The number of different uses of steel tubing in the medical sector may strike you as surprising. There is a myriad of applications for the material. Without them, there would be big differences in the field.
What you might not know about medical uses of tubing
The most obvious uses of the tubes in the sector are in patient assistance devices. This can include everything from wheelchairs and IV stands to hospital beds and safety railings themselves. People use this tubing because it is strong, durable, and lightweight. It also has good heat and corrosion resistance. As a result of this, the products will last in the tricky environments people use them in.
The medical sector also relies on tubes to make all manner of surgical tools. Items like stethoscopes use very specialised tube so that they create effective sound transmission. Furthermore, needles use immensely fine tubes but need to be incredibly sturdy to reduce the risk of breakage. In both cases, durability and quality are vital. This comes from the materials used and the precision of the manufacturing.
A third use of the tubes is in various types of orthopaedic implants. With tubing, they can be shaped more like bones. This means there are no sharp edges to worry about that could cause injury. The shape is also better in terms of comfort.
