ABIMO Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association


Brazil’s portfolio features cardiology, prosthetics and radiology products and equipment

Responding to the rise in internal demand and opportunities in the international market, Brazil’s health products and equipment companies have been increasing their investments into R&D and innovation. During this process, they have added the country’s hallmark creativity for the health sector, resulting in innovative products to be found among those launched at MEDICA, held between November 14-17, in Dusseldorf.

Taking part are the 47 corporate members of Brazilian Health Devices, a project run by the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association (ABIMO) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).


On the list of Brazilian health equipment and products, we see new ones in areas such as cardiology, including products from the Nexcor family, made by Corcam Tecnologia, debuting at this year’s edition of the fair.

The Nexcor family consists of a smart, autonomous monitoring system that tracks heart health and can give early warning of possible complications. Corcam Tecnologia will be launching NX3L, which already holds approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as two new eHealth products for remote cardiac monitoring that are in their final stage of development.

Nexcor is a line-up of disruptive technology that uses resident software to autonomously, remotely and automatically read the electrical signals of a patient’s heart using electrodes. These signals are then processed using algorithms, resulting in an electrocardiogram, which is sent to a Nexcor Monitoring Centre, where cardiologists confirm the diagnosis and adopt the measures required to help the patient.

Corcam plans to open offices in the US in 2017.

Specialising in heart and brain prosthetics, HpBio presents the Smart PIC. Designed to monitor intracranial pressure and temperature, this equipment is a complete micro sensor solution that is easy to use and does not require pre-implant catheter calibration or restarting the monitoring.

HpBio has been at MEDICA for the past decade and is looking to form partnerships to introduce the Intracranial Pressure and Temperature Monitoring Catheter to the European market, starting next year.

Meanwhile, the IBF (Indústria Brasileira de Filmes) presents radiology and image diagnosis products. It is the top graphic art film and plate company in Brazil and Latin America, and one of the four largest manufacturers of offset printing plates in the world, exporting its products to more than 70 countries across the globe.
