Prof. Neumuth opens the MoVE kick-off meeting
Mid-October 2017, the kick-off meeting of the project Modular Validation Environment for Medical Device Networks (MoVE) with all project partners took place in Leipzig. MoVE is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for a period of 24 months and is coordinated by the OR.Net e.V. with Prof. Thomas Neumuth as project leader. In recent years, the integration and networking of medical devices have become indispensable elements of modern operating rooms. Currently the market is dominated by closed solutions of international producers. For small and medium-sized medical technology manufacturers the access to the market is limited.
The objective of MoVE is the development of methods which promote the approval as well as the certification process and risk management of open networked medical products in integrated OR-environments. With MoVE a simulated environment will be created to test the networking of medical devices and software components and to validate different parameters. After completion of the project German enterprises will be worldwide the first ones to realize open networking of medical devices in the OR.
