    The microwave helmet can be used for rapid detection of intracranial hematomas in patients with traumatic brain injuries

    In a recently published scientific article, researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, and the Sahlgrenska University Hospital, present results from the initial patient studies that were completed in 2016. The study shows a new application for microwave technology in health care. Microwaves have previously been used to distinguish stroke caused by bleeding from stroke caused by a clot. This new study shows…

    Seminar about new EU regulations for medical devices at Sahgrenska Science Park

    The European Parliament adopted the two regulations on 5 April 2017. They will now be published in the Official Journal. Today’s medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices are becoming ever more sophisticated and innovative. Existing rules date back to the 1990s and have not kept pace with scientific and technical developments in the healthcare sector. Under current rules, it’s not always possible to establish who produced devices sold…

    HealthTechArena- en ny mötesplats för ledare inom life science med fokus på affärsutveckling

    2009 startades affärsnätverket Medicin i Väst (MIV) med målsättningen att stärka företag och entreprenörer i västra Sverige inom Life Science-området. Förra året tog styrelsen i Medicin i Väst ett beslut att byta namn till HealthTechArena. Lars Hedman är styrelseordförande. Hej Lars! HealthTech, hur tänker ni här – det heter ju Life Science? – Nja, jo, men medan Life Science handlar mycket av att upptäcka och uppfinna nya mediciner eller teknologier…
