New perspectives on the intersection of tech and medicine

MedTech Pulse is a newsletter publication on innovation at the intersection of medicine and technology. We share unique perspectives on major news, insights from the startup ecosystem, evocative infographics and inspiring conversations with the people behind the innovation.

What is MedTech?

Our body is a marvel. But by nature it is not perfect. We get sick, grow old or suffer accidents that limit us in our everyday lives. This is where the challenges of MedTech begin.

Technology-driven medicine has made huge strides in the past decades. It is not an understatement to say that technology changed the way we preserve and create health. Even to the extent that former science fiction is becoming a permanent reality: Whereas just a few years ago the loss of sight was a definitive diagnosis, new medical devices are making it possible for blind people to see again. Robots can perform surgeries that were unthinkable only a short time ago. Algorithms massively accelerate the discovery of new drugs and allow diseases to be detected earlier than ever before. Platforms enable contact between patients and healthcare providers across the globe and thus completely new forms of treatment.

What was once unthinkable is now driving a global innovation ecosystem of startups, corporates, organizations and individuals. Welcome to the world of MedTech.
