By Claudio Buttice     Nov 8, 2016 in Health
The Foreign Trade Administration at the Ministry of Economy of Israel together with the Non-Profit Organization Israel Export Institute, will present the Israeli Pavilion at MEDICA 2016 the upcoming international medical exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany
MEDICA is the world's largest medical event held in Germany on November 14 - 17 that consists of a 40-years-old trade fair where global experts in medicine gather to learn about the latest news in hospital and clinical technology. The exhibition will also include a vast interdisciplinary forum as well as several conferences on secondary topics such as sports, disaster and military medicine, hospital communication and physiotherapy.
Israel's leader high-tech companies in healthcare and medical IT fields will be presented in the Israeli booth, where they are going to showcase their latest innovation in terms of futuristic medical devices and groundbreaking discoveries. The cooperation between the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Health and the Export Institute is going to coordinate more than 60 top technology companies. These will show to the world some breakthrough innovations in medical science such as Motorika's robotic arm, GlucoMe's latest wireless Blood Glucose Monitor and Medasense Biometrics' objective pain monitoring solutions. The Israeli government is the only one who will support its delegation to the conference.
The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute (IEICI)’s Life Science Department is devoted to identifying and matching business partners from the Israeli life science industry and the Government itself. The department is, in fact, responsible for the successful organization and management of the Israeli National Pavilion at MEDICA as well as many other international exhibitions such as Hospitalar (Brazil) and CMEF (China). While speaking about the institute's history, Tomer Epstein, Manager of Medical Device and HIT within the IEICI, told us that: "The Medical Device & HealthCare IT Industry in Israel is growing rapidly, with around 80 new companies joining in each year. There are several fields of medicine of which Israel is considered to be a global tech leader, such as: Telemedicine, Emergency Medicine, Rehabilitation, Cardiology, Wound Care & Management and more."
We got the opportunity to get a sneak peek on one of the upcoming solutions provided by QinFlow Ltd, one of the leading medical technology companies featured in MEDICA's Israeli Pavilion. QinFlow is presenting the Warrior, a new portable blood and IV fluid warming device that could grant immediate transfusion, potentially saving countless lives.
