Microtechnical components are important components of medical devices. At COMPAMED 2022 you could find out what innovations and improvements there are and how they will continue to advance medical technology in the future!
Exhibitors for microtechnology and manufacturing of components
The joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network with the Product Market "High-tech for Medical Devices", was located in Hall 8a and focused on the innovations from key technologies like microtechnology, nanotechnology, photonics or advanced materials.
Developments in communication and energy transmission
Active implants can be used to monitor various bodily functions. They can also send impulses to the heart, hearing or electrical prostheses. At the same time, they are becoming smaller and smaller - and, if possible, will soon be supplied with energy from outside the body.

Better wound care with light and sensors
Chronic wounds place a heavy burden on patients and the healthcare system. The Institute of Textile Technology at RWTH Aachen University is therefore designing a novel wound dressing that will intelligently support wound healing with light therapy and sensors.
A practical presentation of the latest developments throughout the process chain. Expert talked focus on mechanical and electronic components, innovative materials, manufacturing processes, manufacturing services of all kinds, design and usability aspects and quality assurance. Further main topics were additive manufacturing, electronics, regulatory affairs and cyber security. Power presentations on innovative new markets rounded off the exciting program.

Johnson Matthey Medical Device Components focusses on the production and machining of medical components. We talked to them for our video interview at COMPAMED 2022 to learn more about components made from precious metals for microtechnology and implant applications and how they can improve the quality of life for patients.

Quality of life through quality components
After surgery or due to other health conditions, some patients rely on enteral nutrition. Cedic is an Italian company that provides components for related products. We met them at COMPAMED 2022 and asked how patients benefit from these products and how they maintain quality in production and thus quality of life for patients.
