Taiwan: The Future of Smart Tech
Although Taiwan is relatively small player in medical products relative to the United States, Japan, and Europe, it is a source of innovation. Taiwan’s innovators are striving to make healthcare more patient-centric. Winnoz Technology CEO and founder Joses Hsiung drew inspiration from his mother, who experienced pain and discomfort during regular blood tests. After years of research and development, Hsiung created Haiim, a small portable blood collection device collecting blood from the fingertip rather than a vein in the arm. The device uses vacuum suction to collect 150-500 microliters of blood, enough for crucial blood tests.
