Medical Technologies

Medical technologies are products, services or solutions used to save and improve lives. If you scratched your knee as a child, you applied a plaster; if your eyesight become blurry, you get glasses. From covid tests to x-rays, medical technology is with you throughout your life and if you are unwell, diagnostics and medical devices help doctors and healthcare professionals improve your health as quickly as possible.

Should you need surgery, medical technologies will ensure you get the care you need in a way that is safe and minimally invasive; if your blood vessels become blocked, stents can help clear the way; if you are seriously ill, an MRI scan can find the cause; if you require monitoring, digital health tools can check your health status and communicate vital data to health professionals.

A medical device can be an instrument, apparatus, appliance, software, implant, reagent, material or other articles. From syringes and wheelchairs to cardiac pacemakers and medical imaging technologies (such as MRI, CT and X-ray machines), medical devices can play a range of roles in maintaining and restoring health.

The medical technology industry is one of Europe’s most diverse and innovative sectors.
