Increased domestic demand transforms Brazil's Health Devices Industry


The sector’s growth leads to higher quality and falling prices for Brazilian medical, dental, hospital and laboratory products and equipment

The expansion of the middle class in Brazil over the past decade has provoked an increase in the domestic demand for health devices, driving the industry to increase investment into innovation and higher quality. Over the past six years, the sector’s apparent consumption has accumulated real growth of 11.5%. Just for the past year, the real growth in apparent consumption was 4%, despite the slowdown in the country’s economy.

“We are living a period of profound transformation, because the growth in demand and changes in the profile of consumption of health devices is driving the sector to mature. We are producing more, with higher quality and lower costs”, explains ABIMO (the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association) superintendent Paulo Henrique Fraccaro.

Another factor that contributes to the development of the local health devices industry is the modernisation of hospital infrastructure seen over the past few years, which has increased the volume of medical tourism to Brazil.

The international recognition of the quality of the country’s plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine has also driven the national health devices industry. Brazil is among the top 10 countries with the highest number of plastic surgeons and certified cosmetic medicine specialists in the world. Procedures such as breast enlargement, for example, are carried out at a lower cost than in countries such as the US or UK.

Brazil also stands out as a global destination for treatment in the areas of oncology, cardiology, orthopaedics and neurology.

Excellent cost-benefit

The industry’s transformation is reflected in the image Brazilian products have abroad. Research conducted by ABIMO among key opinion leaders and clients in target markets for the sector, such as Angola, Chile, Spain, the US, India, Mexico and Turkey indicated that Brazil’s products are seen as offering excellent cost-benefit with creative and innovative solutions.

The study shows that Brazilian dental products and equipment are considered some of the finest in the world. In Russia, for example, Brazil is the market leader in sales volume of dental equipment.

Brazil’s export list to the US, Europe and the Middle East includes sophisticated products, such as neonatal incubators, which reach the market based on their quality and competitive prices. In Latin America, Brazilian paediatric heaters and light therapy equipment are of particular note.

In general, Brazilian electro-surgical equipment is considered reliable in the medical product markets it is exported to and the same holds true for its ophthalmological and refractive surgery equipment.

MEDICA 2016

The Brazilian health products industry is represented at MEDICA 2016, in Dusseldorf, by 50 companies, of which 3 are in the National pavilion, participating off their own resources. The companies are members of the Brazilian Health Devices project run by ABIMO (the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association) in partnership with Apex-Brasil (the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency).

BRAZILIAN COMPANIES PRESENT INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR A VARIETY OF AREAS AT MEDICA 2016

The product portfolio for different procedures and treatments is the result of a conscientious innovation strategy and R&D investment

ABIMO (the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association) studies have shown that innovation is considered essential by the Brazilian industry in the sector. At least 80% of companies have their own R&D departments and more than 2/3 (68%) have a strategic innovation plan.

 “In the current global trade scenario of competition and dynamism, investing in innovation is a necessity and Brazil’s health products and equipment industry already knows it, as evidenced by our research”, says Clara Porto, the ABIMO marketing and exports manager. “Recognising this reality, ABIMO created the Health Innovation Prize back in 2010, to honour the most innovative solutions offered by the Brazilian industry”, she adds.

Below is some of the innovation Brazilian stands will be showing at MEDICA, in Dusseldorf:

FOR LUNGS

Magnamed creates lung ventilator and anaesthesia solutions, exporting two of its machines – the OxyMag is a portable ventilator, while the FlexiMag Plus is an ICU ventilator – to more than 40 countries. The innovation in the OxyMag is that it has an intuitive, user friendly interface that makes it easier and faster to take action in emergencies. The company won the Innovating Health Prize in 2013.

Timpel won the Innovating Health Prize in 2015 for its Timpel Enlight 1800, a bedside lung monitor for use in hospital environments (ICU, Surgery Centre, Accident and Emergency and Walk-in Clinics). The device provides real-time imaging of lung ventilation/perfusion distribution, making it possible to identify collapses and alveolar hyperdistention, filling assynchronisms, pneumothorax, selective intubation and lung perfusion alterations, among others.

The equipment carries out ultra-fast image capture (50 per second), issues no radiation and does not require the use of contrasts. It offers the patient more safety, physicians can use it to diagnose the lung condition more quickly, it optimises ventilation (supports the decision) and allows for fast haemodynamic checks (while being non-invasive).

VENIPUNCTURE

Duan International developed the Venoscópio, a creative and inexpensive solution. This tool uses LED lights that shine onto the skin, permeating the subcutaneous tissue by up to 5 mm, and highlights veins, allowing the health professional to identify the three main parameters for a good venepuncture: real vein calibre/diameter, pathways/branching, and existing permeability/obstructions. The image of the vein is direct, not reflected, which reduces the risk of error.

Another advantage the Venoscópio offers is that it allows visualisation of whether the medication is kept to the lumen of the vein and to identify haematomas in accidents, as a perforation of veins. The Venoscópio dispenses the use of garrottes and tourniquets. Furthermore, it improves the blood collection by being faster than the traditional procedure, also reducing the risk of biochemical and haematological alterations in the sample.

