SHS Public – Femtech and its importance for Swiss healthcare

What role does Femtech play and will it play in the future? How is it possible to overcome the gender bias in healtcare? These and many more questions are to be discussed.

The topic of Femtech is on the rise and is one of the megatrends in the health sector. It refers to medical technologies and services for women (by women). New technical products that are tailored to the needs of the female part of the population are facing increased demand and have gained enormous importance. Viewing the male body as the norm can lead to misdiagnosis and bias in research, diagnostics and therapy.

How does healthcare and research deal with this? Is it possible to overcome this gender bias, and if so, how? Are only women eligible for this? And what role does Femtech play and will it play in the future?

These and many more questions are to be discussed.
