Last year, the global medical device market reached $532.62 billion, according to Mordor Intelligence. Ukrainian engineers are involved in the projects of key players, which occupy almost 10% of the market. This share can be estimated at 50 billion US dollars*. Domestic specialists create more than a hundred software solutions of various levels. These include tracking and analyzing patient health applications, systems for transmitting, processing and storing medical data, and software for first aid devices.
“Creating such devices is a big responsibility. We are proud to talk about our medical projects because they affect the global healthcare industry and support the quality of life of people worldwide, says Ihor Kostiv, Junior Vice President of Engineering at GlobalLogic. — In the Kharkiv office, there was a map where a point lit up when someone in the world used our developments. We give the world our expertise, and the world appreciates it – all our medical projects have become more significant since the beginning of the war, and work on each of them continues”.
The system for monitoring the patient’s condition through the “cloud”
GlobalLogic engineers are working on developments that provide physicians with secure remote patient data access. So, according to the standard algorithm, doctors are forced to connect a unique device to a person and manually record his vital data from the devices. The development allows you to automatically collect data, transfer it to the cloud, and from there to the hospital’s medical system. The system for monitoring and recording vital signs via Bluetooth connects to medical equipment and transmits data to the doctor’s smartphone or tablet. Such a solution allows is relatively inexpensive and without replacing old equipment to optimize data collection and avoid errors during manual entry.
Ukrainian software used by 70% of the Western blood donation market
Also, Ukrainian engineers create equipment for blood donation, which is used by 70% of the Western market. Before starting the assistance, the medical worker uses the device to enter his unique identification number, the blood collection bag number, and the necessary parameters, including blood volume, timing, etc. The device shakes the blood during donation so that it does not coagulate and also controls the speed of blood collection – this allows you to monitor the donor’s condition and notify the medical worker in time. The equipment of Ukrainian engineers enables you to control the blood donation process and make it safer.
Automatic insulin delivery system for people with diabetes
Another development of Ukrainian IT specialists is an automatic insulin injection system. The device consists of a pump and a replaceable reservoir with medication inside. The system monitors the patient’s vital signs every 5 minutes and, if necessary, automatically injects the required amount of insulin into the body. The device can be adjusted according to the patient’s lifestyle, activity and diet.
In general, GlobalLogic engineers ensure the functioning of a complete ecosystem, including software, sensor equipment, a set of mobile applications for smartphones to manage the system, and a cloud solution for use by both individual users and professional medical institutions. Thanks to the development, a person does not need to make insulin injections independently.
Ukrainian engineers are also creating a device that conducts initial diagnostics of the patient’s body and determines the need for a defibrillator. This is important because, during the defibrillation procedure, a current with a voltage of 4000 to 7000 W passes through the human body – such action is traumatic, and therefore it is contraindicated to carry it out unless necessary. Over the past few years, engineers have been developing a new generation of defibrillators for special services, including the military and police. Such devices are intended for use in hard-to-reach places, for example, jumping from a helicopter or travelling in a military vehicle.
Implants for pain relief
GlobalLogic engineers are also developing applications that help interact with chronic pain therapy using implantable devices. Such a device is implanted in place and performs electrical stimulation of nerve endings, suppressing pain sensations. A person with an implant needs digital services that help him interact with the implant and doctors. Ukrainian engineers help digitize this process and make the interaction between doctor and patient as comfortable as possible. Thus, the application allows you to monitor the patient’s condition remotely and be in contact with the doctor. In the situation of COVID-19, such services make it possible to reduce the risks of diseases, speed up examinations and make them much more efficient.
To talk about the contribution of Ukrainian engineers, GlobalLogic launched the “Make an impact beyond the code” campaign. Its purpose is to talk about the true impact of software engineers. To celebrate the contribution of each developer, GlobalLogic offers to share the story of its own impact – it is important that as many people as possible in Ukraine and the world learn about the extremely important things that Ukrainian engineers create.
Note. Medical device market calculations are based on Mordor Intelligence data. Researchers estimate the medical device market to be worth $532.62 billion in 2021. GlobalLogic’s key customer market share is 9.58%. Therefore, the projects with which GlobalLogic engineers work can be estimated at 51.024996 billion US dollars.
