COMPAMED is advancing from strength to strength. Rising visitor numbers are consolidating its position as a leading global event for suppliers to the medical industry. Many of the over 5,200 MEDICA exhibitors came looking for solutions at COMPAMED.
Our objective is clear: to make sure you get out of the blocks running, we want to improve the team play between suppliers and manufacturers even further in 2019.
Between walking at a leisurely pace and running for your life, human gaits can cover a wide range of speeds. Typically, we choose the gait that allows us to consume the least amount of energy at a given speed. For example, at low speeds, the metabolic rate of walking is lower than that of running in a slow jog; at high speeds, the metabolic rate of running is lower than that of speed walking.
The thump, thump of a baby's heartbeat is a milestone in any pregnancy. Now, researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have developed a technique that could allow expectant parents to hear their baby's heartbeat continuously at home with a non-invasive and safe device that is potentially more accurate than any fetal heartrate monitor currently available in the market.
For nearly 100 years, scientists thought they understood everything there was to know about how metals bend. Materials science and engineering researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have demonstrated that the rules of metal-bending are not so hard and fast after all.

WPI researcher's new liquid biopsy chip, made of carbon nanotubes, snares circulating cancer cells with far greater sensitivity and could make it possible to detect early-stage tumors, predict the course of a cancer, and monitor the effects of therapy.
Targeting medical treatment is a practice as old as medicine itself. But what is inside the body, is not so easy to reach. In such cases, a treatment like surgery might be called for. Researchers in Caltech's Division of Engineering and Applied Science are working on microrobots that can deliver drugs to specific spots inside the body while being monitored and controlled from outside the body.
A team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University has published a paper in Science that details a new technique allowing anyone to 3D bioprint tissue scaffolds out of collagen, the major structural protein in the human body. This first-of-its-kind method brings the field of tissue engineering one step closer to being able to 3D print a full-sized, adult human heart.
