Product Developments in the Field of Portable Medical Equipment

29 September 2022

The availability of smaller, more portable medical equipment is revolutionizing almost every field of medical care. This is evident in the case of patient transport and ambulatory care environments, where the smaller the equipment is, the faster it can reach the patient. Compact, lightweight patient monitoring, and support equipment allow medical teams to provide high-quality care immediately on the spot. Another benefit of portable medical equipment is to bring reliable, easy-to-use health monitoring capabilities to home-care environments. The development of such compact and portable medical equipment has played a vital role in the migration of patient care services from the hospital to the home.

One of the factors supporting the growth of portable medical equipment is the introduction of new and improved products by manufacturers. There have been several key product development updates during the first six months of 2022. Abbott has received FDA approval for the next-generation FreeStyle Libre 3 system. GE Healthcare introduced Vscan Air, a wireless handheld pocket-sized ultrasound device that can be used for whole-body scanning capabilities. Philips recently announced the 510(k) approval of the Philips Capsule Surveillance solution and Roche launched the Cobas pulse system, a blood glucose management solution with mobile digital health capabilities to improve patient care.
