Thematic Group Electronics & IT

Elektronik & ITMedical technology is strongly influenced by interdisciplinary collaboration and utilizes numerous key technologies. Electronics and information technology (IT) are playing a prominent role in this context. Almost all major innovations in medical technology result from a high degree of electronic expertise.

Applications in medical technology are demanding a variety of skills to the applied electronics. The trend towards miniaturization while increasing the complexity or the need of extremely energy efficient components for active implants are examples for this development.

Numerous applications of advanced electronics and IT can be found in the areas of detection, analysis and transmission of biosignals. The technology empowers the physician to continuously monitor a patient's condition - during hospitalization as well as at home in the increasingly important approaches of AAL (Ambient Assisted Living). In Medical imaging and the production of tools for minimally invasive procedures or audiological implants electronics and IT applications also play a major part
