Video: Digitalization in orthopedic technology – A craft is changing
Orthopedic auxiliary means are mostly still produced in manual labor today. But orthopedic technology is also trying out new ways by using tools like 3D scanners, digital models and 3D printing. Nadja Singer from Ottobock explains in our video interview how this changes the production of auxiliary means.
The WT | WEARABLE TECHNOLOGIES SHOW was once again the innovation hotspot and visitor magnet at MEDICA and offered more than 40 co-exhibitors a unique platform to present the latest developments and innovations in wearable sensor technology for the healthcare market. If you are interested in which technologies will become part of our everyday life in the future and solve our health problems, then the WT | Wearable Technologies Show is the right place for you.
Small and large, visible and invisible, for pain relief, for monitoring chronic diseases or as a support in everyday life – wearables come in many forms today.

Immerse yourself into strange worlds, solve tasks, experience adventures – computer games look especially realistic in Virtual Reality. Medicine is also making good use of virtual worlds: With CUREO, the CUREosity GmbH from Düsseldorf has developed a VR system for physiotherapy and ergotherapy. Thomas Saur and Stefan Arand, the founders of CUREosity, tell us in our video interview, how the system differs from other therapeutic measures, how it relieves therapists, and how it can be personalized for different patients.
Video: Improving rehab devices with experience
Successful rehabilitation requires not only a good therapist, but also good equipment. Enraf Nonius has been a manufacturer of electrotherapy and rehabilitation equipment for 90 years. At MEDICA 2021, they will report on the experience they have gained in the industry over the years.
Video: Hybrid rehabilitation
Many people have delayed necessary therapies during the Corona pandemic, also in rehabilitation. But a regular treatment is especially important here to recover lost abilities and maintain existing ones. Hybrid, digital products that connect therapists and patients online can help. We learn more about this at MEDICA 2021 at the stand of Titanis Sp. z o.o.
