Bringing Bionics to Life

Program Description
Bionics is an active electro/mechanical subset of medical devices that replace biologic function.  Bionics has already transformed ability and redefined normal for many people effected by illness, injury, deformity or aging.  For decades to come, bionics will:

  • Expand in the variety of systems they replace,
  • Improve in the functional ability they provide, and
  • Be welcomed by healthcare systems due to their justified cost efficacy.

All innovations experience unique business challenges.  Bionic challenges include:

  • High expectations for those in need,
  • Costs an order of magnitude higher than existing alternatives, and
  • Medical channels that may be unprepared for step changes in innovation.

This evening’s speakers will share the learnings from successes and failures of such challenges within three business aspects of bionics:

  • Sales and support of the mature sensory bionic ear market
  • Product development of the early commercial motor bionic market
  • Funding dynamics of new orphan bionic markets

Who Should Attend

The presentation will be relevant to people who use, clinicians who prescribe, academics who study, businesspeople who innovate, and advocates who promote bionics.  Examples of bionic products will either be used by this evening’s presenters, or brought to the meeting for exploration. 



[Re-scheduled from August 6]

Medical Device Workshop: Working Together – Keeping Informed

Program Description
The Medical Development Group (MDG) is collaborating with the FDA New England District Office in presenting a half day seminar that will address the following:

  • Doing Business in a Regulated Industry - Preparing for an FDA Review, with an overview of this important activity together with presentations from FDA Compliance Officers on Quality System Inspection Technique (QSIT) Inspections; Complaint Handling and What You Need to Know about Recalls.
  • Meeting FDA Guidelines in Implementing Unique Device Identification (UDI) which will be in effect for Class III products beginning on Sept. 24, 2014, with Class II and Class I implementations required over the next several years.
  • Issues in addressing Medical Device Counterfeit Parts. This is a growing and serious problem, particularly as supply chains grow longer and more complex.

The FDA Review Session will be conducted by FDA Management and Compliance Officers from the New England district offices. The Counterfeiting and UDI sessions will use experts from MDG.

Who Should Attend

The seminar is targeted at medical device and life sciences companies in the New England area. Space is limited so early registration is strongly recommended.
