The recent edition of MEDICA, the biggest trade fair in the world for the medial technologies sector, has exceeded all expectations. Belgian companies were also present and showed their innovations. Here we're featuring the specific case of PeriKit, equipment for measuring the human body.

The 2021 edition of the MEDICA fair from 15 to 18 November in Düsseldorf has only just closed and we already have the results. The 2021 edition, which attracted 46,000 visitors from 150 countries and more than 3,500 exhibitors was the occasion for Belgian companies to show the whole world their unique and competitive knowhow. No fewer than 83 Flemish, Brussels and Walloon companies presented their latest innovations including many that had been developed in collaboration with Sirris.

Among these, the company JUST A NEW HEALTH presented as a world premiere, the launch of its equipment for measuring the human body: PeriKit.

The equipment, comprising four elements, has been under development with Sirris for more than two years and several patents have been filed in over 40 countries.

According to its inventor, Dr. Harfouche, launching the product at the fair was clearly a success, because "the device really revolutionises how bodies are measured. For the first time in medical history it combines accuracy, affordable cost and repeatability. This new methodology, validated in clinical trials, will help establish better diagnosis and better patient monitoring in surgeries or at home, while facilitating information sharing among health professionals."

"Collaborating with Sirris was key to this project. As a doctor, I didn't know the production methods and technologies to use for industrialising my project. I just had the idea for the product and Sirris helped me to realise it. This was real team work and I'm very grateful to them." (Harfouche)
