Because the human population is growing inexorably and we are getting older and older. In the last 60 years or so, the worldwide Life expectancy increased by around 20 years. This development is due not least to modern medical technology. Medical technology devices, imaging diagnostics and all the components built into medical technology must meet high requirements so that they can meet the necessary, often global, permits and safety regulations.

Brand new medical technology

Below we present innovations for medical technology such as Drives, Sensors, Dosing, Materials, robots and robot drool or medical devices and assemblies as well as numerous application examples for your brainstorming and new development.

Igus0415Lubricant-free, media-resistant, non-magnetic, corrosion-free - these are decisive criteria for components in medical technology. Especially for the industry Igus developed the new plain bearing material "Iglidur AB". Antibacterial plain bearings made of this material help to reduce the germ load and are also lubrication and maintenance-free.

Many stroke patients around the world suffer from hemiplegia. A exoskeleton like the harmony of Harmonic Bionics help in physiotherapy to rebuild the nerve tracts in the arms and shoulders. RoboticSupported exoskeletons should be able to be quickly adapted to the patient's body size. For this purpose, the developers rely on the lubrication and maintenance-free as well as light ones bearings from Igus.

A product development that makes everyday life easier for many people is the best reward for the designer. A prime example of this is the wheelchair coupling Rollikup from Teuto reserve gGmbH. First developed on behalf of a wheelchair user, the coupling, which is as simple as it is ingenious, has developed into a successful product. Trailers, suitcases and much more can be connected to the wheelchair with the wheelchair via the trailer coupling. All it takes is a flick of the wrist. controls from Heinrich Kipp Werk make that possible.
