Quick and in brief: We talk to experts from the industry about trends and topics in medical technology - in 3 questions only.
30/10/2015The trend towards miniaturization is progressing in medical technology. This in turn also means that electronics must be adapted to size relations, for example of implants. Smaller structures and components are in demand as never before. Thus, the demands on the technology and production simultaneously grow.
21/10/2015Medical devices are not made overnight. Even before they reach clinical studies, their development takes years. During this time an initial idea is developed to a blueprint and then to a prototype. Manufacturers are often not able to accomplish this on their own, especially not the smaller ones. Luckily, there are consultancies that have specialized in this field.
