Medtec China 2021 Rolls Out New Exhibiting Zone of Advanced Medical Equipment Design & Manufacturing Services
(Medtec China, Shanghai) China's medical device market is expected to surpass 900 billion yuan in size by 2022. Advanced medical products, however, are currently primarily imported. Last year, China called for actions to shore up its weak spot in advanced medical devices, accelerate studies on key technologies, and to thus seize independent control of the advanced medical equipment market.
The Cosmos of Medical Wearable Devices
In 1983, Sting wore a Casio calculator wristwatch on his "Wrapped Around Your Finger" album cover, an early “tech wearable.” Today, the world is seeing those once-trendy gadgets driving the delivery of human medicine, to the tune of $13 billion a year1 and growing. Amid the quantum shift from clever to clinical, what is happening in the medical wearable devices (MWD) industry, and what design considerations should be incorporated into the development process?
Wearable Medical Devices: What Do Design Engineers Need to Know?
Interest in wearable health technology continues to rise significantly, according to many reports. Health and fitness monitoring continue to drive demand, and emerging needs such as remote patient monitoring, home healthcare, and drug delivery could add to such interest. To help medtech product designers meet these needs and more, MD+DI asked a group of medical device engineers about the latest developments in wireless technology, battery life, data and security concerns, user needs, and more.
Remote Medical Device Servicing Is the Future
Change is hard. This may be the understatement of the year when it comes to moving toward remote service strategies in the realm of medical design and development. Why is it so difficult for medical device OEMs to embrace the remote aspect of machine diagnosis and problem resolution?
Why Should Medical Packagers Consider X-Ray Sterilization?
Medical device sterilization methods will continue to evolve as the industry develops new standards and solutions that are economical, environmentally sustainable, safe, and effective. In fact, FDA has launched innovation challenges to encourage the development of new and improved sterilization methods.
