Vizient on PPE, Vicarious on VR-aided robotics and let’s all hope for pumpernickel

This week’s episode of DeviceTalks Weekly is brought to you by the later V, as in Vizient and Vicarious Surgical.

Bharat Sundaram, COO and president of Vizient, will share how the healthcare supplier is strengthening the supply of PPE for hospitals. He’ll also reveal when the company expects to see US hospitals running at pre-Covid levels. Hint, it’ll be a while.

Adam Sachs, CEO of Vicarious Surgical, tells us how the company will put a new round of capital from high-powered investors including Bill Gates and Vinod Khosla to work in developing to develop a surgical system employing robotic and virtual reality technologies. How does the start-up expect to compete with the established leaders in the robotics space?

Co-host Chris Newmarker, executive editor, life sciences, will walk us through the five biggest newsmakers on the MassDevice site involving C.R. Bard, Theranos, and Medtronic. Number one may surprise you, but given the time, perhaps it shouldn’t.
