HealthTech innovation at Arab Health

Exciting innovation took centre stage at Arab Health’s UK pavilion – from live robotic surgery demonstrations to discussions with a NASA astronaut on how space technology can find its way into pioneering health applications.

The ABHI UK Pavilion was back in full force at Arab Health 2022 – the leading healthcare exhibition in the Middle East – with over 90 UK HealthTech companies showcasing the strengths of the sector. New to 2022, ABHI – the industry association for the health technology sector in the UK – and the Department for International Trade (DIT) combined programmes to host one central stand – the UK Pavilion stand at Arab Health. Together, the two organisations provided support for UK companies in their international strategies for the MENA markets.

Highlights included a series of live lectures, fireside chats from global leaders, and surgical simulations courtesy of some of the UK’s top surgeons, as well as an opening address by Simon Penney, Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for the Middle East and Her Majesty’s Consul General to Dubai, who discussed the role of HealthTech in advancing trade with the region.

On the ABHI’s state-of-the-art simulated operating theatre, a number of live surgical procedures were demonstrated, including a right RATS (robotic assisted thoracic surgery) lower lobectomy and lymph node dissection procedure, which was performed by Tom Routledge, a consultant thoracic surgeon at Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital in London
