COMPAMED Innovation Forum 2024

Smart Implant Technology: Innovative Production and Future Applications
Jun 3, 2024, 3:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
English virtual
Zoom webinar

Intelligent implants in medical technology represent a fascinating innovation that is revolutionizing healthcare. These small but powerful devices are inserted into the human body to take over, support, or restore various functions. From pacemakers to artificial joints and novel neurological implants, they offer a wide range of solutions for medical needs.

Customization for optimal implant compatibility

The adaptability of intelligent implants is just as important as their functionality. Modern implants are increasingly personalized to meet the individual needs and requirements of patients. This approach not only enables more precise treatment but also improves tolerability and long-term outcomes for patients.

Innovative manufacturing processes

A key element in the success of implants is the continuous development of the materials and technologies used in their manufacture. Advances in biocompatibility, durability, and functionality have helped to significantly improve the performance and safety of implants. The future of implant technology promises even more exciting developments. With 3D printing and nanotechnology, implants can be made even more precise and customized. In addition, artificial intelligence and sensor technology can take implant monitoring and customization to a new level by providing real-time data and enabling automated responses.

Target group of the event

Apart from component and device manufacturers, the event is also aimed to developers and users (e.g. doctors), who can inform themselves about current topics.

Annual medical technology innovation outlook

With the COMPAMED Innovation Forum, recent medical technology topics are presented yearly by leading specialists and discussed with the participants to identify current challenges and solutions and to prepare them for the relevant topics at COMPAMED, the largest European trade show for suppliers to medical production.

In cooperation with our long-term partner Messe Düsseldorf, IVAM organizes this year's COMPAMED Innovation Forum as an online event via Zoom on June 03, 2024. 

The presentations will be held in English.
