Discussion to focus on navigating the complex medical device development process

The Office of Technology Development at Penn State Hershey will hold an interactive discussion with Eric Sugalski, founder of Boston Device, from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, in the Hershey Center for Applied Research, Room 1103.

Researchers and clinicians are responsible for many new device innovations in the marketplace. With deep insight into procedure challenges and existing device limitations, clinicians and researchers are well positioned to identify opportunities to improve the standard of care, but medical device development is complex. The development process is long and detailed, including defining regulatory pathways and documenting FDA-mandated design history to building functional prototypes.

Several examples of device developments will be discussed and used as case studies in describing the medical device development process. Topics will include evaluating an idea, building a prototype and collecting data to determine efficacy. Sugalski also will share resources that researchers and clinicians can leverage to build the value and impact of the technology.

Space is limited. Reserve a spot at http://bostondeviceinfosession.eventbrite.com/.
