Continuing to fulfill its significant part as a role model in pandemic management, Taiwan, through the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and with the participation of different Taiwanese companies, is conducting a series of webinars on smart medical products.

Streaming from Taipei, the webinars aim to promote a better understanding of Taiwan’s smart medical industry amid the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taiwan Excellence Smart Medical Express webinars highlight Taiwan’s strengths not only in telehealth but, more importantly, pandemic management.

Over the past decade, medicine and technology have joined hands to help change people’s lives. Today, global medical-related expenditure had already reached $8.7 trillion, making the integration of two industries even more valuable than before. The healthcare and medical industry have also become a huge business potential worth more than $158 billion with the application of medical Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

As extraordinary times come with extraordinary opportunities, Taiwan seizes the moment to thrive and shine. Driven by both the COVID-19 pandemic and launch of 5G mobile technology across the globe, Taiwan’s dynamic medical industry has shown its innovative power in smart medical technologies, surgeries, and medical devices.

The country has effectively showcased its capability and level of excellence in the use of telehealth technologies, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), and laparoscopic, endoscopic, and robotic surgeries, according to TAITRA President and CEO Walter Yeh during an online product launch campaign.

On August 19, TAIRA successfully held a one-hour webinar, a part of a series of events that highlight Taiwan’s strengths in the smart medical industry and boost economic activities amid the global standstill.

The online product launch included the introduction of Mediland’s surgical tables and surgical lights, MedicalTek’s MonoStereo endoscopic visualization system, Asiatic Fiber’s PPE textiles and surgical textiles, and suction machines used in Operating Rooms or ORs from Doctor’s Friend Medical Instruments. These products all provide smart medical solutions for hospitals and medical institutions. The event also attracted over 1,700 viewers online from Germany, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines, among others.

TAITRA also revealed that more events will be held in the future that will focus on medical products, including beauty products, eye care, and assisting devices for the elderly and in the field of dentistry.
