Medtech vs chronic diseases

For people with chronic conditions, health technologies are part of everyday life

Throughout MedTech Week, the role of medical technologies in managing the burden of chronic diseases was the focus of a social media campaign by Sailab – MedTech Finland.

Patient organisations engaged in the campaign and health awareness days were selected to highlight how medtech supports the diagnosis and the care of chronic diseases. For example, the role of technologies in diabetes, irritable bowel disease (IBD) and cardiovascular diseases was in the spotlight.

The goal was to emphasise how medical technologies can be a crucial feature of daily life for people living with chronic diseases. With the prevalence of many long-term illnesses rising in European countries, detecting and managing these conditions is vital to achieving patients’ best outcomes and delivering value to health systems.

Sailab also shared a glossary of key medtech terms – ranging from ‘Notified Body’ to ‘in vitro diagnostics’ – to help demystify the sector for the general public. This is increasingly important as medtech products are now commonly found beyond operating theatres and clinics. From blood glucose monitors and knee supports to contact lenses and pacemakers, health technology is part of everyday life for millions of people in Europe.
