Live and Practical -- MEDICA - World Forum for Medicine


TRUMPF Medizin Systeme GmbH + Co. KG

Live and Practical

At MEDICA 2011, TRUMPF Medical Systems will be showcasing innovations for state-of-the-art OR processes. For the first time, the company will also be holding a versatile program of expert talks and positioning workshops.

The TRUMPF Forum on the company's booth in Hall 13, A 42 is not aimed solely at physicians, but also offers interesting, practical training sessions for clinical specialists and care staff.

On the first two days of the trade show, November 16 and 17, leading experts will be speaking on current issues: from understaffing and skills-shortage in intensive care units through to hygiene in the OR and new minimally invasive surgical techniques.

On the following two days of the trade show, the TRUMPF Forum will be offering a wealth of hands-on events: positioning workshops will examine the specific requirements and risks when moving patients in various surgical disciplines. The workshops will be led by clinical specialists from German and Swiss hospitals with extensive experience in positioning patients. They will give workshop participants practical tips and assistance. Particular attention will be given to decubitus prevention, demonstrating creative new possibilities for positioning and how to use special aids.
