In the next issue of Medical Technology, we get down and dirty with the subject of faecal microbiome therapy. While medical reports show increasingly positive results for faecal microbiota transplants as a solution for addressing metabolic diseases, but questions have also begun around how to regulate donor selection and screening. We find out more.

Also, we examine what it takes to get medical devices approved for paediatric patients, take a look at the tech transforming neonatal baby care, and explore the potential of a growth-accommodating implant that is specifically designed to grow with a child.

Plus, we learn why vagus nerve stimulation could spell an end for gastric bypass surgery, investigate what can be done with the growing amount of plastic waste created by PPE, find out how FemTech Lab is supporting healthcare start-ups, and take a look at an at-home solution that could transform sleep apnoea treatment.
