6G Health – The project for future technology in medical devices

cetecom advanced is taking part in this innovative research project together with 18 other companies.

We are at the beginning of an exciting era in the world of medical technology, a sector that is characterized by its diversity and innovative strength. As the technologies in medical devices continue to develop and become more powerful, new horizons are opening up for their use in a wide variety of situations and environments.

Over the next three years, cetecom advanced will be taking part in the innovative 6G Health research project – funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) – together with 18 other renowned companies. This project will investigate the development of the next generation of wireless communication in the medical technology and healthcare sector and its potential applications.

This project brings together companies and organizations in communications engineering and medical technology to enable tailored technology developments in the field of 6G wireless technology.

The 6G Health project focuses on the development of sixth-generation (6G) wireless networks. Due to its scalability in terms of bandwidth, range, energy efficiency and reliability, this technology offers a breeding ground for a wide range of applications for the healthcare sector, e.g. for the purpose of:

  • Wireless communication between medical devices
  • Faster and more accurate diagnosis
  • More efficient monitoring of patients
  • High-quality video and audio transmission of health data in real time, regardless of location
  • Creating access to healthcare in remote areas and for people with limited mobility

Dr. Matthias Flieger, head of our certification department, is representing cetecom advanced as project manager with the support of Dr. Nina Müller, Certification Manager in his team in this promising project, which is being carried out together with renowned partners from research, development and the service sector.

One of the main focuses of cetecom advanced’s activities is the development of compliance strategies for the subsequent market approval of innovative medical devices. At the current stage of the project, Dr. Matthias Flieger and Dr. Nina Müller are aiming for general acceptance of medical testing standards for wireless medical products. In collaboration with all project partners, the plan is to create a basis for a standardization recommendation that will ultimately provide manufacturers with planning security when introducing products.

The 6G Health project demonstrates the potential of 6G in the healthcare sector and paves the way for holistic optimization of healthcare across patients, healthcare staff and processes.

We are delighted to be part of this exciting project and look forward to taking the next steps together to discover and enable a new generation of mobile communication for the medical and healthcare sector.
