23rd edition of Medicall Expo attracts 20-plus countries in Chennai

The 23rd edition of Medicall, a B2B hospital equipment expo, wrapped up its three-day programme held at the Chennai Trade Centre from 26th July to 28th July, 2019. This Medicall exhibition hosted more than 6,000 products from 20-plus countries, reports Neha Wagle.

Dr Manivannan S, Joint Managing Director Kauvery Hospital, in association with Medexpert Business Consultants Pvt Ltd, launched the 23rd edition of medical equipment trade fair, ‘Medicall’, scheduled from 26th July to 28th July at the Chennai Trade Center. The expo was inaugurated by Consul General at the German Consulate Karin Stoll. Medicall is an international show with exclusive hall for international companies from Germany, Japan, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, South Korea, Portugal, Italy, UK, and USA. More than 6,000 products from 20-plus countries were on display.

The trade fair focuses on all the needs of a hospital from surgical cotton to the latest imaging equipment and surgical tools. Around 18,000 medical professionals visited the expo.

While talking about the motivation behind starting this expo, Dr Manivannan said, “Small- and medium-sized hospital owners from tier-II and III cities cannot afford to have qualified purchase managers. Equipment companies also do not have adequate sale force to meet all these hospital owners. Since I have suffered and undergone the difficulty for my hospital, I thought Medicall would bring in all equipment manufacturers under one roof for all the needs of a hospital.”

Medicall Made in India Healthcare Innovation Awards is the most sought-after award because of its objective selection criteria and independent jury. Medicall encourages, supports and catalyses innovations in Medical equipment, Made in India. Medicall strongly believes in multidisciplinary approach in finding solutions in the healthcare industry. Medicall wanted clinicians, scientists, technocrats, entrepreneurs and researchers must work in lock step to produce innovations and hence this year Medicall came up with an innovative idea called ‘Medicall 100-Days Open Challenge’.

The 100-days open challenge was a curtain raiser primarily to excite the unsung heroes in the far corners of India, many a times, even semi literates with brilliant ideas and magical solutions which are pragmatic, affordable and simple. Medicall wants to showcase to the world these Eureka moments transforming healthcare! National Hub for Healthcare Instrumentation Development (NHHID) powered the Open Challenge by participating at all stages from ideation to selection. SRM Dental College, Ramapuram, Dr. Rajkumar K, Dr. Ramya R, Dr Swarnalakshmi R, Salivary Neuro Electro Stimulator won the Open Challenge 2019.
