It is now official. Madrid will once again host the Orthopedics Fair “ORTO Medical Care”, to be held on March 8, 9 and 10, 2023 at the IFEMA fairgrounds. This will be the ninth edition of this meeting of the orthopedics sector that presents all the technological innovations available to improve the quality of life of millions of people with disabilities.
Among the great achievements that can be seen at the Orthopedics Fair “ORTO Medical Care” are the fact that walking again after an amputation or standing upright for those who have lost mobility, are already a reality.
This event is organized by the Spanish Federation of Orthotists and Prosthetists (FEDOP). In addition, there will be about a hundred exhibitors from almost a dozen countries around the world. They will present their products in the more than 9000 square meters of exhibition space that will be available at IFEMA. Around 13,000 professional visitors are expected to attend the Orthopedics Fair to learn about all the latest developments in the sector.
The type of technology that will be on display at the fair is really impressive, with the following:
Pattern-controlled prostheses that emulate the function of the limbs.
Standing chairs and standing frames for children to improve body development.
New manufacturing techniques
Latest advances in anti-scarce products
In addition, the organization says that there will be live demonstrations and workshops to understand the new functionalities that orthopedic users can already enjoy.
A Technical Scientific Congress on orthopedics
In this professional meeting, special importance is given to training, through the Technical Scientific Congress. For three days, the most important professionals in the orthopedics sector will come together to present new technologies, techniques and treatments. All with the same goal: to improve the service of Orthopedics.
The 2023 edition will be attended by Professor Hugh Herr, prestigious American researcher and engineer. It should be remembered that in 2016 he received the Princess of Asturias Award for Research and Technique. He is currently working on research into bionic limbs that emulate the function of natural limbs.
