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.
Material Selection for Medical Devices
Selecting the right materials and developing a robust material strategy is not only crucial to the device design and function, but it can also help streamline and accelerate the development process. Depending on the application, device classification, design requirements, material properties, novel material advances and sourcing, the material selection process is a key consideration. Join Asmita Khanolkar, senior director, Cambridge Pharma, SMC, as she looks at several important factors to consider for a wholistic material selection evaluation.
