Brazilian medtech companies to unveil orthopaedic, imaging products at MEDICA 2016
In all, 47 Brazilian medical device companies will participate in MEDICA 2016, to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany during November 14-17. These companies will showcase some innovative developments and will officially launch them from an international platform. For instance, on the list of orthopaedics launches, Neoortho will launch Neospine Cannulated Pedicle Screw, which is a spinal implant and is part of the company’s portfolio of pedicle screws, providing an option for low bone quality, osteoporosis and/or congenital deformity cases. Currently, the company is growing and consolidating its position in Latin America, while simultaneously seeking to expand in emerging markets and East European countries. Another player Traumec specializes in products for craniomaxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery and orthopaedics. It will launch NeuroEndoview Plus, a cannula to access lesions deep within the brain. This product is cylindrically shaped and features a set of dilators that assist in creating the entry orifice, which is less aggressive to the brain tissues, faster and offers the surgeon a greater field of view. These companies are members of the Brazilian Health Devices, a project run by the Brazilian Medical Devices Manufacturers Association (ABIMO), in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
