined with dimmers in lighting applications.
Green power from Lundinova
The Data Respons company Lundinova has developed technology for a lossless
electricity supply that reduces standby consumption by 99 per cent.
A growing number of appliances, for example lighting applications, computer accessories, mobile-phone chargers, etc., use some
sort of power adapter to convert the mains
voltage to the required voltage. It is above
all in standby mode that appliances consume
unnecessary power. Power adapters heat up
simply by being plugged in.
Low additional costs
Lundinova’s technology reduces standby
consumption by around 99 per cent. The
extra cost of manufacturing an item such as
a mobile-phone charger using this technology is only around USD 1. The technology
is scaleable for different voltages and power
levels, and can be combined with dimmers in
lighting applications.
Example of energy savings
Assuming that a charger is left on standby for
around 20 hours a day, using one of our chargers would save 5.9 Wh per day, which is 2.1535
kWh per year. Based on an estimate of 10 million
chargers in Sweden, that equates to a saving of
20 GWh per year for the country as a whole.
Main features
„„ AC/DC power adapter with extremely low
standby power consumption: 99% less
than typical
„„ Smart solution to automatically detect if
load is present or not. No manual on/off
switch needed
„„ Unaffected efficiency in active mode
„„ Cost of added components about USD 1

Laser measures state of health
The Data Respons company Lundinova
has helped develop a device which calculates the amount of abdominal fat.
The solution has been developed in conjunction with inventor Dr Carl-Erik Flodmark, a
consultant at University Hospital, Malmö, in
Sweden, and the development company Innovator Skåne AS.
Abdominal height (sagittal diameter or
SAD) provides a better indication of the amount
of dangerous abdominal fat, and supplements
the more common waist measurement using a
tape measure to calculate the level of obesity.
The device measures the height of the abdomen compared with the height of the sternum to calculate the risk of abdominal obesity
by means of an “F-index”. Measurement can
be performed without touching the patient,
which according to Dr Flodmark is important
when examining children and adolescents.
4
“There has never been a good method for
measuring abdominal height; we have had
to rely on a spirit level and tape measure. I
thought there had to be a better way,” said Dr
Flodmark to the Swedish medical newspaper
Dagens Medicin.
F-index
The invention is called the “abdominal height
laser”, and a prototype has been tested at
University Hospital, Malmö. Dr Flodmark and
his team at the hospital have defined the Findex, which is built on the hypothesis that
the height of the abdomen should not exceed
the height of the sternum. The laser measures
the height of both the abdomen and sternum, and the ratio between them defines the
F-index. If the ratio is greater than 1, ie the
height of the abdomen exceeds the height
of the sternum, the patient may be suffering from dangerous abdominal obesity. The
F-index could prove to
be a better method for
calculating the degree
of obesity than BMI, for
example, which does
not take into account
such factors as whether the
person is heavily built or is
experiencing a growth spurt.
“Lundinova has developed hardware, software and
the mechanics for this project.
The system’s main components
are a data collection device, a
USB camera, a line laser, level indicator, manoeuvring buttons and
indicator lamps,” says Lundinova’s
Anders Alvin.

Medical Device Directive
FOcUS
classification: All medico-technical products in Europe must meet
the requirements stipulated in the Medical Device Directive.
Medical Device Directive
Data Respons has helped guide a large number of medicotechnical companies safely through both CE labelling in Europe and FDA registration in the USA.
Data Respons has many years’ well-documented experience of developing and manufacturing medico-technical devices.
What is the difference between CE labelling and FDA registration?
“In principle there is not much difference. This is where classification comes
in, which is almost identical in Europe and the USA. The FDA uses the
term ‘Good Manufacturing Practices 21CFR Part 820’, while in Europe we
use ‘Medical Device Directive 93/42 EEC with amendment 2007/47/EC’,”
explains QA Manager Thomas Dam from Data Respons in Denmark.
When a product is to be imported into the USA the manufacturer
sends a Premarket Notification 510 (K), a document containing several
hundred pages which largely corresponds to the requirements for CE
labelling. The difference is that the manufacturer has to gather together
the documentation and send it to the FDA. There follows a lengthy
dialogue back and forth until the manufacturer receives a K-number.
“It is enormously time consuming from a purely administrative point
of view. In Europe, companies whose
quality-assurance system is ISO 13485
certified are themselves permitted to put
a CE label on their products,” concludes
Thomas Dam.

INTERRUPT #3 2010
Classification in Europe
Classification determines which requirements and regulations
must be fulfilled before a product can be awarded a CE label.
Class 1: Products such as walking frames, wheelchairs, stethoscopes, which do not require a notified body. As a rule, manufacturers themselves are entitled to draw up and sign a conformance
declaration, with subsequent auditing by the government’s controlling body (in Denmark the Danish Medicines Agency).
Class 2A and 2B: Most electro-medical products, e.g. ECG
equipment and equipment used for the diagnosis, prevention,
monitoring, treatment or relief of medical conditions.
Class 3: High-risk products, e.g. those requiring examination,
replacement or change of the anatomy or a physiological process, as well as devices associated with an element of risk, eg
implants such as pacemakers. All medico-technical products in
Europe must meet the requirements stipulated in the Medical
Device Directive 93/42 EEC with amendment 2007/47EC.
Notified Body
A notified body is a body authorised by the Danish national
control authority to audit the companies. The national control
authority audits both companies marketing Class 1 products and
notified bodies. Notified bodies audit companies marketing Class
2 and 3 products. If the manufacturer has an ISO 13485 certified
quality-assurance system it is itself entitled to put a CE label on
products of any classification. A notified body audits the company once a year, with the exception of those companies which
sell only Class 1 products. Alternatively, manufacturers which do
not have a certified quality-assurance system may obtain a CE
label if a notified body audits each individual production run and
its associated documentation. Efforts are being made to establish
ISO 13485 as a common standard in the USA and Europe.

One supplier - one bill
... and the project delivered on time
Outsourcing to Data Respons takes the edge
off your complex development projects.
With Data Respons as your development and production partner you can reduce your
overall development time and costs. Let us assist you with your embedded challenges!
one partner
You only need to deal with one partner, no matter how many subcontractors or suppliers
are participating. This means that you will have fewer relationships to manage and can save
both time and money by getting a dedicated team with insight into your technological
demands and development needs. You will get one supplier and one bill, and your R&D
engineers can focus on your core activities: innovation and applications.
SUPPORT and LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT
Data Respons offers drop-ship stores, a dedicated support team and guaranteed response times.
We have stringent quality-control procedures to handle faults and can offer online RMA handling,
including consequence analysis and corrective measures. You don’t need to concern yourself with
end-of-life issues, because we will warn you when any changes will have to be made. Please
contact Data Respons to discuss the outsourcing of your development projects.
