Israel's medical device industry gains a spotlight

Increasingly, in recent years, Israel has become a place to watch for the next big medical device, imaging and diagnostics companies. Venture investors are committing their investments, and larger device and Big Pharma companies are turning to these startups and smaller companies for M&A opportunities. How did this happen? The Times of Israel credits the country's entrepreneurial culture, the large amount of Israel's population involved in the medical profession and the country's military expertise in imaging systems for the trend. All of this makes this week's third annual Conference and Exhibition for the Medical Device Design & Manufacturing Industry in Haifa one to follow, the article notes, as the event will highlight some of the more innovative Israeli companies with products under development.
