A delegation of Israeli medical device and healthcare developers is this week exhibiting products at Germany’s MEDICA 2017, at an Israeli pavilion set up by the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute and the Ministry of Economy and Industry.

“Disasters, sudden catastrophic events such as earthquakes, complex and continuing emergencies such as a violent conflict are often unpredictable,” said Angela Rabinovich, director of the Life Science Department at the Israel Export Institute. In emergencies, she said, “resources are often limited and time is of the essence, thus innovative technologies for emergency medicine and trauma care are considered to be the most effective.”

The Israeli pavilion is showcasing emergency medical services specialized products developed by interdisciplinary teams of highly-experienced executives and R&D engineers, Rabinovich said. Each product is supported by internationally recognized medical experts particularly for intensive care, respiratory, cardiac, central nervous system and trauma medical emergencies.

“Our vision is taking these breakthrough solutions to impact communities globally,” she said.

The trade fair, one of the largest globally for the medical sector, runs November 13-16.
