ISSUE 30 // august 2020

In the next issue of Medical Technology, out in August, we find out if a nanofluidic delivery system designed to help to reduce muscle atrophy in astronauts could have wider applications for patients suffering similar muscle deterioration symptoms on Earth, and investigate the need for coders and coding standards in the medical industry as devices become more personalised, adaptive and connected.

Also, we ask if mental health apps can truly take the strain for all the face-to-face appointments being missed during lockdown, find out if South Korea could be on track to become a new med tech giant after the country gained international attention for its response to Covid-19, and examine the future of telehealth in the US, where complex state-to-state regulation could become a major hurdle for practitioners.

Plus, we discuss the current state of cancer blood testing technology with US-based epigenetics company Volition, find out how European med tech companies are reacting to the delay of the EU’s Medical Device Regulation, and take a look at the concept of immunity passports to find out if the tech can live up to the hype.
