Medical devices

New technology and a changing focus is driving growth in the medtech sector.

The changing focus in healthcare from treatment to prevention and an increased user-centric approach is propelling medtech progress. The rapid uptake of technology using the capabilities of consumer devices and wearables, the application of big data and human-led innovation is fueling the wave of change.

Digital technology has entered all aspects of the industry, whether it is companies that specialise in AI and machine learning, robotics, telehealth and apps, or more traditional companies who must adapt and adopt such technologies to survive and thrive.

Medtech is a marketplace with unique challenges – global multinationals sit side-by-side with SMEs, universities and clinician-led innovation, resulting in a commercial playing field rich in collaboration. IP challenges are categorised by the complications of ownership in multi-party projects and the fast-changing case law around patenting in contentious areas such as medical methods, AI, data handling, software and commercialisation. HGF’s multidisciplinary teams are the ideal support in this evolving and complex sector.
