What goes together and which manufacturing technique is best for producing it? Sometimes it's the simple questions that can give you a headache. All the better that at COMPAMED 2021 you will find experts who can answer these questions! This trend topic already gives you a foretaste.
A practical presentation of the latest developments throughout the process chain. Expert talks 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 are additive manufacturing, electronic and regulatory affairs. Power presentations on innovative new markets round off the exciting program. The COMPAMED SUPPLIER FORUM is organized by DeviceMed, the leading German-language trade magazine aimed at manufacturers of medical technology products.
COMPAMED trade visitors come from the world's most important markets. And experience a diversity that is unique in the world. A comprehensive range of components, parts, services, digital technologies and more that will create the medical technology of tomorrow.
Visitors to COMPAMED are the specialists who matter. The COMPAMED attracts various target groups:
Heads of research and development departments
Engineers and technicians for R&D and production departments
Technical procurement managers
Medical technology exhibitors of MEDICA
Qualification and validation specialists
A high level of internationality, visitors from the key world markets, high levels of decision-making expertise, many medical engineering exhibitors from MEDICA as visitors to COMPAMED from 62 countries of the world, of which 92% are involved in acquisition decisions: These are the reasons why the exhibitors at COMPAMED are very satisfied and impressed by the professional level of the visitors.
Our hygiene and infection protection concept for MEDICA and COMPAMED trade fair 2021
Back to Business. To make sure only good ideas are circulated at our end we do our utmost: with standards for hygiene and infection protection for all our events at the Düsseldorf exhibition grounds – for our exhibitors, visitors, partners and members of staff. All take action to make trade fairs also an experience in this day and age – safely and jointly. #PROTaction
Imagine being able to measure your blood sugar levels, know if you've had too much to drink, and track your muscle fatigue during a workout, all in one small device worn on your skin. Engineers at the UC San Diego have developed a prototype of such a wearable that can continuously monitor several health stats – glucose, alcohol, and lactate levels – simultaneously in real-time.
Future quantum computers are expected not only to solve particularly tricky computing tasks, but also to be connected to a network for the secure exchange of data. In principle, quantum gates could be used for these purposes.
An international group of scientists have demonstrated that nanowires can act like a quantum one-way street for electrons when made of material known as a topological insulator. The discovery opens the pathway for new technological applications of devices and demonstrates a significant step on the road to achieving qubits, which can robustly encode information for a quantum computer.
Lymphedema often occurs in survivors of breast cancer, because they are at high risk for lymph node damage or removal during surgical procedures. The locations of these nodes often make fluid and proteins collect in the arm, so treatment consists of compression sleeves that seek to restore normal flow. However, current techniques are expensive and inconvenient.
Implantable bioelectronics are often key in assisting or monitoring the heart, brain, and other vital organs, but they often lack a safe, reliable way of transmitting their data. Now researchers at Columbia Engineering have invented a way to augment implantable bioelectronics with simple, high-speed, low-power wireless data links using ions.
An international research team has successfully developed and tested a concept in which nerves are stimulated with light pulses. The method provides considerable advantages for medicine and opens up a wide range of possible applications.
Quantum dots could one day constitute the basic information units of quantum computers. In collaboration with colleagues from Copenhagen and Basel, researchers from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have decisively improved the manufacturing process for these tiny semiconductor structures.
