bone growth stimulation system and ESD | 24 October, 2006

we have an operator who is being prescribed to wear a bone growth stimulation system. Does anyone know if tis is ESD safe? Can he wear that on the production floor as long as he's grounded and have it stored inside his smock?

It must be at least a little more ESD safe than a polyester sweater. And I'm sure at least at sometime someone has worn some clothing made of plastic fibers at your place. basically find the worst thing you allow, (probably polyester sweaters) and determine if the device is safer than that.

BTW What on earth is a bone growth stimulation system? Not what does it do, but how does it work?

the guy has a borken collarbone, and this "promotes healing by inducing a weak electrical current at the fracture site." The distributor says it's ok. I kind of wonder if it really is.

Without getting into an electrical field promoting bone growth...

As long as he is grounded through heal straps and/or wrist straps, it should be fine. Although I imagine being grounded would neutralize the "Bone Grower"

Use a field meter to quantify the effect of having this bone growth stimulation equipment near ESD sensitive devices.
