Medical technologies are with you all the time

Medical technology plays an important role in our lives. Our products range from simple, long-standing innovations like plasters or wheelchairs, all the way to cutting-edge technologies, such as ultrasound scans or medical apps.

From diagnosis to cure and prevention, medical technology is at the start and at the end of almost any disease or condition.

We represent the medical technology sector and we aim to provide solutions to many healthcare challenges wherever they are – in hospitals, in the community setting and at home

During the COVID-19 pandemic

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the European medical technology industry has taken an important role in providing needed medical technologies such as personal protective equipment, diagnostic tools, and respiratory equipment to support the fight against COVID-19. But that’s not all.

In the new normal

During lockdowns and in the transition towards a new normal, medical technology helps to keep the healthcare system up and running. With innovative remote solutions and digital management tools set-up for many diseases, we ensure that patients receive the appropriate care while keeping doctors and medical staff safe.

In shaping the future of healthcare

Our sector will continue to play a significant role in shaping how we respond to future health challenges such as pandemics. Through ground-breaking medical technologies, we will play an important role in reshaping the future of healthcare. With health technologies such as wearable medical devices, remote surgery and other digital tools, we’re there to help healthcare systems take a giant leap in making healthcare better, faster and available for everyone.

 

Medical technology deserves its rightful place in the healthcare landscape and that’s why we’re putting it in the spotlight.
