Spanning over four days, Arab Health 2018 hosted a large number of exhibitors and delegates all congregated to display innovations, engage in discussions and exhibit simulations all aimed at achieving a quality healthcare system in the region.
“We’re excited to kick off the 43rd Arab Health which is expected to welcome more than 4,200 exhibiting companies and 103,000 attendees from 150+ countries,” said Ross Williams, Exhibition Director of Arab Health. “With the demand for healthcare products and services continuing to increase within the region, Arab Health is a must-visit exhibition for anyone associated with the industry, not only in the Middle East but across the globe.”
Among the exhibitions were a wide range of healthcare innovations including the artificial intelligence enabled Somatom Edge Plus CT scanner by Siemens Healthineers which, according to Siemens, uses technologies that bring tin-filtered scanning, 4D, and quantitative imaging to provide diagnostic imaging at the appropriate dose and with reproducible accuracy.
“At Siemens Healthineers we aim to lead healthcare innovation that enables providers to achieve better outcomes at lower costs,” commented Ole Per Maloy, the new Managing Director of Siemens Healthineers, Middle East and South East Africa. “This is why we are continuously developing our products and service portfolio, as well as our training courses that help medical professional develop skills needed for the future. The products we’ve launched here at Arab Health 2018, including the Cios Spin mobile C-arm and the Mammomat Revelation, are redefining the biopsy workflow in mammography and are pushing the boundaries of precision medicine and patient comfort.”
Another highlight of the exhibition included the Hands-on Training stations which were designed to equip healthcare professionals with tools and skills that can be applied to their practices. The sessions focused on techniques that use advances like fusion imaging and augmented reality.
“The Hands-on Training Zone allowed our experts to teach best practices in medicine, using advanced augmented reality products that closely simulate a real medical environment,” said Sukhdeep Sachdev, Chief Executive Officer of Leader Healthcare. “Our sessions included a maternity simulator which prepares healthcare professionals for complications experienced during childbirth, as well as an ultrasound simulator that helps professionals practice an ultrasound examination through AR solutions.”
