Workshop: Miniaturized Electronics for Medical Products

Berlin, /

Medical engineering products like pacemakers, hearing aids, microfluidic systems and retina implants are now simply unimaginable without microsystems. Held during COMPAMED 2011 in November, the workshop “Miniaturized Electronics for Medical Products” presented the innovative products just around the corner thanks to Fraunhofer IZM’s technologies, including sensor-actuator components with wireless interfaces that literally disappear into the body, bandages with integrated sensors and t-shirts with electro-microfluidic functions. With participation by the companies Orthopädie Technik Winkler, maris TechCon and AIBIS Informationssysteme GmbH, the program extended beyond innovative research to include the commercial viability of products.
