Medical Device Development for Newbies

Voler System’s Walt Maclay will join three leading medical device developers on a panel discussion at the SV Hardware to Scale Meetup a panel discussion on “Medical Device Development for Newbies”.

May 24, 2018 in Mountain View

The free program, Medical Device Development for Newbies, additionally features Jennifer Ernst, CEO at Tivic Health, Jeffrey Christian, CEO of Phoenix DeVentures, and Howard Edelman, CEO of Advanced Resin Therapeutics and co-chair of the medical device and digital health screening committee of Life Science Angels.

Medical device development requires a deep understanding of the FDA regulatory process. The regulations mandate a comprehensive set of capabilities, including documentation, quality controls and risk management. While medical product development generally follows a standard development process, there are unique challenges that must be addressed in this highly regulated industry. Topics to be covered include:

  • Differences between an FDA regulated and a non-regulated product
  • Helpful advice for medical device newbies
  • Sharing the best approaches for funding
  • Navigating FDA regulations & risk management
  • Overcoming pitfalls that can delay or derail the development process
