The field of technical innovation for medical devices in France is made of hundreds of startup, small and medium companies. But not big ones yet.
« Medium companies are today’s France real champions (like Vygon), and we also have very innovative small companies (like Eos Imaging or Mauna Kea Technologies)», tells Florent Surugue, SMEs and economic development manager at Snitem in this interview with Business France Radio.
Founded in 1987, Snitem is the first professional organisation representing the French medical devices and technological innovation market, carrying between 85 and 100% of the market in terms of turnover, bringing all together more than 375 companies, defending their interests on the market and helping them develop abroad.
« This market is mostly made of small and medium companies (89% of companies are under 250 people within the members of Snitem) », as Florent Surugue recalls in this interview. And his dream is to see these startups grow into small then medium than large businesses.
How could they do that? French companies’ main assets are their capacity «to develop very innovative products » and Florent Surugue is convinced that they « have the ability to show that they can create a strong value » to the French and global market. But according to him, the French market is very hard to enter right now due to strong barriers in terms of market access and these startups should start looking for a development abroad very soon in their development process.

The SYMCAD III is unique in the market of scanners using depth sensors as it provides a realistic representation of the human body and makes it possible to visually detect static markers such as stickers and labels. Interactive tools take specific measurements in relation to different body shapes. SYMCAD III automatically analyzes body shape and body posture.
Telmat has developed two different 3D solutions depending on their use: SYMCAD III – C "Cabin version" and SYMCAD III – T "Transportable version".
SYMCAD III – C is particularly well suited to taking measurements in stores and can be fitted with an extension to allow customers to undress. This solution works particularly well in the context of supplying professional clothing or uniforms; between 40 to 50 people an hour can be measured.
It can be set up and operated by the client as the solution does not require any specialized knowledge or training. SYMCAD III makes it possible to offer customers made-to-measure, comfortable and elegant garments for the price of off-the-peg garments. User-friendly, self-operating and fun to use, SYMCAD vocally guides customers as soon as they enter the booth. The client is welcomed in a pleasant atmosphere. The measurements are taken in soft lighting. The color of the clients underclothes and skin color in no way affect the measurements.
The new SYMCAD III solution boasts several technical benefits. The solutions depth sensors use optical triangulation (near-infrared light - NIR) to take the measurements. The solution also employs cutting-edge technology to eliminate electronic and optical interference. This results in an accuracy rate well below 1%. The reconstruction of the human body is realistic with virtually no noise or inaccuracies.
The floor space measures 3.3m². Ultra-rapid measurement acquisition time: 1 second for a 10-sensor set-up and 1.8 seconds for a 20-sensor set-up.
3D acquisition can be taken over 360°, because of the position of the sensors. Several measurement positions are possible. The accuracy of a cylinder with a circumference measuring 1.60 m and with a height of 1.90 m is less than ± 0.15% or ± 1.5‰ (per thousand).
Measurement limits are: height 2.05 m, depth 0.8 m and width 1 m.
Over thirty made-to-measure clothing shops in Europe already use the Telmat body measurement system. SYMCAD III starts at €12,000.
