Embracing Change: Managing Medical Devices that are Never Finished

Online Webinar

Aaron JosephSpeaker: Aaron Joseph, Principal Consultant, Sunstone Pilot, Inc.

Details: How do we manage upgrades to a new medical device after product launch? If you don’t expect to ever make changes to the product then this may not be a concern at all. However, if you’re developing software-intensive, connected devices or capital equipment, then this IS a big concern!

These types of medical devices need to be upgraded throughout their lifetimes. Therefore, the majority of development projects will likely be product upgrades, not new product development - and your quality system should be designed with this in mind.

Aaron will discuss the challenges of managing post-market changes to medical devices, the shortcomings of traditional quality system approaches, what is meant by "re-entrant design controls," and more!

"Organizational Culture - Creating an Organization That Doesn't Suck Your Will To Live"

Online Webinar

Speaker: Kimberly Wiefling, Co-Founder of Silicon Valley Alliances

Speaker: Kimberly Wiefling, Co-Founder of Silicon Valley Alliances

Details: An Organization’s DNA is the historical reason why groups of people behave the way they do. It is the genetic code at the root of these behaviors. You could spend 20 years, as Kimberly has, reading a pile of books, digging through data, experimenting, and exploring what makes for an effective company culture that produces predictable and repeatable results without sucking people’s will to live…or you could just implement the methods proven to work by years of statistically valid research!

A good place to start is your own personal commitment to absolute integrity in everything you say and do, and a passion for enabling others to achieve their greatest potential through your work together.

In this webinar, we'll explore how to engage your people in a personal journey to discover your organization’s unique identity, and then use that shared identity to create truly engaged employees and a truly cohesive team.

Ear-Worn Devices

Online Webinar

Gary Spittle – Founder & CEO, Sonical

Speaker: Gary Spittle – Founder & CEO, Sonical

Details: We use our ears to make sense of what is going on around us, to interact with other people, and to learn. And with the use of headphones, we can listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks, watch movies, make phone calls, and play games…

But in addition to listening to the world and listening to audio, we can also listen to our bodies! The ear is an incredibly rich source of information for our general health and wellness. We can gather metrics such as heart rate and heart-rate variability, oxygen level, motion, temperature, brain activity, voice metrics, and many other things. Regular monitoring of this data can provide essential insight and early warning signals, which can enable medical professionals to better diagnose and treat a variety of conditions.

The next generation of ear-worn devices is coming.

Adhesive Challenges with Wearables and IoT Devices

Voler Systems Events

Designing a medical device has many challenges. Creating wearable medical devices that stick to the skin is high on that list of challenges. For wearable devices to function as intended, they need to have a secure, reliable hold for the desired duration of use. Adhesives play a crucial role in ensuring that devices don’t fall off or injure the skin.

JoAnne Moody explores selecting adhesives for Wearable & IoT Devices in this session. Based on the increasing trend for devices attached to the skin, it is essential to consider adhesive selection early in the design phase. Key factors to consider include device design and application needs, such as wear time, wear location, sterilization, and biocompatibility. Skin adhesive development steps involve mockup prototypes and tests.

How to Successfully Bring a Product to Market

Events Header-2

Is your R&D on mute? Advances in component technology have enabled new design and development options for a host of medical and consumer medical devices.  Material science, miniaturization, higher capacities, and manufacturing process improvements all can contribute to better, faster, cheaper products. Wow!  But technology (and a great dev team) alone don’t ensure an on-time, on-budget launch nor market uptake.

 How do companies and entrepreneurs get ahead of the game, given equal access to new technologies?  Where and when in the development process should you double down your bets? How can you uberize your innovation, and for uptake among which segments and customers?

View the presentation and discussion on how to increase the odds of successfully bringing a product to market.
