Health technology is Finland’s largest high-tech export sector

Finnish health technology expertise attracts interest from leading international medical technology companies.

Finns have particular expertise in developing user-friendly systems. Examples include equipment for anesthesia, laboratory sample processing, brain diagnostics and treatment, craniofacial imaging and dental care, as well as brain imaging and diagnostic mapping. Finnish professionals also possess strong expertise in complex signal processing technologies, materials technology, and mobile health solutions.

 

In the field of biomaterials for orthopedic implants, some of the most significant recent innovations have come from Finland’s research and development efforts. American and Chinese companies now have their orthopedic implant R&D operations in Finland. In 2012, a Dutch company acquired a significant breakthrough project developing composite implants for craniofacial bone reconstruction. Finland’s expertise in dental imaging is also world-renowned.
