UK innovation showcased

Lord Darzi promotes UK healthcare innovation at Arab Health 2010

UK Business Ambassador, Lord Darzi, attended Arab Health 2010 to promote the UK's excellence in healthcare manufacture, services, technology and innovation. In addition to taking part in the opening ceremony, the former health minister demonstrated to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum the world's first fully articulating bionic hand developed from within the NHS in Scotland by Touch Bionics.

He also gave a keynote address to senior surgeons and clinicians and unveiled the first portable home haemodialysis machine designed by Uxbridge-based company, Kimal.

Arab Heath 2010, which is being held in Dubai from 25-28 January, is the largest and most prestigious medical trade fair in the Middle East, attended by over 55,000 visitors last year. It presents a platform for UK companies to showcase their world-leading healthcare technologies and highlight how they are transforming the lives of patients and clinicians across the globe.

"The UK medical technology sector has 2,771 companies generating £10.6bn of turnover. It has a large proportion of the world's most innovative medical technology SMEs, multinationals and leading R&D centres. It is at the forefront of healthcare innovation, and it gives me great pleasure to be able to promote such innovative technologies and solutions at Arab Health 2010," Lord Darzi said.
