- Critical Cleaning for Medical Device Design and ManufacturingThis presentation outlined the role that critical cleaning plays in simplifying, speeding up, and supporting the design and maintenance of medical devices. This is critical, as cleaning validation or cleaning verification needs a properly designed system in order to be in regulatory compliance in medical device manufacturing and reprocessing. Presented by Jeff Phillips, senior manager, Science & Marketing, Alconox Inc.
- New Implantable Sensors with No Electrical ConnectionsIn this presentation, the latest implantable sensor technology was reviewed. State-of-the-art sensors are wireless, battery-less, telemetry-less, and have no electrical connections. The sensors are tiny, inexpensive, and robust enough to withstand the challenging in vivo environment. They can be tuned to measure force, pressure, temperature, or a host of other physical parameters. Presented by Eric H. Ledet, associate professor, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
- Ensuring Medical Device Safety through Digital AuthenticationAuthentication of replacement medical equipment accessories can improve safety by preventing the use of incorrect or counterfeit equipment, and preventing the accidental reuse of disposable parts. Digital Authentication allows the accessory to be securely validated by the system and non-authentic accessories to be identified and removed from use. Presented by Jonathan Dillon, principal marketing engineer, Memory Products Division, Microchip Technology Inc.
- The Future of Ablation Catheter Technologies for Atrial FibrillationAblation catheters are a minimally invasive means of treating heart conditions, and are generally safer than open surgery, but it is hard to control the catheter accurately, so repeat surgery is often needed. This presentation discussed the latest miniature technology to be incorporated into catheters to assist the control of ablation procedures. Presented by Dr. Keith Turner, partner, Cambridge Design Partnership LLP
- Ease of Use, Ease of Training - The Great Design ChallengeEase of use and ease of training are two of the great challenges in medical equipment design. Modern medical equipment has new features beyond what it had before. Some new features are what clinicians really need, but some are way beyond that. When new features lead to complexity of use and require extensive training, designers have missed the mark. Presented by Dr. James H. Philip, MEE MD CCE, anesthesiologist & director anesthesiology bioengineering, Brigham & Women's Hospital; associate professor, Harvard Med School
