ISSUE 26 // APRIL 2020

In the next issue of Medical Technology, we take a look at the growing number of health tech incubators emerging to support start-ups in the industry and examine an unusual addition to the gift bags distributed at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony – a single-use, mid-stream urine collection device for diagnosing urinary tract infections.

Also, we review the companies poised to secure a piece of the robotic surgery market as Intuitive Surgical’s patents expire, find out how supercooling could help to extend the lifespan of human livers outside of the body, and round up key developments set to shake up the photonics market.

Plus, we learn how virtual workers and automation are transforming the NHS, explore ways that VR is being used to treat patients with visual impairments, and speak to HistoSonics about a new procedure called robotically assisted sonic therapy, which is designed to treat cancer.
