COVID-19: the role of medical technology

Medical technology plays a vital role in testing who may have contracted COVID-19, ensuring that healthcare professionals can work safely and that quality care and treatment is available to all those who need it.

Three key categories of health products are critical in these times:
COVID-19 diagnostic tests (click here to know more)
Personal protective equipment (PPE), which include face masks, gloves, protective goggles and suits (click here to know more)
Respiratory support equipment, which includes ventilators and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)

You can learn more about these three categories of products by listening to our MedTech ON AIR podcast below.

Our members, both manufacturers and national associations, are working relentlessly to make sure that these products are produced and supplied to hospitals and healthcare systems in a time of unprecedented pressure.

Medical technology also plays a critical role in informing deconfinement strategies. For a deeper look into this you can listen to the podcast below:

As a European association, MedTech Europe supports these efforts. We coordinate and liaise among manufacturers, national associations and EU institutions to make sure that supply chains are not disrupted and access to all medical technologies can continue.
