Sensor Technology In The Medical Arena, Now and In The Future

November 3, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT



Full Length

Highlights Preview


Many recent innovative medical devices are ‘wearables’, dramatically impacting healthcare as we go about our daily lives. Encompassing both regulated and consumer products, they increasingly enable health professionals to monitor user/wearer health status 24/7.
You will hear about:
  • How a startup negotiated the ever-complex processes of fund raising, medical device design, and contract manufacturer selection during COVID.
  • The challenges of embedding sensors in wearables using a holistic approach to designing new medical solutions.
  • How testing new technologies is done: what you need to know and what to expect when subjecting your product to the testing process.
