Innokas Medical attended the “Innovation Forum of Medical Technology” in Tuttlingen, Germany on 11th October, 2018, together with OuluHealth and other Oulu based companies. At a joint stand, Innokas Medical, Screentec and OuluHealth Labs presented their expertise to the local medical technology manufacturers, some of which belong to the biggest and most successful companies of their kind.
OuluHealth organized the joint stand in the Innovation forum for the fourth time. The event, which was organised by BusinessOulu’s partner cluster, MedicalMountains in Tuttlingen, for the 10th time, is very well-known among medical technology manufacturers in southern Germany. It gathers around 300 attendees of CEO’s and decision-makers. Tuttlingen has a reputation of having a huge amount of high-class manufacturers of surgical instruments, endoscopes and implants, most in the size of SME’s.
The forum itself combined business and science. This year, the program included new ideas, projects and research results as well as high degree applications and company presentations at stands located in the lobby of the hall.
"While we had expected meeting more potential customers, we got several pointers from other participants to potential projects for us. Adding to that inspiring keynotes, this time about human health in space, and ample opportunity to deep discussions with speakers, we will return", says Jan Pauve, Business Development Director at Innokas Medical.
At the Oulu stand, the participating enterprises constructed a modern experience around smart wearables, mobile sensors, testing environments and expertise to bring digitalisation into traditional surgical equipment.
"We are happy to welcome companies from Oulu here. The presented technologies are very different from ours and complementary to the businesses here so they make the event be even more valuable", commented Britta Norwat, Project Manager at MedicalMountains.
