20 May 2020 - Design controls for MedTech product development

At the heart of designing a medical device is the need to carefully manage the design process so that the final product meets the original needs and intended use. Design Control refers to the use of procedures and plans to control and record the development of a medical device. Design controls are often perceived as an annoying overhead. However, properly applied they lay the foundation for a smooth pathway to compliance and certification, as the CEO of Genesys Electronics Design explains in this presentation.

19 Apr 2020 - A conversation on industrial design for MedTech

From biocompatibility of materials through to branding your MedTech innovation, industrial designer play a critical role in the success of MedTech product development. Human-centred design informs the industrial design process, starting with deep insight as to how people will interact with the device and developing the core usability and mechanical concepts underpinning how the device will work. In this webinar we talk to John-Paul Daneel, Business Development Manager at Design and Industry.

2 Apr 2020 - MedTech Hypothetical: Developing an automatic ventilator

In this session of the NSW Active MedTech Community we collaborated with Venture Cafe Sydney to brainstorm what it would take to rapidly develop an Automatic Ventilator from scratch, in Australia. The discussion worked with real requirements for ventilators that have been published by governments at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. A plausible design was presented and a panel of experts were invited to make comment, along with the audience.
