Nitinol Medical Devices Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Nitinol a metal alloy is composed of with similar atomic percentages of nickel and titanium. There is an increase in the usage of nitinol devices due to the presence of two important properties namely superelasticity and shape memory. Thus, these properties of nitinol helps its it return to the original shape when heated at predetermined temperature. Since 1980’s the thermo-mechanical and biocompatibility characteristics of the material has expanded its usage across many medical and surgical specialties.  Due to its favorable characteristics usage of nitinol...

The activity of catching fishes including other seafood particularly for commercial profit is known as commercial fishing. Commercial fishing often requires rendering further into the ocean in difficult conditions.  Commercial fishing conducted on a large scale is known as industrial fishing. Tuna, Carp, Cord, Shrimp, Salmon, Calms, and Squids are harvested by commercial fishermen. Different methods are adopted for commercial fishing such as large nets, line and pole, traps or pots or trolling with single lines. Commercial fishing varies from organization to organization. It may...
Multi-Parameter Patient Monitoring Equipment Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Multiparameter patient monitors are referred as monitoring systems that measure and display numerical data and waveforms for patient. These are parameters obtained through monitoring systems used for the diagnosis and treatment of patients in various healthcare departments. These monitoring devices are used to display signals of various vital signs such as respiratory rate, heart rate, temperature, ECG, blood pressure and others. These devices work by converting electrical signals into readable form that is shown on the monitors display. Global multiparameter patient...
