Bringing Smart Solutions to Compamed 2019
Smart solutions for medical technology are front and center for the appearance of Raumedic at this year’s Compamed. Among other things, the company will present the prototype of a new tubing system for artificial respiration at its booth 8A/F28 from November 18 through 21.

Intelligent tubing system for artificial respiration
At the heart of this innovation is a two-piece plastic connector that joins the heated tubing with the respiratory mask. The reusable electronic base features a visual alarm function that activates as soon as the respiratory gas exceeds a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius. An integrated microcontroller also monitors the connected respiratory tubing so that it doesn’t exceed the prescribed usage duration of a maximum of seven days. The blue blinking LED light allows the clinic’s care staff to promptly determine from a distance that the disposable material needs to be replaced.
A digital calling card in the second component of the connector will store production-specific information in the future. “We are still working on the exact design of the disposable component, and of course we want to focus on the needs of the users as we do so,” says innovation manager Dr. Thomas Ruhland, who holds the reins of this development project at Raumedic.
Medical silicone components – not just for ophthalmology
Proof that silicone offers many advantages for medical applications due to its material properties can be found in several product examples from the medical technology company. At the Raumedic booth, visitors will be able to see tubing, syringe plungers and sealing elements made from silicone as well as silicone solutions for ophthalmology. Among its products for eye care, the company produces silicone sleeves, injectors for inserting intraocular lenses and tubing sets for laser-assisted cataract operations.
PVC-free plastic solutions on the rise
Against the backdrop that many manufacturers of medical devices are increasingly seeking out PVC alternatives, Raumedic has developed a range of PVC-free plastic solutions. For instance, a new coextruded tubing made from EVA and styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), and a TPE drip chamber are ideally suited for gravity infusion kits, as Dr. Ralf Ziembinski, Head of the Tubing Business Unit, explains. “This development can be used for the administration of parenteral nutrition or medication, as well as for transfusions,” he points out.
Tube sets for transplant medicine
Using the liver transplant device "Metra", from the British company OrganOx as an example, Raumedic will put its expertise in accessories for transplant medicine to the test. Visitors to the booth will be able to see firsthand how the device interacts with the complex tubing system from Raumedic.
Raumedic at Medica
The Helmbrechts-based company will also be represented at the medical fair Medica, taking place parallel to Compamed. At booth G42 in hall 11, the Clinic Business Team will present a range of products including the Neurovent measuring catheter, a device that can simultaneously measure intracranial pressure, the temperature and oxygen partial pressure inside the brain.

VariCoat® - The single-step process to coat wires
Plastic-coated wires, braids and fibers fulfill a wide range of medical purposes. They can be used as guides in minimally invasive surgery or as signal-transmitting electrodes for neuro-stimulation, for example. With VariCoat®, the medical technology manufacturer RAUMEDIC has developed a si...
Co-Extrusion – No Other Topic Has So Many Layers Multilayer tubing offers a modern, effective and practical solution for various medical applications. Such tubing offer a design solution for medical systems which require the use of inert material solutions for drug delivery applications or bon...
Set assemblies – Application example: Colpotransilluminator with Vacuum Hose
The example of the Colpotransilluminator with a vacuum hose, which is used in a gynecological application, clearly illustrates the various RAUMEDIC processing techniques. The tubing set consists of various components that are produced in multiple production steps. The first step is the extrusion of th...
Silicone Pump Segments
Liquid Injection Molding (LIM) pump segments are very commonly used in enteral nutrition or pain management applications. High dosage accuracy represents an important criterion for today´s medical devices, hence pump segments made out of silicone must fulfill tightest tolerances. “Silicone Intelligence In...
