On the morning of February 8th, STMicroelectronics (ST) Global Executive Vice President and China President Cao Zhiping and his delegation visited Suzhou ViVest Medical Technology Co., Ltd. ViVest Chairman Zheng Jie warmly welcomed them. Zheng Jie led the group on a tour of the company's production workshop and provided a detailed introduction to ViVest's development, product capabilities, and solutions.
Zheng Jie mentioned that ViVesti's products, such as WCD and AED, belong to precision medical instruments, combining technology from five major areas: precision mechanics, sensing and detection, signal processing, biomedical, and information technology. This integration results in very high technological barriers. At the same time, AED, as an emergency rescue device, demands high standards for capacitor control, electrocardiogram accuracy, and product stability. He expressed his gratitude for ST's support and assistance in chip selection and supply for ViVest. He hopes that the two companies can further deepen their cooperation in the future, promote multidimensional and diversified collaboration, and contribute to the development of China's healthcare industry with their expertise.
Chairman of ViVest Medical Mr. Jie Zheng
ST President Cao Zhiping highly praised ViVest's development and had high expectations for their future cooperation. He mentioned that their past collaboration was very pleasant, and both parties have grown together during this process. ST will continue to support Weiwesi in technology innovation, solution development, and project applications.
