The medtech wearables space is an incredibly exciting example of healthcare innovation that’s moving directly into the hands of patients. However, due to a lack of a comprehensive design period for many devices, high abandon rates among users is significant. How Needs Characterization Helps OEMs Win the Wearables Race highlights the value of needs characterization in the development of wearables and how it can help result in development success.
Advanced lithium battery technology is powering the development of a new generation of medical devices. These products are becoming increasingly sophisticated, feature-rich, and miniaturized, necessitating the use of the lithium options. Empowering Medical Technology highlights a number of battery solutions and offers the outcome of a real world case application.
Simulation is something with which many people are familiar, whether from video games, occupational training, or movies. However, it’s not often thought of as being involved with the development of medical device technology. A collaborative effort is hoping to change that. Heart Simulation to Spur Innovation highlights the creation of a simulated human heart to test designs for cardiac treatment innovations.
More and more medical devices are shrinking, but the processes to enable this can be quite sophisticated. Making It Smaller Isn’t so Simple brought the topic of miniaturization to the Roundtable for further insight.
