With 1,600 active life sciences companies employing 83,000 people, Israel is home to a vibrant medical innovation ecosystem. Leveraging its strengths in relevant fields like artificial intelligence, medical devices, digital health, and R&D, the Startup Nation has pioneered some of medicine’s most exciting breakthroughs – from PillCam, a noninvasive colonoscopy alternative, to ReWalk, a robotic exoskeleton designed to enable mobility for the disabled.
Israel’s prowess in the medical field will be on display for the estimated 120,000 visitors slated to attend the Medica trade fair in Dusseldorf, Germany, from Nov. 18-21. Together with the Israel Export Institute, the Ministry of Economy and Industry’s Foreign Trade Administration will host a national pavilion featuring more than 70 Israeli companies whose work spans the spectrum of healthcare innovation, from medical devices to diagnostics to pharmaceuticals and everything in between.
The conference, which has now been taking place for more than 40 years, will feature 5,100 exhibitors from 70 countries across the globe, and will offer exhibiting companies exposure to international networks of medical entrepreneurs, physicians, hospital executives, researchers, and more.
Here’s a look at just a few of the Israeli companies set to showcase their solutions:
For Medica attendees, these and the other exhibiting Israeli companies offer testimony to the ingenuity and innovation of Israel’s medical technology sector. For people worldwide, they offer hope for saving lives – and dramatically improving the quality of life for millions more.
