In their worldwide unique combination, MEDICA and COMPAMED represent the entire process chain and the complete range of medical products, devices and instruments – from development, production to marketing and services after commissioning in practices and clinics.


In the context of the corona pandemic and an increasing outpatientization of health care, products and services for the so-called point-of-care, e.g. B. Laboratory medical applications for patient-oriented diagnostics. Suppliers also benefit from this with their innovations in the field of microfluidics (liquid management in the smallest installation space), a key technology with regard to the further development of compact and easy-to-imply implement analysis methods.


The corona pandemic has also given a “booster” to the digitization of health care in many countries. This suits, among other things, the digitally driven startup scene, which is offered numerous options in the trade fair days to present itself to investors and the medical community. The MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM (in Hall 12) as a dialogue platform on digital health trends with integrated pitch competitions especially for startups and the MEDICA START-UP PARK as a large joint stand (also in Hall 12) with around 40 participations are to be mentioned.


The range of innovations shown here ranges from a palm-sized system for wireless monitoring of foetuses, novel ophtalmoscopes for cancer or stroke diagnostics to various solutions based on artificial intelligence, such as medical nutrition management or the effort-reduced production of electronic medical records.


Olympians give tips at the MEDICA SPORTS HUB


New in the MEDICA program is the MEDICA SPORTS HUB (in exhibition hall 4) in the middle of the topic segment of physiotherapy. On all running time days, the expert audience is invited to training and dialogue with Olympians on its action area, who are among the most successful in the history of Germany: Heike Henkel (Olympic champion, world champion and world record holder in the high jump) and Lars Riedel (Olympic champion and multiple world champion in discus throwing). In a half-hour change, short lectures by them, round tables and also sports exercises to participate are planned on a daily basis. The topics range from mental health, nutrition, team success to professional endurance training or aspects of workplace health promotion.


Not only sports celebrities have announced themselves at MEDICA 2022, but also the names of top-class speakers can be found in the program of the specialist forums as well as the parallel conferences. Thus, Federal Minister of Health Prof. Dr. Karl Lauterbach at the kick-off event for the 45th German Hospital Day (DKT), the annual leading event for the top management of German clinics, (Monday, 14.11. / CCD East).


Karl-Josef Laumann will also visit MEDICA 2022 as Minister of Labour, Health and Social Affairs in North Rhine-Westphalia and will address questions of future health policy in the forum dialogue on the third day (16.11.) at the MEDICA ECON FORUM organized by the Techniker Krankenkasse (in Hall 12).


In addition to the 45th German Hospital Day also the Conference for Disaster and Military Medicine DiMiMED and the MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE for the international specialist scene of sports medicine and sports science.
