Upcoming Sessions

To complement our series of regional DeviceTalks meetings, we’ve created DeviceTalks Tuesdays, a scheduled, appointment-based opportunity to bring together the medtech leaders and visionaries that typically take the stage. DeviceTalks Tuesdays is available where ever you’re getting the job done. Select one or more of the webcasts and complete the complimentary registration.

Manufacturing & Sourcing

Manufacturing Flexibility: Technology to Navigate Changing Environments

COVID-19 has significantly changed the life sciences manufacturing industry, which may never be the same. And specifically, it has exposed weaknesses in manufacturing, such as supply chain problems, managing a remote workforce and inability to scale for or pivot to high demand products. Paper-based processes impede manufacturers’ ability to adapt product development and manufacturing to high-demand areas. Forward thinking companies need to adopt the right technology now to ensure they can adapt to the current environment and prepare for the future.

Attendees will learn how going digital across the product life cycle will help manufacturers be more flexible going forward and mitigate the risk of disruption.

From Mind to Market: The Life Cycle of the Device

When taking a device from mind to market, you might have some ideas, processes and procedures in place, but it’s important to consider all possibilities. Knowing what may not work will bring you closer to knowing what will. Learn more while we explore the life cycle of the device.

Usability Challenges in Cutting-edge Medical Devices and Exoskeleton Robotics

As medical device and robotics technology mature and grow more capable they also become more complex, requiring focus on usability aspects from both a user experience (UX) design and regulatory perspective. These new applications, such as exoskeletons, demand a seamless interaction between the device and the user. That means designers and developers must improve utility while mitigating inherent risks.

This panel will explore how to approach UX design for medtech and how it should plug into a product development cycle leading to a 510(k) submission. We will share lessons learned from studying exoskeletons for military applications, and explain how they can be applied to medical/rehabilitative applications.

Here are some of the topics we’ll cover:

  • UX design principles for med devices
  • Recognizing UX requirements vs Product Requirements
  • Introduction to exoskeletons
  • Task analysis – matching use-cases to technology
  • Hazards analysis
  • Human Subjects Research
