Currently, ergonomics is one of the top themes in industry. In this regard, VOLKSWAGEN is looking at the interaction between people and the items which they use to optimize the workplace design in order to protect the health of employees.
Therefore the production ergonomics department at VOLKSWAGEN uses the pliance® glove system from novel to identify high forces and pressure during manual vehicle manufacture. On the basis of the measurement data new aids have been developed so that the strain on assembly line workers was significantly reduced.
Please have a look at the video and documentation of VOLKSWAGEN!
Company ArangTeb, our representative in Iran, recently met a group of people from the Iranian Football Union. ArangTeb presented and demonstrated our emed® platform and pedar® in-shoe measurement system for the introduction in different fields of football. The target of the Iranian Football Union is using novel systems for talent scouting of football players and finding current problems in players feet in order to heal and prevent injuries.
From 15 to 18 May 2016, novel was represented at theIran Health Exhibition in Teheran for the first time. Our representative in Iran and Iraq, company ArangTeb, showed and explained the different novel load distribution measurement systems at the Bavarian joint exhibition booth. They were pleased to welcome research instructors from different universities as well as orthopaedics and rehabilitation physicians at their desk who were really interest in the novel product family.
Iran Health 2016 was a comprehensive trade fair in a pleasant atmosphere.
Please take a look at the pictures:
The new low-cost yet high quality emed-le system is now available. The emed®-le platform uses the same proven sensor technology with the unbeaten accuracy of all the emed® systems.
It is delivered with the comprehensive and easy to use emed® LE software and can be upgraded to include wireless Bluetooth transmission to the computer as well as a rechargeable battery power supply for field tests.
The emed®-le is compatible with nearly all of the novel professional software and novel databases.
The low price of EUR 4,980.00 (ex. VAT, FCA Munich) for the emed®-le system is advantageous for use in smaller clinics or orthopaedic and running shoe stores.
The 20th International Health Care Exhibition Exposanita took place from 18 to 21 May 2016 in Bologna, Italy. As in 2014 and 2012, novel were guests at the booth of our commercial partner Intimax, the company that distributes the novel systems in Italy. Every two years, this exhibition provides a platform for manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors wanting to enter the Italian market or to strengthen their presence on it.
This year's show was another successful event for novel. We caught up with our users in Italy, and we met many new potential customers. During a typical demonstration at the stand, the visitor had a chance to test the novel systems (emed®, pedar®, pliance®). Especially our pedar® in-shoe measurement system was of great interest for orthopaedic shoe makers and manufacturers to check their orthotics and shoes.
We would like to thank Intimax for their support and hospitality, and hope to share this experience in two years’ time, when the Exposanità will take place once again.
Functional-biomechanical and movement analytical aspects become more and more important in modern foot and ankle surgery. Meanwhile the instrumental gait and movement analysis is an essential part. The findings bring new, holistic treatment concepts.
Therefore, the focus of the 2nd Chiemgauer Symposium will be the conjunction of foot surgery with gait analysis concepts. The symposium will take place from 1 to 2 July 2016 in Rosenheim, Germany organized by the RoMed Clinic Rosenheim.
Well-known speakers from foot surgery and motion analysis will present the topics of high clinical relevance and timeliness. The program includes practical case demonstrations as well as exciting workshops. Dr. Axel Kalpen, CTO of novel GmbH, and Prof. Dr. Dieter Rosenbaum from the University Hospital Münster will undertake a workshop with the title “Pedopgraphy – Clinical Relevance”. The workshop will be held on 1st July, 5:45 pm and on 2nd July, 8:30 am (each 1 hour). We look forward to meeting you at one of these workshops!
The Foot International Congress will take place from 23 to 25 June 2016 in Berlin, Germany. It will be the first time that three scientific foot and ankle societies, i.e. the EFAS (European Foot and Ankle Society), DAF (German Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society) and i-FAB (International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics Society) bring together researchers, clinicians and industrial partners interested in all aspects of the foot and ankle.
The congress provides a platform for professionals of all disciplines dealing with foot and ankle surgery and research to interact with each other for exchange of expertise and potential collaboration both, in academia and in healthcare. The latest scientific and clinical findings will be presented by international researchers and clinicians to the foot and ankle biomechanics community to achieve a multi-disciplinary exchange of ideas amongst professionals from all professional backgrounds: Surgeons, scientists, physical therapists, orthosis and shoe makers, and industry.
novel will show and demonstrate its well-known load distribution measurement systems which are used for the measurement of the feet. We look forward to meeting you at our booth no. 27!

For the first time the GAMMA Congress was held from 26 to 27 February 2016 in Vienna, Austria. The Orthopeadic Spital Speising organized this special congress due to 20 years of their lab for gait and motion analysis. The focus was especially placed to motion and posture analysis and many researchers of different fields discussed the newest scientific aspects regarding specific diseases like stroke, MS, neuro movement disorders and orthopeadic problems. novel systems for load distribution measurement are often used for gait analysis and also combined with other gait analysis systems. Therefore we presented our emed platform system for barefoot measurements and our pedar system for measurements inside the shoe. Also our new pedoped system for measuring the normal forces between the plantar side of the foot and the shoe was demonstrated and found great approval by our visitors.

From 25 to 28 January 2016, the important Middle East exhibition and trade fair for the healthcare and dental industry ARAB HEALTH will once again take place at Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre. The 2016 exhibition will showcase more than 4,000 companies exhibiting their latest innovations to more than 130,000 healthcare professionals attending from 163 countries. Like every year, the novel team will present high quality load distribution measurement systems at the booth no. 5 C 58 which we will share with our distributor in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Egypt.
novel has participated in ARAB HEALTH since more than 10 years due to our important contributions in combating Diabetes. Saving the Diabetic foot is one of the major themes in most Arab countries, building on the high prevalence of Diabetes there. The goal for persons with Diabetes is to prevent localized high plantar pressures and to create a better pressure distribution under the foot. novel’s emed® platform measurement system has proven to be the most accurate pedography system in foot diagnostics and its outcomes are used to select the appropriate footwear and construct shoe inserts. In addition, our pedar® in-shoe measurement system provides detailed and accurate information on foot function as well as the functions of shoe and shoe insert; it is able to measure and quantify pressure relief from inserts in modified shoes. Our emed® and pedar® system are therefore the ideal combination to diagnose the foot and to monitor the function of footwear in order to prevent Diabetic ulceration and amputation.
We look forward to meeting you at this most important trade fair and exhibition and to discuss our newest systems with you!
