Highlights of MEDICA 2018

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)

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.
