MEDICA and COMPAMED 2020 to be launched as 'virtual.MEDICA' and 'virtual.COMPAMED' with three focal areas
MEDICA 2020 and COMPAMED 2020, the world-leading information and communication platforms for the medical technology industry and supplier industry for the medical technology industry, will take place entirely online from 16 to 19 November 2020. Within the framework of 'virtual.MEDICA' and 'virtual.COMPAMED', decision-makers from all sectors of the healthcare industry can then expect a comprehensive range of products and services at https://virtual.medica.de and https://virtual.compamed.de consisting of three focal areas: The Conference Area (conference and forum program), the Exhibition Space (for exhibitors and product innovations) and theNetworking Plaza (networking/ matchmaking).
Researchers of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have cultured so-called intestinal organoids from human intestinal tissue, which is a common byproduct when performing bowel surgery. These small "miniature intestines" can be used for molecular biological examinations and allow for a direct application of research results to humans, thereby making animal experiments redundant.
The Engineering Design and Technological Development Group (DIDET), from the University of AlicanteArtefactosLAB, has once again taken a step forward in terms of social innovation with the design of a new handheld robotic exoskeleton. Named [flick], this robotic exoskeleton improves the lives of people with limited or no ability to move due to neurological and/or physiological disorders.
The medical technology industry is facing major challenges due to digitalization, new manufacturing technologies and changes in the regulatory framework. In order to strengthen the innovative power of the SME-driven German medical technology industry, the BMBF joint project "EUREKA-AMeLie aims to create new opportunities for a structure for networked product development.
An international team led by current and former McMaster University researchers has developed an artificial lung to support pre-term and other newborn babies in respiratory distress. The group has proven the concept using a live piglet, a major step along the route toward approval for use in humans, where the portable device could save many lives and prevent catastrophic damage.
Ventilation systems in many modern office buildings, which are designed to keep temperatures comfortable and increase energy efficiency, may increase the risk of exposure to the coronavirus, particularly during the coming winter, according to research published in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics.
Carnegie Mellon University's Maysam Chamanzar and his team have invented an optical platform that will likely become the new standard in optical biointerfaces. He's labeled this new field of optical technology "Parylene photonics," demonstrated in a recent paper in Nature Microsystems and Nanoengineering.
A medical robotic hand could allow doctors to more accurately diagnose and treat people from halfway around the world, but currently available technologies aren't good enough to match the in-person experience.
Biosensors that are wearable on human skin or safely used inside the body are increasingly prevalent for both medical applications and everyday health monitoring. Finding the right materials to bind the sensors together and adhere them to surfaces is also an important part of making this technology better.