REHABILITATION

Ibramed, a manufacturer of rehabilitation and aesthetic medicine equipment, developed a product especially for the Rio 2016 Olympics – the Neurodyn Aussie Sport. This product accelerates athletes’ recovery process after an injury through the use of the Corrente Aussie to for sensory and motor stimulation. It is mainly indicated for muscular strengthening, motor re-education, reducing oedemas and modulating pain, among others.

FOR THE HEART

Corcam innovated with the Nexcor, a system that brings current hospital technology to users, getting cardiac patients close to their physicians. The monitor can identify infarction in its initial phase and rare arrhythmia syndromes using software that sends real-time patient data to a centre that passes on the information to the respective physicians.

Developed over the course of five years of research, the new heart monitor can detect falls, has a GPS to locate patients who have lost consciousness and a panic button to call for help with one touch, in addition to sending alerts in the event of infarction or arrhythmia.

Scitech was the first company in South America to develop a pharmacological stent, an implantable product for the treatment of coronary diseases. The company was also a pioneer in the region, in developing a non-pharmacological coronary stent and accessories for interventionist cardiology.

BRAZILIAN COMPANIES PRESENT SOLUTIONS FOR HOSPITALS, NEONATOLOGY AND PHYSIOTHERAPY AT MEDICA 2016


Participating in MEDICA 2016, held in Dusseldorf, from November 14-17, are 47 corporate members of Brazilian Health Devices, a project run by the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association (ABIMO) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).

On Brazil’s list of products and equipment for the fair are solutions for the medical-hospital, neonatology and physiotherapy sectors.

Medical-hospital furniture

Hospimetal, a maker of medical-hospital furniture and equipment, showcases at MEDICA 2016 its adult model HM 2002 D bed, which has the quality to compete against the big names in the international market while offering more affordable prices. The bed has removable head- and footboards that are structured along the sides using polyurethane injected material.

The bed also features digital controls through a with a waterproof, membrane keypad, two digital controls along the bed rails for internal and external access, one digital control located at the foot for general positioning, including one-touch locking, CPR and Trendelemburg commands.

Medical-hospital equipment

Specialised in hospital solutions, Grupo Medical introduces the Gastropexia Kit to its portfolio. It comprises a GMI percutaneous probe, indicated for patients subjected to temporary or permanent gastrostomy, providing gastric access to food and medication when the oropharyngeal pathway is incapacitated.

Aspects such as the anatomic fit and biocompatibility of the medical grade silicone used in the probe allows for comfort, safety and an improvement in the patient’s quality of life. With a focus on the international market, the group is finalising the CE certification process and plans to expand its market share abroad.

Neonatology and physiotherapy

Companies well-established in the international market, such as Carci and Fanem, are also present in the delegation of Brazilian companies at MEDICA.

Fanem, a manufacturer of neonatal products, exports to more than 100 countries spread over all five continents. It is taking a portfolio to Dusseldorf that has already gained its share of the market, including the Duetto, the first Brazilian equipment to have hybrid functions in neonatal treatment, designed to meet the needs of neonatal health teams.

Fanem’s sales manager Braulio Sumida states, “The Duetto’s characteristics allows neonatal teams fast and easy access to the patient, reducing the amount of movement required and thus improving the treatment perspective”.

The equipment, which has a gyrating, sliding base, was designed to minimise the risk of infection and contamination, avoiding the accumulation of foreign matter and facilitating asepsis. The company is also presenting other products for intensive care, light therapy, hospital cots and paediatric resuscitators.

Carci, meanwhile, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016 and brings to the fair a broad and deep portfolio of physiotherapy solutions.

BRAZILIAN COMPANIES LAUNCH ORTHOPAEDIC AND IMAGING PRODUCTS

MEDICA 2016 counts with 47 companies from the Brazilian Health Devices project

A broad portfolio of products from different sectors will be presented by the Brazilian companies participating at MEDICA 2016, held in Dusseldorf between November 14-17. Due to this diversity, Brazil is represented by 39 companies in the main pavilion, four in Hall 3, for laboratories and another four in Hall 4, for physiotherapy and orthopaedics.

On the list of orthopaedics launches, the Neospine Cannulated Pedicle Screw from Neoortho, a company specialising in orthopaedic products that has already participated in five editions of the fair. This new product is a spinal implant and is part of the company’s portfolio of pedicle screws, providing an option for low bone quality, osteoporosis and/or congenital deformity cases.

The pedicle screws by Neoortho are seen in the market as providing solid cost-benefit. Currently, the company is growing and consolidating its position in Latin America, while simultaneously seeking to open up new markets in emerging countries and nations of East Europe.

Traumec specialises in products for craniomaxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery and orthopaedics, and at MEDICA releases the NeuroEndoview Plus – an instrument (cannula) to access lesions deep within the brain. This product is cylindrically-shaped and features a set of dilators that assist in creating the entry orifice, which is less aggressive to the brain tissues, faster and offers the surgeon a greater field of view.

