Raumedic will be exhibiting smart solutions for medical technology at this year’s Compamed in November – including a prototype of a new tubing system for artificial respiration.
A digital calling card in the second component of the connector will store production-specific information in the future.
Dr Thomas Ruhland, innovation manager at Raumedic, said: “We are still working on the exact design of the disposable component, and of course we want to focus on the needs of the users as we do so.”
The company will also showcase tubing, syringe plungers and sealing elements made from silicone as well as silicone solutions for ophthalmology. Among its products for eye care, the company produces silicone sleeves, injectors for inserting intraocular lenses and tubing sets for laser-assisted cataract operations.
Against the backdrop that many manufacturers of medical devices are increasingly seeking out PVC alternatives, Raumedic has developed a range of PVC-free plastic solutions. A coextruded tubing made from EVA and styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), and a TPE drip chamber are ideally suited for gravity infusion kits.
Dr Ralf Ziembinski, head of tubing business unit, said: “This development can be used for the administration of parenteral nutrition or medication, as well as for transfusions.”
Using the liver transplant device “Metra”, from the British company OrganOx as an example, Raumedic will put its expertise in accessories for transplant medicine to the test. Visitors to the booth will be able to see first-hand how the device interacts with the complex tubing system from Raumedic.
The company also has a stand at Medica where it will present products including the Neurovent measuring catheter, a device that can simultaneously measure intracranial pressure, the temperature and oxygen partial pressure inside the brain.
