On Brazil’s list of products and equipment for the fair are solutions for the medical-hospital, neonatology and physiotherapy sectors.

Medical-hospital furniture

Hospimetal, a maker of medical-hospital furniture and equipment, showcases at MEDICA 2016 its adult model HM 2002 D bed, which has the quality to compete against the big names in the international market while offering more affordable prices. The bed has removable head- and footboards that are structured along the sides using polyurethane injected material.

The bed also features digital controls through a with a waterproof, membrane keypad, two digital controls along the bed rails for internal and external access, one digital control located at the foot for general positioning, including one-touch locking, CPR and Trendelemburg commands.

Medical-hospital equipment

Specialised in hospital solutions, Grupo Medical introduces the Gastropexia Kit to its portfolio. It comprises a GMI percutaneous probe, indicated for patients subjected to temporary or permanent gastrostomy, providing gastric access to food and medication when the oropharyngeal pathway is incapacitated.

Aspects such as the anatomic fit and biocompatibility of the medical grade silicone used in the probe allows for comfort, safety and an improvement in the patient’s quality of life. With a focus on the international market, the group is finalising the CE certification process and plans to expand its market share abroad.

Neonatology and physiotherapy

Companies well-established in the international market, such as Carci and Fanem, are also present in the delegation of Brazilian companies at MEDICA.

Fanem, a manufacturer of neonatal products, exports to more than 100 countries spread over all five continents. It is taking a portfolio to Dusseldorf that has already gained its share of the market, including the Duetto, the first Brazilian equipment to have hybrid functions in neonatal treatment, designed to meet the needs of neonatal health teams.

Fanem’s sales manager Braulio Sumida states, “The Duetto’s characteristics allows neonatal teams fast and easy access to the patient, reducing the amount of movement required and thus improving the treatment perspective”.

The equipment, which has a gyrating, sliding base, was designed to minimise the risk of infection and contamination, avoiding the accumulation of foreign matter and facilitating asepsis. The company is also presenting other products for intensive care, light therapy, hospital cots and paediatric resuscitators.

Carci, meanwhile, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016 and brings to the fair a broad and deep portfolio of physiotherapy solutions.


The mission of the Brazilian Health Devices project, run by ABIMO in partnership with Apex-Brasil, is to nurture the industry’s exports of health articles and equipment. BHD is the brand that unites the national sector’s exporters and represents them internationally.
