Application of 3D Printing Technology for Medical Device Engineering
There are many desktop 3D printer offerings on the market, at reasonable price points, that can produce high quality, quick-turn parts perfect for many medical device engineer applications including component prototyping, fixturing and jigs, anatomical modeling, and more. Join John Foody, manufacturing engineer, Corvia Medical, as he provides examples of how their company has incorporated fused filament fabrication (FFF) and stereolithography (SLA) printers into their everyday workflow. Differences in these technologies are examined to highlight the strengths each technology offers for various projects of a medical device engineer.
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.
The Wave of Digital Health
Over the last five years, digital tech companies have turned their focus and investments to healthcare, from apps to wearables, and to digital health devices that are changing the future of healthcare. Join leading expert, Sandra Nagale, PhD, Director, Digital Health and Data Solutions at Boston Scientific, as she discusses digital health device innovation for healthcare, along with trends, challenges and opportunities for the future. Nagale provides examples of using wearable devices, sensors and data analytics in a proof-of-concept clinical study, and demonstrates leading technologies that enable these devices, such as the development of a highly sensitive predictive algorithm for heart failure events.
