In this webinar, we’ll start with the drivers behind the rush to ubiquitous connectivity and discuss a wide range of needs assessment and trade-offs ranging from usability to power consumption.
One size does not fit all. Engage with experts in connectivity technology and applications in drug delivery and medical devices to learn key considerations for successful connected device development.
The value of the IoT market specific to medical technology is expected to grow to $158 billion by 2022, according to Market Research Engine. Of that total, the connected medical devices segment used in drug delivery, patient monitoring, diagnosis or treatment of patients makes up roughly one-third of that market and is estimated to grow by $37 billion in the next five years. Connectivity technology is evolving at a record pace right alongside these devices. Matching the optimal connectivity technology to the connectivity needs, useful life, and desired cost profile of the device can help medical device companies ensure a successful product.
FDA recognized the need for an organized, risk-based approach with its “Radio Frequency Wireless Technology in Medical Devices” guidance. The selection of the right connectivity technology for a new medical device is indeed a critical activity that goes beyond the regulatory assessment and has ramifications at all design levels.
After attending this webinar you will:
- Understand FDA guidance on radio frequency wireless technology in medical devices
- Learn the drivers for selecting the right technologies
- Understand how to choose the right components: modules vs. discrete, off-the-shelf vs. custom
