I take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our members for their enormous efforts in making the role of medical technologies more widely known during MedTech Week 2018 last June.

Now in it's fourth year, MedTech Week brings out the best in the companies and national associations that represent our industry. Together, they have served up dozens of examples in unwavering ingenuity to illustrate the value of medtech.

Keeping you running

MedTech Europe go the extra mile in Brussels

The MedTech Europe team joined 40,000 runners on a warm day in Brussels for the annual 20km road race on 27 May, just as preparations for MedTech Week reached fever pitch.

Representatives from the Brussels office, member companies, national affiliates and patients, in collaboration with the Belgian Paralympic Committee, ran to raise awareness of the life-improving technologies that touch our lives. An even larger group from the Brussels office was on hand to cheer on the runners and direct supports and participants to our booth at the finish line in Parc Cinquantenaire.

Passers-by were also invited to take photos in our photo booth. This was more than just great fun. For every photo taken, a donation was made by MedTech Europe to “la Tête hors de l’Eau”, a charity that provides prosthetic limbs to children in need. A video summary on the value of medical technology was shot on the day and is available online.

‘The Brussels 20km helped to illustrate how people facing physical challenges can run, dance, walk, and live life to the fullest thanks to their new hips, insulin pumps, lenses, or pacemakers,’ said Tanja Valentin, Director External Affairs of MedTech Europe.
