Keeping Up with the Fast-Paced Medical Devices Industry

Manufacturing & Medical Breakthroughs

Knowledge and skills are like radioactive atoms. They decay with time. This is particularly true in the medical field as breakthroughs happen almost every day. The voracious appetite of human beings where eradication of diseases and difficulties is concerned has not and will not wane in the near future. The only course of action open to manufacturers keen on supporting this field is constant education. And that’s what Hammill Medical is all about.

A Legacy of Knowledge & Practical Information:

Knowledge isn’t limited to books. Often the best skill upgrades happen at summits, expositions and boot camps. To this effect Hammill, is all set to be a presence at some of the most prestigious medical device and orthopedic events of 2018. Commitment to quality and thought leadership isn’t easy. With that said, our team is ready to keep up with the fast-paced medical sector.

NASS Meeting 2018:

The spine implants market is rapidly growing. And is a very viable segment for us.

The North American Spine Society (NASS) provides enduring material in the form of spirited discussions and presentations which distill the latest in spine surgery, rehabilitation and support devices for quick consumption.

This year’s winter events will highlight both surgical and medical perspectives on spine care.

These events will allow us to learn about the latest technologies and capabilities for new and upcoming customer projects in the medical device industry

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Meeting 2018:

March 6th to March 10th 2018 New Orleans, Louisiana is home to a prestigious congregation of doctors, physicians, special practitioners, medical service providers and international vendors.

The reason? Up to date, accurate medical information and programs that enlighten registrants about all aspects of medicine and medical support.

We will use this opportunity to expand our circle and also stay abreast of what’s new in the industry.

2017’s Medical Device Industry Review

2017 has been filled with constructive internal effort and focus at Hammill Medical. Our team interacted consistently with our customers, leading doctors and other industry experts to positively impact our external audience base at large. These continuous initiatives make our team one of the most credible resources and leaders within the medical device manufacturing field. We challenge ourselves to meet or exceed medical standards like FDA requirements for contract manufacturing of implantable medical devices and surgical instruments.  As a result, our manufacturing capabilities consistently evolve to allow us to offer some of the most complex implants on the market. Plus extending our knowledge on fitness, exercise, and other health-related factors keeps our standing top within the sector.

Because of the complex manufacturing occurring at Hammill Medical, we must maintain more stringent operating procedures than other manufacturing companies. The quality standards we uphold are designed to ensure consistent manufacturing results as well as to exceed standards designated by industry and federal regulations.  Hammill maintains accreditations for medical device companies as set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and as required by ISO 13485. Meeting the requirements of these organizations is consistent with our commitment to optimal manufacturing process performance. The basics of the regulations and standards can be found in our February 2017 post.

As a qualified resource, we’re happy to share (and urge you to spread) the best exercises you can do for your body. The big focuses here are spine and back. You might be surprised to learn that all exercises are not created equally, and some of your favorite workouts can actually be more of a risk to your back and spine. The best exercise options will promote spinal health and stability setting you up for possible injury prevention down the road. Options like Pilates, yoga, and swimming help teach your body to move and support your spine during everyday activities. We recommend extreme caution with traditional sit-ups and overhead lifts as they can put too much pressure on the neck, spine, and lower back. Should you ever seek a spinal implant, we’ve got you covered.

Our most recent spotlight is an update on the advances in medical technology, specifically the benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery or MIS. As more procedures become less invasive, the patient outcome and recovery improve. As proven through prior surgeries, MIS means smaller incisions, reducing blood loss and trauma to the patient, smaller scars from such incisions, decrease infection rates, and shorten hospital stays. Many MIS surgeries can be performed as outpatient surgeries and/or require less than a 24-hour hospital stay. As the progression of technology within the medical industry advances, it looks like this surgery option is taking a front seat over older methods.

To stay abreast of industry updates, leading technology, and the best resource for orthopedic implants, spinal implants, surgical instruments, and other implantable medical devices for Complex Spine, Orthopedic Total Joint Replacement and Minimally Invasive Surgery applications, we invite you to follow our blog, add us on Twitter, connect with us on LinkedIn, and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
