With the number of people aged 65 and older expected to more than double by mid-century, the rights and well-being of older people must be prioritized in order to achieve a sustainable future, the United Nations said in a new report recently released.
The World Social Report 2023 calls for concrete measures to support an aging global population in the face of rising pension and health care costs. According to a study published by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, population aging is the defining global trend of our time. Countries can benefit by promoting equality of opportunity from birth, so that everyone has the opportunity to age healthily.
"We can work together to address today's inequalities for the benefit of future generations, to address the challenges of population aging and to take advantage of the opportunities it presents," said Li Junhua, UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs.
In 2021, the global population of people aged 65 and older will be 761 million, a number that will increase to 1.6 billion by 2050. the population aged 80 and older is growing even faster. People are living longer due to improved health and medical care, increased access to education and lower fertility rates.
When the number of elderly people occupies a large proportion of the total population of society, concern for the life and health of the elderly is a topic for the whole society. With the development of technology, modern medicine plays an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of common diseases in the elderly. In order to maintain the quality of life into old age, at the same time the demand for human spare parts and implants is increasing. Medical technology is a branch of medicine that combines the knowledge of physicians with the expertise of technicians and engineers to improve human health. It includes the manufacture of trauma implants, artificial joints and medical tools.
Because of the high demands and tight tolerances of metal parts in the medical industry, partners with manufacturing experience are needed to ensure consistent quality of the finished product. For example, through innovative grinding solutions, medical precision metal parts manufactured by Shenzhen Yujiaxin Tech Co., Ltd. ensure that medical surgical forceps maintain ultra-high stability during minimally invasive procedures, reducing the size of surgical wounds and ensuring the steady performance of the surgeon's professional abilities.
The demand for better and more durable products is steadily growing through the use of new materials in the manufacturing process. With numerous system solutions and proven experience, Shenzhen Yujiaxin Tech Co., Ltd. is a competent partner for medical device manufacturers and medical equipment manufacturers. With years of experience in working with medical institutions, we can also contribute to the health of the elderly population in the future.
