As countries around the world grapple with the fallout caused by the novel coronavirus Covid-19, innovation in medicine and medical technology becomes even more vital. As such, in this issue of Medical Technology, we take a look at key med tech incubators driving the next generation of healthcare innovators, and learn about a new device that could be a game-changer for urine analysis.

Plus, we round up the leading companies poised to claim a piece of the lucrative robotic surgery market as time runs out on Intuitive Surgical’s patents, examine a method of preserving human livers that can dramatically extend the transplant window, and profile prominent developments in photonics that could shine a light on new treatment options for a multitude of conditions.

Also, we talk to East Suffolk and North Essex Foundation Trust chief technology officer, Darren Atkins, about the role of virtual workers in the NHS, find out how the SightPlus VR headset is helping visually impaired patients to see more clearly, and take a look at a new procedure called robotically assisted sonic therapy from University of Michigan spin-out HistoSonics, which could revolutionise cancer treatment.

All this, plus the latest insight and analysis from GlobalData.
