beMedTech is the Belgian federation of medical technology providers, representing over 200 member companies, accounting for 80% of the relevant market value. Members are classified into 4 product classes: in-vitro diagnostics, consumable goods, implants and medical equipment. This accounts for over 1.5m product references, a yearly combined turnover of 3.4 billion euros and around 18.000 jobs in Belgium.
Within beMedTech a patient-oriented discussion platform was created by both radiation-oncologists and relevant industrial partners. This organisation aims to increase the visibility of radiation oncology in Belgium in a pro-active, positive and constructive manner. Hence the name: “Belgian Radiotherapy Oncology Awareness and Visibility Organization”, or in short BRAVO.
