MEDICA is one of the main fair meetings in the world about healthcare business that will take place between November 12 and 15, 2018 in Dusseldorf.
Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) is a Research and Technological Organization (RTO) that studies the behavior of the human body with the aim to improve the competitiveness of companies and industrial sectors.
IBV mission is to develop and deliver solutions based on science and technology in order to improve people’s health, well-being and quality of life.
For this reason, IBV will participate in MEDICA with a stand at pavilion 11 within the EXHIBITION FAIR focused on ELECTROMEDICINE / MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY as well as in the BROKERAGE EVENT, focused on meetings arranged with commercial or business exchange interest.
During these days, IBV will exhibit developments and high-value services related to healthcare (diseases and capabilities), well-being and quality of life (safety and prevention, comfort and satisfaction, performance, leisure, etc.).
Specifically, IBV will present technology and software for biomechanical assessment, specialized medical devices and services for companies manufacturing medical devices.
Technology and Software for Biomechanical Assessment
IBV will show its Biomechanical Assessment Laboratory, a tool that generates objective and quantitative information to help clinical professionals allowing them to evaluate accurately and objectively the effectiveness and impact of their treatments on patient´s daily life.
In addition, those attending the fair will be introduced to Evalanz System, designed for the functional assessment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from balance disorders, and WAAS / IBV, a biomechanical assessment system specifically developed to control and assess cervical whiplash syndrome caused by traffic accidents.
Specialized Medical Devices
IBV develops devices like FallSkip that provide objective information through biomechanics for health prevention in specific population groups.
FallSkip application assesses the overall risk of falling by combining the result of the biomechanical test with the main risk factors, age, gender and patient history of falls. The fall risk result is available immediately after the test, which is accompanied by a comprehensive evaluation of the main biomechanical parameters related to falls; dy this way, clinical professionals are assisted during the diagnosis phase, making easier the decision making process.
Services for companies manufacturing sanitary products
IBV Health Care Technology of Group has a wide experience in development of products and health services that improve the quality of life for people in all fields related to health technology except supporting technologies within the activities of the IBV focusing on biomechanics, ergonomics and functionality.
In MEDICA, IBV will present its consultancy services throughout the life cycle of this type of products: design, evaluation of materials and biomaterials, documentation and CE marking and technical and clinical evaluation.
In addition, IBV will show the dDesign and manufacturing service for custom implants based on additive manufacturing technologies.