This means the NeuroEndoview Plus is less traumatic compared to its competitors, which are elliptical and lack the option to dilate the brain tissue before introduction. Furthermore, it has the ability to be used with an optic guide, allowing the surgeon to observe details in the brain tissue to be operated on and improve the patient’s post-operative recovery.

Traumec’s portfolio for the fair focuses on equipment and products that offer effective solutions for craniomaxillofacial surgery and neurosurgery.

The star of the imaging portfolio Estek Tecnologia em Produtos brings to MEDICA is the Facebox. This equipment standardises facial photographs using special optics designed to prevent reflections and deformations, allowing for colour UV fluorescence photography that reveals porphyrin, etc. The Facebox also features an adapter for compatible with virtually all smartphones, enabling the use of free software.

Also launching at the fair is the company’s third generation of the Carbtek Advanced machine, and equipment for carboxitheray and its flagship product.

These companies are members of Brazilian Health Devices, a project run by the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association (ABIMO) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).

BRAZILIAN COMPANIES LAUNCH WITH CREATIVITY AT MEDICA 2016


Brazil’s portfolio features cardiology, prosthetics and radiology products and equipment

Responding to the rise in internal demand and opportunities in the international market, Brazil’s health products and equipment companies have been increasing their investments into R&D and innovation. During this process, they have added the country’s hallmark creativity for the health sector, resulting in innovative products to be found among those launched at MEDICA, held between November 14-17, in Dusseldorf.

Taking part are the 47 corporate members of Brazilian Health Devices, a project run by the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association (ABIMO) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).

Launches

On the list of Brazilian health equipment and products, we see new ones in areas such as cardiology, including products from the Nexcor family, made by Corcam Tecnologia, debuting at this year’s edition of the fair.

The Nexcor family consists of a smart, autonomous monitoring system that tracks heart health and can give early warning of possible complications. Corcam Tecnologia will be launching NX3L, which already holds approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as two new eHealth products for remote cardiac monitoring that are in their final stage of development.

Nexcor is a line-up of disruptive technology that uses resident software to autonomously, remotely and automatically read the electrical signals of a patient’s heart using electrodes. These signals are then processed using algorithms, resulting in an electrocardiogram, which is sent to a Nexcor Monitoring Centre, where cardiologists confirm the diagnosis and adopt the measures required to help the patient.

Corcam plans to open offices in the US in 2017.

Specialising in heart and brain prosthetics, HpBio presents the Smart PIC. Designed to monitor intracranial pressure and temperature, this equipment is a complete micro sensor solution that is easy to use and does not require pre-implant catheter calibration or restarting the monitoring.

HpBio has been at MEDICA for the past decade and is looking to form partnerships to introduce the Intracranial Pressure and Temperature Monitoring Catheter to the European market, starting next year.

Meanwhile, the IBF (Indústria Brasileira de Filmes) presents radiology and image diagnosis products. It is the top graphic art film and plate company in Brazil and Latin America, and one of the four largest manufacturers of offset printing plates in the world, exporting its products to more than 70 countries across the globe.

BRAZIL TAKES 47 COMPANIES FROM DIFFERENT SEGMENTS TO MEDICA 2016

The delegation of companies from the Brazilian Health Devices (BHD) program has been participating at the Dusseldorf fair for 15 years

Brazil marks its 15 years at MEDICA, in Dusseldorf, between November 14 and 17, with a delegation of 47 health equipment companies aimed at various sectors, including: medical-hospital, laboratory, physiotherapy and orthopaedics, implants and consumables.

Due to the diversity of the portfolio of products on offer, these Brazilian companies will be located throughout different pavilions: 39 have their stands in Hall 17, while another four are set up in Hall 3 and the remaining four are in Hall 4.

The companies are members of Brazilian Health Devices (BHD), an export project run by ABIMO (the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association) in partnership with Apex-Brasil (the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency).

ABIMO superintendent Paulo Henrique Fraccaro’s assessment: “The health sector is increasingly looking for savings and efficiency in its treatments, anywhere in the world, and Brazilian companies, which have been investing in the quality of their products for years, now have all the conditions they need to meet this demand profile because our products offer an excellent cost-benefit ratio”.

Business

In 2015, BHD companies closed almost US$ 10 million in business resulting from their MEDICA participation, where they made over 2,400 contacts with representatives from companies in 121 countries.

Laísa Franca, the coordinator of ABIMO’s trade promotion, says “These are very expressive figures for the sector’s Brazilian industry”, adding “Faced with an internal economic outlook that is less than satisfactory, Brazilian companies have been seeking out new export opportunities and have been getting results”.

The Brazilian companies expect that the sales volume for the 2016 edition of the fair will surpass last year’s result.

Happy Hour

The 15th anniversary of the Brazil pavilion will be celebrated with a Brazilian happy hour, at which typical food and drink will be served, such as the traditional caipirinha, in addition to live Brazilian music. This event is exclusive to ABIMO guests and the Brazilian companies at MEDICA 2016.
