There are many different healthcare needs, from booming populations to aging communities. At Trelleborg, our experts’ partner with you to understand your targets and develop the best solution to meet your needs and deliver high-quality, high-precision medical components and devices made from innovative polymer technology.
Improve healthcare mobility
Give people with long-term conditions, such as diabetes, improved lives with the latest mobile medical devices. Even if an illness is chronic, quality of life doesn’t have to be decreased if patients can handle their basic care themselves, in their homes. Innovative solutions from Trelleborg, developed in close cooperation with experts within healthcare & medicine, can greatly improve patients’ situation.
Improve your delivery systems
Your focus must always be on safety, whether drugs are delivered through traditional tubing and hose or leading-edge transdermal technology. The tremendous benefits of microneedle drug delivery include the reduced need for hypodermic injections. Although they’re effective, hypodermic needles can cause discomfort, bruising, and even hypersensitivity at the injection site. The effects are serious for patients requiring daily or weekly injections. A transdermal patch is virtually pain-free and can be self-administered, resulting in improved medication compliance. It also delivers an even flow of the active ingredient over an extended period, ranging from 24 hours to seven days.
Operations to accelerate your performance
Trelleborg has multiple operations on the leading edge of healthcare and medical engineering.
