15/11/2017In 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.
31/08/2017Today we are visiting the INGPULS Company in Bochum. It produces nickel-titanium shape memory alloys used in medical devices. In this interview with Dr. Burkhard Maaß, we find out how SMAs work and in which areas they are being used.

15/03/2017The trade fair for suppliers and manufacturers of medical technologies invites you to Düsseldorf from 13 – 16 November. Welcome to COMPAMED, the leading international market place for the medical suppliers' industry and product development.
05/01/2017Implants 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.
05/01/2017When 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.
23/11/2016Epileptic seizures happen suddenly, can look quite different from one person to the next and often also go unnoticed. Now a wearable sensor system that patients can wear anytime can help to assess their frequency and severity. The EPItect Project that is being coordinated at the University Hospital Bonn is involved with this type of system.
17/11/2016Digitalization and networking are the two dominant trends in medical technology. COMPAMED 2016 also takes this into account – from example at the joint stand of IVAM in hall 8a. Visitors can find many sensors and actuators that are able to be networked with each other in medical devices. We took a look around for you with our camera.
16/11/2016COMPAMED is the hotspot for complex high-tech solutions. For the 25th time, the partner fair of MEDICA is taking place and brings together the international suppliers of the medical technology industry in halls 8a and 8b. We asked them how they celebrate this anniversary and how they evaluate their position within the industry.
15/11/2016COMPAMED has begun and visitors are wandering through the exhibition halls 8a and 8b. There is much to discover and marvel at. We visited the halls for you and made some impressive pictures.
