Is This a New, Data-Led Era for Cardiology?
Diagnosis of heart failure must be rapid and accurate. However, that can be a challenge for doctors without the right information and data.
With opportunity rife all over the world, I wanted to share some of the most exciting growth happening within contract manufacturing for medical devices. Here’s five companies that everyone should be getting excited about.
For this episode of CM Conversations, Ben Thompson & Jerome Richards, Directors at CM Medical, spoke with Rob Jenkins and Will Flack from F&J Agile Solutions.
I spoke with CEO and serial entrepreneur Janne Huhtala who has a track record of working with start-ups in neuromodulation. This technology has the potential to change millions of people's lives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has seen unprecedented pressure placed on the ventilator market. We want to know, how have you coped?
In this episode it was all about imaging, as we caught up with Renaud Maloberti, Chief Commercial Officer for ENDRA Life Sciences.
Before he founded global diabetes management platform One Drop, Founder, CEO and diabetes patient Jeff Dachis was tired of feeling like a patient, and wanted to feel more like a ‘diabadass’.
In July 2018 I wrote about the part that point of care ultrasound (POCUS) would play in the future of the imaging market. I’m not sure where two years have gone, but since then the companies, personnel and their technology have evolved considerably.
The structural heart space is one of the most exciting areas in the whole of medical devices. A broad term, covering a range of cardiac conditions, the advances in technology over the last 20 years has been extremely impressive, with no sign of slowi
Now technology is revolutionizing refractive surgery, putting an end to this guesswork and helping motivate better patient outcomes.
Aesthetics is a hot bed of innovation and pioneering start-ups are thriving at the heart of this market.
From talking to experts in my network, many have pointed out a rising misconception. Some individuals among of the healthcare community believe that we’ve reached the ‘best we can get’ with CRM devices.
There’s no perfect formula to becoming a successful billion-dollar company in medical imaging, or else we’d all be billionaires. However, this combination of ingredients does seem to create a common recipe for success.
To mark work World Diabetes Day, I’ve decided to champion some of the hottest technologies on the market right now. Marrying purpose with design, it’s these four that are standing out in an increasingly saturated market:
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death globally, accounting for 17.9 million mortalities each year. To battle these ugly death-toll statistics, more companies are emerging with innovative, life-saving treatments across the globe.
This World Stroke Day I wanted to help raise awareness about a few medical device companies who are doing amazing things to help diagnose and treat this life-threatening condition.
It’s respiratory care week, so I’ve decided to travel back in time a discover how treatment has evolved. The bible, Ancient Greece, owl’s blood and iron lungs - it’s been quite a journey.
We travelled to London to meet with one of the most innovative ultrasound device manufacturers in the world. They’re tearing up the imaging space right now, bringing the world’s first handheld whole-body ultrasound device to market.
The ‘implant files’ have been published. Following research conducted by over 250 journalists from 59 media organisations across 36 countries, reports of ‘adverse incidents’ stemming from implanted medical devices have hit the headlines.
I don’t want to immediately lose half of my readership by delving into deep, inaccessible science so please bear with me here, but on this occasion it’s necessary:
It’s not often that med tech makes front page news, but it has today - with Apple’s announcement yesterday that they’re including an FDA approved ECG scanner in the Series 4, their latest smartwatch.
Firstly, let’s define what Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is. It’s a significant public health challenge and is estimated to affect 4% of men and 2% of women worldwide.
As a specialist in the surgical robotics sector, it might not seem like the best idea to be talking about its limitations. But every day I’m speaking to candidates and clients who are running into these objections to utilising a robotic solution.
When robotics is mentioned in the surgical space, the first thing anyone thinks of is Intuitive Surgical’s Da Vinci.
Feel ill? Go to the doctor, get a diagnosis, take some tablets, feel better. Hurt your tooth? Go to the dentist, have it repaired, take painkillers, feel better.
When you think about investment and innovation in the medical industry, woundcare (WC) doesn’t exactly spring to mind. So, is this the pinnacle of woundcare technology? Or can we look forward to more disruptive technologies hitting the market soon?
The Cardiac Transcatheter Valve business, particularly TAVI, is an area that has been causing disruption in the cardiovascular industry for years - slowly eating away at the Surgical Valve space.
