Discover our Biomedical capabilities


HITEC is a custom sensor design and outsourced manufacturing supplier with manufacturing facilities in Boston, MA and Kadawatha, Sri Lanka and a sales office in the UK.

HITEC’s USP is its deep and trusted technical knowledge of designing custom sensor solutions in critical applications that cannot, and do not fail. Through engineering partnerships, HITEC enables sensors to be built-in, and then production scaled.

HITEC is continually developing process automation, using OpTek machines and capabilities, we will extend and replicate this for our customers.

Currently is certified for Aerospace and is pursuing medical device certification for ISO 13485.

Core Biomedical Capabilities

Liquid flow monitoring

Occlusion and infusion pump sensors are used to measure liquid flow, drug treatment, blood pressure.

Haptic feedback sensors

Six axis sensors are used to give surgeons precise feedback while performing remote surgery.

Rehabilitation & Orthopedics

Machines and embedded devices are used to measure force and exertion. This data helps doctors manage patient recovery and rehabilitation in real-time.

Custom Force Sensors

Many surgical tools like disposable staplers, and drills used in bone surgery, need sensors to monitor forces acting upon the tool.


OPTEK provides outsourced manufacturing services for fiber processing, lensing and micromachining sub-components across a range of niche applications, with a core manufacturing base in Oxford, UK; and additional facilities in Greenville, SC; Boston, MA; and DongGuan, China.

OpTek also creates customized laser machines used by customers at their own facilities to perform tasks like black-marking. Previous customers that have bought machines have expressed an interest to change to an outsourced manufacturing model.

OpTek’s USP is designing automation machines to manage laser wavelengths that can process any material at accuracy of between 1-300microns, at repeatable scale.

Discover our work in action

The implementation of force sensors in infusion pumps helps regulate fluid delivery and dosage to a patient and can also detect possible occlusions and blockages via pressure changes.

Advanced spinal screws that incorporate HITEC’s torque and strain sensors can ensure the correct size and position of the screws and rods; and help to reduce the risk of post-surgery complications.

Strain gauge technology doesn’t come in a one size fits all scenario. The solutions are as diverse and individual as are the applications for which they are specified and developed.

The function of many drug-delivery, therapeutic, and medical device systems often relies on a change in force. Learn about how this change can be initiated by either the patient or can be automatically changed by the device itself.

In this on-demand webinar, we will explore how specialty optical fibers can be applied to a number of applications within the Biomedical field, such as Haptic Feedback, Chemical Sensing, Endoscopy and many more.

We are improving healthcare diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes through innovative design, precise manufacturing, and scalable production.
