In just a few years, our parents and children will be sitting at the kitchen table running their own genetic tests and auto-injecting their therapies. As medical instruments move from central labs and hospitals to remote clinics and home, new product development increasingly requires intuitive user-focused design while integrating ever more complex technology. From patient monitors to home diagnostic and therapeutic instruments, to ≥everyday≈ drug delivery, the rules are changing. Ms. Regan will discuss current issues surrounding medical product design during this paradigm shift, including:
Key trends contributing to the home migration of devices
Similarities and differences between medical and consumer electronics that impact development
Key teamwork success factors while developing complex medical technologies for the home
The role of US competitiveness in the new consumer medical device development era.
