COMPAMED Innovation Forum 2022
This year's COMPAMED Innovation Forum will focus on innovative technologies for neurological applications. COMPAMED and IVAM are looking forward to your participation and a lively exchange!
Industry meeting point
Always located between two trade fairs, the Innovation Forum offers another meeting point for the industry. We are glad to be able to offer you an exciting program again this year
Seizure detection devices for epilepsy
Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological diseases. Recognizing small seizures in particular is often still problematic. Prof. Dr. Yvonne Weber wants to change that.
Medical wire-based components
What influence do materials, surface treatments, and processes exert in the manufacture of medical wire-based components for neurological applications?
Advanced contract manufacturing
What challenges do contract manufacturers face? And how far can miniaturization still be pushed? Michael Fink from Valtronic has the answers.
COMPAMED Innovation Forum brings together users and developers of high-tech medical technology for hospitals and practices
With the COMPAMED Innovation Forum, current medical technology topics are presented once a year by leading experts and discussed with the participants to identify current challenges and solutions and to prepare them for the relevant topics at COMPAMED, the largest European trade fair for suppliers to medical production.
This year's COMPAMED Innovation Forum took place on Thursday, 02 June 2022, 15:00 – 17:30 hunder the motto "Innovative technologies for neurological applications".
You will find the program online soon. Access data for the digital-only "Zoom" forum will be sent out shortly before the event.
One billion people suffer from central nervous system disorder
Neurological and mental diseases of the brain are not a marginal phenomenon. These diseases burden the lives of many patients and their relatives. According to WHO estimates, one billion people worldwide suffer from disorders of the central nervous system, e.g. depression, dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease or the consequences of a stroke.
The treatment of diseases of the central nervous system cannot be carried out exclusively within the framework of drug therapy. Today, innovative medical technologies also help to improve the quality of life of those affected. Unlike pharmaceuticals, which help regulate the chemical system in the human body, neuroimplants target the electrical nerve pathways of the spinal cord and brain.
Lectures and discussions present technical solutions
The presentations will show various products and applications. In addition to implants, technical aids for the care and support of patients with neurological diseases will also play an important role. In the subsequent discussions, users can discuss the new developments and further needs with researchers and manufacturers.
The lectures will be held in English.
