3D printing offers a lot of possibilities for medical technology. But it still has not arrived in many hospitals and companies yet. This is why the FabBus of the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences brings the technologies and workshops around it directly to the user.
Rehabilitation is hard work – for the patient as well as for the therapist. Thousands of repetitions are necessary in order for previously known movement sequences to solidify again in the brain. This requires enormous physical effort and a lot of concentration. At MEDICA 2019 we will find out to what extent robotics can help here!
Hightech solutions for hygiene in the medical sector have been getting better and faster. There are not only machines that can disinfect everything by themselves, but there are portable and handy sterilisation solutions as well. At MEDICA 2019 you can find everything that is up-and-coming around medical hygiene.
Modern and innovative medical consumables of today - from bandages to surgical gloves. Sustainability and environmentally friendly recycling are also in the focus here. At MEDICA 2019, we will find out which innovative products the medical market currently offers!
Digitalization offers many opportunities for the hospital of the future. The Smart Hospital focuses on networking and short distances and stands for targeted and efficient care. At MEDICA 2019, we discover what technology can already provide today and where it is being used.
The MEDICA App COMPETITION is all about medical solutions for smartphones. The competition aims to advance the development of innovations and integrate them into the everyday lives of physicians, hospitals and patients. From more than 100 entries, an international jury selected 15 finalists to present their app-based solutions at MEDICA 2019.
A wearable that controls your posture, catheters with AI and home care with robot support – these are only some of the highlights than visitors can expect at MEDICA from 18 to 21 November in Düsseldorf. Our editorial team has already been able to have a look at Sunday.
Young, innovative and dynamic – that‘s the START-UP-PARK at MEDICA 2019. 36 start-ups from various sectors are going to present their products and are looking forward to meeting interested trade visitors and ambitious investors. Our videos will give you a small foretaste of the start-ups and their innovations.
We bring exhibitors and visitors together – with the Messe Düsseldorf Matchmaking tool!
In medicine, robots are already taking over tasks that only a few years ago were exclusively in human hands. Especially in the field of rehabilitation, they will play a major role in the future. In the "RoSylerNT" project of the German Sport University Cologne, a robot arm from KUKA is being used here for training purposes. Find out why a robot is the right training partner!
Movement, strength and coordination - after injuries as well as in healthy athletes, these three components must be intact for movements to run smoothly. At the Beta Klinik in Bonn, Dr. Markus Klingenberg, a specialist in orthopaedics, trauma surgery and sports medicine, offers neuromuscular training with a playful character that can be adapted to the patient's needs.
Medical imaging techniques have developed considerably in recent decades. In addition to morphological imaging techniques more and more functional imaging techniques are used in oncology that can continously record the functions of specific organs locally and regionally in real time. These are groundbreaking for diagnostics, therapies and preoperative preparations.
New active substances that are suitable for drugs are initially tested in animal experiments. However, the results cannot always be transferred to the human organism. At the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Prof. Ute Schepers from vasQlab explains how active substances can be tested in human tissue without endangering human health.
