MEDICA 2018 – requirements, trends and solutions

5,273 exhibitors from 66 countries and around 120,000 visitors made the MEDICA 2018 again the largest trade fair in the international healthcare industry. “For us this year’s MEDICA proved to be a great success and an important occasion to present ourselves as a specialist for medical technologies”, says Nils Drewes, Sales Director at SOMATEX®.

Visitors were particularly interested in the new product highlights SOMATEX® presented at the booth. Among the highlights: SurgLite. The single-use illumination device for the OR was introduced this year and follows the trend of more time and cost-saving medical solutions. “We are satisfied that SurgLite received such an excellent response from our visitors”, comments Nils Drewes. SurgLite is a bendable LED system that can be easily fixed to retractors.

Many visitors also took the opportunity to become acquainted with SOMATEX® advanced portfolio of tumor clip and wire markers. “As we are operating worldwide, the MEDICA offers a great chance to meet with partners from all over the world and to discuss their specific requirements and needs”, says Nils Drewes.
