This conference offers targeted information for engineers conceptualizing, designing, and manufacturing next-generation medical devices. Conference attendees will come away with solutions to problems they face in their jobs every day, along with inspiration to spur future innovations. MD&M offers five tracks covering all aspects of medical device design and manufacturing:
Medical Regulatory & Quality Requirements
Keeping current with medical regulatory and quality requirements is an essential foundation to all device design and manufacturing. This track keeps you current with existing, new, and upcoming FDA and EU medical standards and requirements, and analyzes the impact those will have to your design and manufacturing processes.
Medical Digital Design: UI/UX, Security & Human Factors
Medical devices must function extremely accurately, be usable in many situations by a wide variety of people, and make use of the latest data management tools. Strict guidelines for patient information security must also be met. This track will cover best practices for user interface and user experience design and planning for the requirements of safety, security, and data regulations.
Medical Device R&D & Implementation
Medical devices need to meet standards and regulatory requirements, security needs, and UI/UX best practices in a package that uses preferred and sustainable materials and manufacturing methods. The challenge is to research and develop creative designs that are comfortable and practical to use, and economical to manufacture. This track will look at ways to meet the latest medical device design challenges while also speeding the design and implementation process.
Innovation in Medical Manufacturing
Challenge drives innovation, bringing about novel new ways of accelerating medical manufacturing for a wide variety of products. This track will focus on the latest advancements in medical device manufacturing and how those can best be implemented in future product development.
3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing for Medical Devices
3D printing has proven to be a valuable tool for both clinical and research-based healthcare activities and is rapidly expanding into production applications. From speeding medical device R&D to enabling point-of-care manufacturing, the applications of 3D printing are growing rapidly. This track will explore the many applications for 3D printing and how it can improve your workflow now.
The MD&M Minneapolis Conference Advisory Board is composed of leading experts in medical device design and manufacturing.
