8 April 2024

Pioneering Partnerships in Healthcare and the First Ever Active Implant Assembly Set New Standards in MedTech

In an extraordinary leap forward for spinal cord injury therapies, Comate has been a key development partner for Onward Medical, propelling the realm of neurostimulator implants into the spotlight. This collaboration underscores our role in crafting groundbreaking solutions that significantly enhance patient autonomy and quality of life.

Julie Verlinden's journey from the brink, which you can read in detail in De Tijd, of despair to regaining her independence is a powerful testament to the transformative impact of the neurostimulator implant developed through this partnership. This technology, which has brought about a seismic shift in Verlinden's life, is a beacon of hope for countless others facing similar challenges.

Comate's commitment to driving innovation in the medical technology landscape is further exemplified by the successful organization of Europe's first-ever Active Implant Assembly. Held on March 20th of 2024, this landmark event convened 20 European leaders in the field, fostering a dynamic exchange of ideas and insights on the future of active implants. The assembly delved into critical discussions on the latest advancements in neuro-electronics, the challenges and complexities of introducing new technologies, and the vital patient needs driving innovation in neurosurgery.

As the hardware development partner for Onward Medical, Comate's role extends beyond engineering excellence; it embodies a visionary approach to addressing some of the most pressing challenges in healthcare. The partnership's success in developing the neurostimulator implant and the active engagement in critical industry dialogues at the Active Implant Assembly highlights Comate's dedication to not just participating in the medical technology sector but leading it towards a more innovative and patient-centered future.

The story of Julie Verlinden and the pioneering work showcased at the Active Implant Assembly are just the beginning. The future of healthcare is being reshaped, and we are happy that Comate is at the forefront of this exciting journey.
