5G in Medical Devices – Thematic Research

The medical devices industry stands to benefit enormously from the adoption of 5G technology, especially in sectors such as telehealth, remote surgery, wearable devices, and the transferring of large medical files.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, 5G’s potential to support telehealth services came to light. Telemedicine requires a network that can support real-time, high-quality videos. 5G-enabled sensors can be used for teleconferencing, allowing physicians to effectively monitor a patient’s vital signs and provide accurate and effective treatments during calls. The low latency of 5G also allows real-time remote patient monitoring with the streaming and analysis of patient data from an array of medical devices. 5G-enabled remote surgery is also being explored, where doctors can perform procedures from a remote location and surgical feedback can be sent to the surgeon far more rapidly than with earlier technology.
