Medical
In the Medical Industry, with the aid of small accurately machined parts and tools, modern surgery has become less intrusive and more successful. For example, a torn meniscus of the knee can be repaired in an afternoon, and the patient may be walking without pain the next day. This kind of operation relies on the development of innovative techniques and confidence in the medical equipment. This confidence can only be assured through accurate measurement. Pratt & Whitney instruments and gages are used by customers like Howmedica, Abbott Labs, Saint Jude Medical, Covidien, Medtronic Corporation, Boston Scientific, Hospira, GE Medical, Siemens Health, and Stryker Corporation.
