Exploring Innovative Technology

You’ll find the best cutting-edge technology and scientific advancements in patient care all in one location: the ATS 2019 Exhibit Hall.

The Exhibit Hall is the place where new products launch. It’s where you can view demonstrations of the latest, most innovative products and services for pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. And it’s where you may even try them out for yourself.

“I highly encourage all attendees to visit the Exhibit Hall! It’s full of exciting innovations, new products, demonstrations, and hands-on learning. There are even some virtual reality and multimedia experiences,” said ATS President Polly Parsons, MD, ATSF. “If you haven’t been in the Exhibit Hall lately, you’ll find that it’s really evolved. Try out a Guru Bar and be part of a dynamic discussion on current issues and challenges. Our PhD attendees will discover companies that support basic and cell research, and more than 15 patient groups are there to talk about the research needs of their respective diseases. There’s something for everyone in the ATS Exhibit Hall!”

Here are just a few of the companies displaying and demonstrating their new products.

Booth 3636
ERT is providing in-booth demonstrations for its recently launched respiratory device, SpiroSphere®, the industry’s first and only spirometer designed specifically for use in global clinical trials. SpiroSphere® enables pharmaceutical companies to improve clinical trial efficiencies and confidently evaluate the respiratory efficacy and safety of novel medical treatments during clinical development. 

Konica Minolta Healthcare
Booth 4636

Clinicians can observe the dynamic interaction of anatomical structures, such as tissue and bone, with physiological changes over time.

NeuWave/Johnson & Johnson
Booth 612
NeuWave is offering hands-on demonstrations and videos describing its new product: the NEUWAVE™ Flex Microwave Ablation System for endobronchial microwave ablation. The NEUWAVE™ Flex is the first cleared device in the U.S. that enables access to soft-tissue lesions via a flexible probe for precise, controlled ablations. It is a minimally invasive option for soft tissue lesions in the liver, kidney, and lung.
