The Future of Medical Devices; an Educational Lunch & Learn Session Hosted by Alleima

Tuesday, February 7th from 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. PST
Location: Room 212AB

A notable trend in the medical device market is miniaturization. Smaller medical devices make for less invasive procedural techniques, less trauma during surgeries, and shorter recovery times.

Not only does this help patients return to their normal lives much sooner, but it takes considerable strain off healthcare infrastructure that is being stretched by a growing number of patients with long-term health needs.

The miniaturization of medical devices requires ultra-fine wire components. Achieving this demands precision cutting and wire grinding capabilities beyond which many medical device manufacturers have in-house. Learn more how Alleima’s business unit medical contributes to this trending area.
