What affects the medical market, what new developments are happening?
01/03/2017Researchers have often "looked over nature’s shoulder", sometimes with amazing results. Now the lacewing was given this honor. The way they put their eggs on bend-resistant stems, researchers want to use for new films, globules or capsules. COMPAMED has asked how far the process has progressed.
03/01/2017Gentle surgical techniques support a faster patient recovery process. This also includes high-frequency surgery, where electric current passes through the body via the scalpel. This makes tiny, precise surgical cuts (incisions) possible and promotes vascular closure in the wound area. However, this technique is not without risk for the patient.
02/11/2016Implants require sufficient and permanent energy to function as desired. However, unlike a mobile phone or a camera, the size of the battery plays an important role in implants. Researchers are therefore looking for ways to deliver energy from outside.
