Case Study: Low-Noise Gearing for Patient Care Robot

Date: April 10, 2024

In the world of medicine, some of the most important tools never come in physical contact with the patient, yet they may offer great comfort by providing care during a difficult period.

This Berg client set out to develop a robot that could be guided by a physician to the patient’s bedside and provide personal, post-procedure follow-up, no matter where the doctor may physically be.

Challenge: Unwanted Gear Noise

This client came to Berg for help in designing an efficient and quiet drive system for their bedside robot.

Solution: Innovative Gear Materials

Berg developed gears from materials that provided the required strength while delivering on a key measure of product performance and quality: whisper-quiet performance.
