Virtual User Centered Design – a new dawn?

With any product development, success lies in the sweet spot where need, commercial viability and technical enablement converge, but new project briefs can vary hugely in terms of their inception point. Some are rooted in a great idea, but give no thought to enablement. Others feature a novel technology but lack a commercial application.

User Centered Design navigates these diverse beginnings, but traditional User Centered Design has required a new approach in a Covid world. Is it possible that the accelerated need to unlock unmet needs in healthcare innovation in a virtual world has uncovered some new and more effective ways of doing User Centered Design?

Join us to find out more.

Here are some of the topics we will cover:

  • What is User Centered Design (UCD)?
  • Why is it important and how does it reduce product development risk
  • UCD Implementation & Good Practices
  • Developing an approach in a virtual world
  • Q&A

From the Artificial Heart to Artificial Intelligence: Protecting Your Technology Before It Is Gone

Artificial intelligence is rapidly transforming the world of medical devices. This surge in technical development has been met with a growing interest to protect those advances using intellectual property, including utility patents, design patents, and trade secrets. This DeviceTalk Tuesday session will address the key questions faced by innovators in this space, including the best strategies and opportunities for protecting AI-implemented inventions.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Why should you protect this technology?
  • What can be protected in the U.S.?
  • What areas of this technology are companies already protecting?
  • How to protect this technology?
  • How to use these protections to your advantage in different scenarios?

Precision Metal Parts: Procurement Made Easy

The global pandemic created several challenges within the manufacturing sector including supply base shortages, delays in production, and vendor/supplier closings. During times of crises, a simplified supply chain is essential for designing, producing, and delivering critical medical components to market on time and within budget so those on the frontlines can continue to save lives.

  • How a customer centric collaboration approach across the supply chain reduces lead-time and costs during a highly variable demand
  • How R&D collaborative planning optimizes design for manufacturability and creates cost savings and quick turnarounds
  • What manufacturing processes provide the tightest tolerances for critical medical parts including stamping/forming, electroforming, PCM, machining, assembly, etc.
  • How vertically integrating manufacturing partners and processes provides a variety of benefits, especially during a time of crisis
