Medical Technology

Never before has medical technology played such an important role as in the current situation. The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to rapidly drive the transformation of the healthcare market. Connectivity, security and data collection are at the forefront of medical advances and can significantly improve patient care. The Corona-Pandemic significantly increased the demand for medical products and solutions. In particular, demand increased for ventilators and patient monitoring systems, which are both product groups in which the S&T Group has been one of the leading suppliers for many years. As a system-critical supplier, the S&T Group was not affected by the government lockdowns and was able to make its contribution to the fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus by maintaining production.

From IoT endpoints to infrastructure systems, S&T ensures a modern, IoT-enabled healthcare system and smart real-time applications that can increase the quality of care and significantly reduce healthcare costs. These objectives are all the more urgent given the current worldwide skills shortage. S&T's solutions can help in key areas of healthcare thanks to its embedded wireless technology. One area where this is apparent is patient diagnostics and medical imaging to help physicians diagnose diseases, determine severity, and monitor patients. 

Another area is clinical and critical care, where the S&T Group supports its customers in developing solutions for innovative and productive workflows in their departments, offering state-of-the-art systems for patient monitoring, ventilation and reliable analytical instruments and laboratory equipment. Another medical area on which the S&T Group focuses is medical therapy systems, which meet the requirements for functionality and safety and offer the reliability, availability, durability and quality that customers are looking for.

In particular, the S&T Group increasingly stands out by manufacturing innovative products geared towards artificial intelligence (AI). In the medical field, sophisticated and reliable equipment is essential for surgical procedures. For example, the Soloassist II robotic arm from our customer AKTORmed GmbH with technology from Kontron makes it easier than ever for surgeons to work with endoscopes. 

This aims to reduce stress and risks during minimally invasive surgery, because the surgeon usually uses their own hand. This cutting-edge technology also enables speech recognition, which allows the surgeon to guide the surgical camera without increased risk to the patient. S&T is constantly finding practical solutions for its customers, while surgeons all over the world are benefiting from the range of hardware and software.
