Video: Physiotherapy today: virtual and diverse
Whether taping, motoric rehabilitation or gamification - physiotherapy today is diverse. More than 500 specific exhibitors in Halls 4 and 5 at MEDICA 2018 will be demonstrating exactly what the world of physiotherapy has to offer.
Man and machine have been working hand in hand in industry for a few years. Now KUKA is even offering a lightweight robot LBR Med, which is specially certified for integration into a medical device. This is unique in the world. At MEDICA 2018, KUKA showcases the LBR Med in different applications together with partners. Watch the movie and get a gimps how medical robotics might look like in the future.
Whether CT, MRT, X-rays or ultrasound – imaging methods provide insights into the human body and are irreplaceable for diagnostics. They are part of everyday hospital life since a long time, but what is currently happening in this field? We took a look – at MEDICA 2018.
Many diagnostic and treatment questions can be answered with a glance inside the body. At the MedicalTek stand at MEDICA 2018, we learn how imaging systems in minimally invasive surgery can help physicians.
When sudden cardiac arrest occurs, every minute counts to prevent severe damage to the patient. AED devices are proven to increase the survival rate during these events. One who has first-hand experience with this is Donovan Casey.

Since Konrad Röntgen discovered X-rays in 1895, this type of diagnosis has been part of everyday hospital routine. But what innovations will there still be in this area of imaging methods in 2018? PROTEC gives us an insight into the fascinating world of X-rays at MEDICA 2018.
Artificial intelligence and algorithms that become ever more complex are increasingly used in devices in the hospital. This does not only bring speed, but also safety to the treatment and care of patients. We learn more at the stand of Verso Vision at MEDICA 2018.
Opening up new markets - no problem at the world's leading trade fair for the medical sector.
Video: Wearables and Smart Textiles
Whether intelligent Smartwatch, a vest that measures heart rate or a pocket-sized allergy test: Wearables and smart Textiles are important health aids, but how practical are they really? We did the test at MEDICA 2018.
New technologies lead to new challenges, but also open up new possibilities. At the stand of Medicus AI at MEDICA 2018, we will find out what they look like specifically for medicine. The company has developed an app based on Artificial Intelligence to help understand medical reports
Whether with or without disability, one-handed typing could make our work more efficient. You can't imagining this on a standard keyboard? The developer of TiPY can't do too. But in the interview at MEDICA 2018 he gives the answer how it could work in the future.
MEDICA does not only take place in the halls: You can see some ambulances in the area outside hall 5.
Vacuderm for kids is a children's tourniquet designed for the child to 'assist' the procedure and pump the dome. This new device will help improve success rates of venous access and is available with a child friendly turtle and a hedgehog design. (Hall 16/G25-1)
FOBA presents a software update for its laser marking workspaces at MEDICA 2018. It enables the exact alignment of the laser marking with a camera that has been integrated into the laser system, even when products are placed arbitrarily within the marking field. This makes expensive mounting devices unnecessary. (Hall 15/E05)
In Hall 10/G05, Fraunhofer IGD presents software solutions for improving patient care, such as virtual biopsies.
Happy Birthday! The Dr. Schumacher GmbH has celebrated its 40th birthday - and MEDICA has congratulated (left to right): Jens Schumacher, Michael Aupke, Vanessa Klein (Messe Düsseldorf), Dierk Schumacher. (Hall 6/H20)
The multifunctional "CT Trolley" does not give away directly what makes it special: It is radiolucent, so the patient can be examined right on top of it with CT and X-ray. (Hall 3/E83)
The Neurovent measuring catheter is a medical device that can simultaneously measure intracranial pressure, the temperature and oxygen partial pressure inside the brain. (Hall 11/G42)
PHYSIOMG from ASTAR is a device for low-frequency magnetic field therapy. Find out more in Hall 5, stand C33.
The AP-Tower can be individually adjusted in height, angle of attack and the loading and unloading situation of training and therapy. The symbiosis of active and passive measures enables a profound and effective treatment moment. You can find it in hall 4/A05.
Fancy a coffee break? Coffee and more at the coffee-bike in hall 17.
