Le futur de la Medtech : 4 changements tectoniques technologiques qui remodèlent l'industrie.
"Driven by the development of medical knowledge and technology, we have always sought to innovate and improve medical technology (Medtech) to better cure the sick and improve the lives of the healthy.
Just as stars in our expanding universe are moving apart faster and faster, the pace of innovation in medical technology is accelerating since the turning point of the Scientific Revolution mid16thcentury, which triggered the end of the Middle Ages and the dawn of the Renaissance and its humanist philosophy.
Reforming human understanding by basing it on reason, mathematics and the rational observation of material realities, this new vision of the world has allowed modern science to emerge and our medical knowledge to be enriched. Consequently, very bold experimental primers and discoveries have occurred such as the invention of the microscope in 1590, the first canine blood transfusion in 1656 or the first appendectomy in 1763.
But if this first Scientific Revolution - that of the mind - allowed us to better understand the world, it was the following one, the Industrial Revolution (1760-1840), that allowed us to really transform it, bringing us into the current contemporary era and giving us the means to materialize and produce ever more numerous and innovative medical equipments and technologies.
Just to name a few remarkable ones along our compelling adventure (hang on!) (...)"
