Sensor & Medical Products

Six basic technologies derived from
the technology developed over the years in electric wire and cable.
TATSUTA brings new value to the medical field
through the combination of these different technologies.

As we face the super-aging of our society, the medical field is taking on a host of issues that include strict cost conditions due to medical cost reductions and the improvement of efficiency in caregiving work. Through a combination of basic technologies in thinner film material, compounding, wire drawing, alloying, fiber optics, and liquid detection, which have been developed over the years at TATSUTA in electric wire and cable, TATSUTA is able to bring products that seem so obvious, yet were never before developed to customers in the medical field.

Combination of Six Basic Technologies Creation of New Value

As an OEM supplier, we are able to provide high quality mass produced products

TATSUTA Electric Wire and
Cable has entered the medical field.
To meet actual requests, TATSUTA has built an integrated approach, from the development of raw material to the manufacture of our products, receiving high acclaim for the many different products created through this approach.
We hope that you will not hesitate to name
TATSUTA Electric Wire and Cable as one of your partners. With our excellent technical capabilities,
we are confident that we can meet your expectations.


An integrated approach from the development of
our own raw materials to commercialization of the product

TATSUTA has entered a wide range of fields based on our core electric wire and cable technology, with a fully integrated approach from not just the development of raw materials and products, but also up to the marketing and delivery of a product.

Planning / Development / Productization
TATSUTA Technical Center

As a facility carrying TATSUTA Electric Wire and Cable into the next generation, the TATSUTA Technical Center features the latest in research and development facilities. The Center develops new materials as well as the groundbreaking new products that use these materials.

Liquid leakage sensor
Improving peace of mind and
safety during dialysis treatment

A major problem during dialysis treatment is blood leakage occurring when the needle slips out. If an adhesive plaster implanted with a sensor is attached to top of the intravenous (IV) needle, a blood leak can be detected immediately.

Three original TATSUTA technologies residing in a single medical product
  • Conductive film technology

    TATSUTA was the first in the world to succeed in making film from conductive paste and this product is now used in smart phones. This same TATSUTA technology is also being used to play an important role in the development of medical sensors.

  • Conductive paste technology

    Plastic or adhesives that conduct electricity are known as conductive paste. This paste and printing technology developed over the years has been applied to liquid leakage and temperature sensors. Printing is also possible on raw materials such as film and nonwoven fabric.

  • Sensor technology

    In addition to sensing and detection, there is also new focus on the additional process of alarm activation. The ability to provide original TATSUTA solutions for all three of these processes is one of our strengths and includes such applications as dialysis room water leakage sensors.

IV Counter
Applying sensor technology to automatically and accurately count IV drops per minute

With a simple set of the IV tube, the drops administered per minute are automatically counted and displayed. Adjustment of the drip count can be easily carried out and the backlight allows easy checking at night. Because it is rechargeable, changing the batteries is not necessary.

Liquid control system for artificial dialysis equipment
Liquid leakage during artificial dialysis immediately detected and alarm activated

Artificial dialysis equipment carries with it the threat of a major accident in the form of liquid leakage. Taking advantage of our many years of experience in water leakage detection systems, TATSUTA’s system ensures detection of even minute amounts of leakage and activates an alarm.

Optical fiber interference tomography meter for OCT applications
New diagnostic technology

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a technology that brought about great strides in ophthalmological diagnostics. Now it is also being studied for applications in such areas as cardiology and dermatology. This compact, yet highly precise device helps provide highly precise tomographic imaging.
