Mega Medical participated in the 36th Korea International Medical & Hospital Equipment Show (KIMES 2021) which runs Mar. 18-21 to showcase self-developed new navigation system.
Since 1995, Mega Medical has been manufacturing medical devices for otorhinolaryngology for customers around the world, and has been providing total solutions in the field of otorhinolaryngology. Also, with the technology accumulated through long research and development, the company’s own equipment Navilloon-e (transfer balloon catheter) passed new medical technology test. It was used first time in Korea to perform eustachian tube balloon dilatation.
Lee Chi-hoon, Deputy General Manager of Mega Medical, introduced the company’s newly developed navigation system and said, “When performing sinusitis surgery, it shows the surgery area more accurately than endoscopy, reducing bleeding.” He then said, “Our product enables more accurate and safe surgery. We introduced it to 10 hospitals since last year.”
He then said, “Currently, we are exporting otorhinolaryngology treatment devices, medical imaging, respiratory treatment devices, nasal sprints, and transfer balloon catheters to hospitals, private clinics and global agencies. Mega Medical will bring about new changes in the field of otorhinolaryngology through intensive research and development and a more professional approach.”
