SGS Successfully Presented Comprehensive Medical Devices Service Offering at MEDICA 2013

SGS’ renewed participation as an exhibitor at MEDICA 2013 raised considerable interest from an industry that’s adopting electro-medical technologies at an ever-increasing pace. MEDICA 2013 took place last November in Dusseldorf, Germany. An annual event that brings together all the relevant players in the global medical industry, last year it attracted 132 000 visitors, with more than half of those attending being international visitors (from 120 countries).

MEDICA 2013 - Latest Innovations in Medical Devices

Over four days, visitors to MEDICA 2013 were treated to an extensive program of conferences and forums, ranging from sports medicine to hospital management to disaster and military medicine. In addition, a wide range of events highlighted new developments in medical tech, health IT, wireless, and wearable medical devices.


These latest innovations in medical products and services were showcased by 4 641 exhibitors representing 66 nations in a 115 000 m2 arena.

Increasing Interest in Innovative Electro-Medical Devices

Research numbers from MEDICA organizers reveal, as in previous years, more than half of all visitors were specifically interested in the electro-medical and medical technology fields. The high interest in electro-medical devices prompted many visitors to enquire about SGS’s global portfolio of testing, certification, audit and training services.


Exhibiting as part of the Association of British Healthcare Industries’ pavilion, the SGS global team of medical devices experts was on hand to present the expanding range of SGS services to the international audience, such as the company’s comprehensive product safety testing solutions for manufacturers of medical diagnostic X-ray devices. The SGS test report service received a lot of attention due to the way reports can act as global safety passports when placing electro-medical devices on the worldwide market.
