Technological developments and innovation are the basis for the future of the medical device industry. Diagnoses and therapies based on new medical device technologies are being developed and implemented worldwide. With the use of surgical robots, one of the pioneering developments in the field of surgery, improvements will be achieved in outputs such as infection risk, pain, duration of surgery, recovery time and postoperative complications, and the development of minimally invasive surgery will be made possible. While producing facial implants specific to the patient with three-dimensional printers, another innovative technology, organ transplants such as kidneys and liver are aimed to be performed without the need for donors.
“Internet of Things is the main trend”
Stating that the internet of things and wearable technologies are the main trend in patient follow-up developments, ARTED Chairman of the Board Ayhan Öztürk said, “The wearable technology market, whose size was 5.5 billion dollars in 2017, is expected to grow by 18.5 percent annually and reach 14.6 billion dollars in 2023 and “These technologies, which talk to each other, will provide feedback to the physicians about the patient’s condition,” especially in the treatment for prevention and improvement.
The diagnose will be made soon
Explaining that imaging has a very important place in the early diagnosis of diseases, Öztürk said: “In the development of modern medicine, health professionals depend on the visible light spectrum in patient screenings, while biological processes such as tumor activity cannot be detected by visual diagnosis of humans. Diagnosis and imaging are evolving with advances in DNA and artificial intelligence. In the light of technological developments, it is expected to obtain realistic anatomical images in the field of imaging and the software will provide a diagnosis that the physician makes in a very long time for a brain tumor in a very short time.’’
