Product development: Experts for every step at COMPAMED 2017
Design, research, development – the way to the finished medical device is long. At the same time, each development step requires different knowledge and skills. Here at COMPAMED 2017 you will find a large number of expert service providers who will be on hand to provide you with advice and support.
Small size medical technology – miniaturization at COMPAMED 2017
Small, smaller, miniaturized – medical technology is to become smaller and smaller and at the same time more powerful. Sensors, pumps and valves shrink to micro-size. This makes the application much more gentle for the patient. Discover the variety of technical wonders at COMPAMED 2017.
Materials at COMPAMED 2017
In medical technology, special attention must be paid to the choice of materials especially regarding the manufacture of surgical instruments or implants. That is the reason why material technology is a very fast developing discipline. COMPAMED 2017 shows what are the trends in material industry.

Shapes, colors, safety – Re-Design in medical technology
When is the redesign of a medical device necessary? And what relevance does it have in the medical technology sector? We informed ourselves about this and visited WILDDESIGN Germany and Salvia medical. Here we learned the reasons for redesigning medical devices and we found out what this type of process looks like.
3D Printer – Implants at the push of a button
Implants are needed in different types of situations, for instance after an accident or because of a tumor. If the injury is very complicated, patient-specific implants are able to help. These types of implants are made with the help of a 3D printer at the Chair of Fluid Technology and Microfluidics at the University of Rostock.
