Medtech

A new era of developments using biomolecules, drug, sensors and IT    

The Medtech sector is entering a new era of developments using new technologies and integrating new components such as biomolecules, drug, sensors and IT. SICHH can help you to take the leap.

The medtech sector in Switzerland had the chance to build up on the existing and experienced watchmaking and jeweler industry. Those first medtech industries performed for example well in the dentistry and orthopedic area. Despite being today well-established, this sector will have to innovate to remain competitive. 

The medtech sector has already started expanding in several directions. The Telemedicine makes use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide monitoring and clinical health care at a distance. The implants and the personalized-medicine make use of new imaging technics, characterization and functionalization's of surfaces as well as 3D prototyping and printing techniques. In parallel, we find the combinations products which feature medical devices with new components such as DNA, proteins, cells, antibodies or drugs.

Several big sectors are merging and we need people understanding the challenges and technologies at the borderline.

At SICHH, we understand and foresee those new needs. Our center has been created to respond those growing demands.
