Major progress has been made in medical devices in four innovative ways

The global medical device industry has made remarkable progress in the past 30 years.  At present, clinical use is very frequent “electronic diagnostic imager” for example, the market not only has high image resolution CT, PET, MRI and color Doppler B ultrasound and other electronic diagnostic instruments, and even swallow capsule endoscope.  And up to The Finch surgical robot allows surgeons to perform extremely precise surgery without having to do it themselves.  This would have been unthinkable a few decades ago.  In addition, the advent of electronic cochlear implants and other advanced medical devices has made “deaf hearing” no longer a scientific fantasy, but a reality.

New implantable medical devices

Implantable medical devices have become one of the best-selling products in the international medical device market, and the development speed is fast.  For example, from dentures (dentures), artificial lenses, implantable prostheses (such as artificial knee joints, etc.), vascular stents, to implantable electrodes (such as new electrodes implanted in the brain for Parkinson’s disease treatment and bladder implantable electrodes for urinary incontinence in elderly women and other products) are hot products in the market.  In the coming year, the development of new implantable medical devices will become one of the main goals of the medical device industry.  

This kind of products include: treatment of spinal cord lesions of spinal implants, cheaper implantable electronic cochlea (treatment of congenital deafness), new harmless breast implantable prosthesis, new denture materials, a new type of intraocular lens products, new long-term implantable vascular resistance stenosis stent products, new implantable artificial joints and other all kinds of new type of implantable medical device products, etc.  Implantable medical device products have broad market growth space, its clinical use is great.  

“Medicine and mechanical integration” medical instruments

Insulin pen can be regarded as one of the models of medical devices integrating medicine and equipment.  The use of medical devices in one class, patients can very convenient self-treatment at home, avoid waiting in the hospital, greatly saving time.  Since the 1990s, prefilled syringes and all kinds of therapeutic devices with drugs (such as aerosol inhalers) have become the most popular new generation of one-in-one best-selling products in the international market.  The development of a new generation of integrated products will become an important development goal and task of the medical device industry in the coming year.  For example, American manufacturers plan to launch a variety of long-term adhesive for the elderly in the next year (the United States and other Western countries will be such as ointment adhesive medical device products are also included in the management).  

Because the elderly are more prone to pain than other groups of people, the frequency of the use of medical stickers is higher for them.  American manufacturers use mature nanotechnology to develop new drug patches that combine drug molecules into polycarbonate thermoplastic films with absorbable biological materials (such as HM-4100).  The patient should tear the protective film only and stick the medicine to stick in the relevant part of the body, the medicine stick can evenly release the medicine (such as antihypertensive medicine, analgesic medicine, etc.), and effectively develop the therapeutic effect.  Experts predict that this kind of new product will release a large market space.  

New electronic medical products

With the aging of the population in many countries, it is urgent to develop new electronic medical products suitable for the elderly.  Electronic medical is a relatively broad concept, in addition to the paperless office products such as electronic outpatient records, the west will be able to wear in the elderly or patients with a variety of remote electronic monitor (such as electronic watches, electronic blood pressure monitor breathing rate, blood oxygen meter, electronic heart rate monitor, etc.) are classified as electronic medical products category.  

Developing countries are desperate for products

As China, India, Russia, Brazil, Mexico and other emerging countries economic take-off, the people of these countries can afford more practical medical equipment new products – from the most common electronic step test table, electronic blood pressure, blood glucose meter, electronic massage instrument, electronic pain therapeutic home oxygen generator, such as the price is relatively high mass YiXie products will walk into homes.  The rapid rise of people’s ability to pay in developing countries has paved the way for the popularization and application of such medical devices in families.
