A User's Perspective on Human-Centered Medical Device Design
Implantable therapeutic systems are designed to automate the treatment of a number of conditions for improved efficacy of patient therapy, enhanced compliance and reduced potential side-effects. This discussion focuses on the complex health system and its various groups of decision makers and payers, correct identification of target consumers for new devices, factors that influence decision making with respect to new technologies, and R&D and product-development challenges.
How Wearable Devices are Changing the Game in Healthcare
Powered by increasing consumer demand for self-monitoring of health issues, the use of wearable technologies designed to collect the data of users' personal health, from homecare and wearables for surgical procedures, is growing exponentially. Girish Sripathi, Wireless Engineer – Philips North America, Patient Monitoring, explores the ways in which the rapid stream of new technologies, including 5G, plays a significant role in the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of some chronic diseases and how miniaturization of electronics is enabling design of more reliable and adaptable wearables.
Next-gen Technologies: Miniaturization, Wearables and Implantables
Wearables and implantables have revolutionized medtech products, greatly increasing treatments that can be carried out outside of the clinical setting. Learn from subject matter experts Dr. Patrick Ganzer, principal research scientist, Consumer, Industrial and Medical Products, Battelle, and Dr. Jonathan Reeder, assistant professor, University of Oregon Knight Campus, who investigate how miniaturization has enabled new or improved options for wearable and implantable devices.
User Interfaces for Wearable Technologies - How Small Is Too Small?
Colton Turner explores the ever-shrinking size of wearable medical device technologies, including Smart Watch technology, and the impact on user safety and effectiveness. This presentation also examines best practices for user interface (UI) development, based upon proven human factors research.
