Notebook ODMs Eye Medical Electronics Device Opportunity

Reading time ( words)

Taiwan-based ODMs have been partnering with medical product players to push into the medical electronics device market, according to a Digitimes report. For one, Compal Electronics recently cooperated with Portugal-based Alert Life Science to sell its products in Taiwan, and has partnered with medical product maker Apexcare to develop a smart medical care cart.

Meanwhile, Wistron recently established a subsidiary for biotechnology, which will cooperate with medical product players to establish a platform. The company has also cooperated with the government of Chongqing, China to establish a joint venture to help non-China medical product players obtain local certification. Digitimes added that Wistron has also invested in Maya International Company, which develops medical equipment with integrated medical records.

Finally, Quanta has partnered with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop the QOCA platform, which has already been adopted by a few hospitals in Taiwan.

3D Printing and Medical Electronics: A Disruptive Beneficial Technology

12/11/2018 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
We are seeing significant advances and increased uses for 3D manufacturing in medicine—many more than 3D-printed and conductive circuits on device structural components. There is enough movement in this area that 3D additive fabrication in medicine—including but not limited to 3D-printed circuits—has become its own topic, and one that we will be watching and continuing to cover.
