The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has hit industries hard, grinding many operations to a complete halt. But that hasn’t stopped some companies from putting their engineering and manufacturing skills to good use in the race to design and develop ventilators. We find out what happens when experts from outside the medical industry turn their attention to healthcare, and take a look at how bottlenecks and shortages have limited the availability of key medical products.

Also in this issue, we examine enhanced lung monitoring with UK start-up Cambridge Respiratory Innovations as the company works to scale up production of its N-Tidal device, learn how AI is being used to improve remote care management for older patients, and get to grips with the high-tech world of ‘healthable’ hearing aids with Starkey.

Plus, we explore the potential of smart glasses and augmented reality in real-life operating theatres, track the rise of one of the UK’s fastest growing med tech start-ups, Perspectum Diagnostics, and find out how video games are being employed to help treat a variety of conditions across the medical field.

All this, plus the latest trends, insight and analysis in medical devices and technologies from GlobalData.
