ISSUE 29 // JULY 2020
The past few months have been a race against time for manufacturers as companies struggle to meet the demand for ventilators created by Covid-19. To help plug this gap, several Formula 1 teams put their race-winning capabilities to good use with ‘Project Pitlane’. We follow the performance of the teams to find out more, and examine the impact the pandemic has had on the wider medical device supply chain to find out what is behind ongoing equipment shortages.
Plus, we take a look at the challenges faced by smaller med tech companies looking to make a dent during a global health crisis, examine ways that technologies are being employed to aid the remote care of at-risk patients, and find out how one of the oldest wearable medical devices – the hearing aid – is getting a modern upgrade that bridges the gap between healthcare and consumer tech.
Also, we explore the use of smart glasses and augmented reality in real-life operating theatres, learn how Perspectum Diagnostics became one of the UK’s fastest growing medtech companies, and unlock the secrets of using video games in medical settings.
