Course overview

We are at the start of an industrial revolution in medical devices. The possibilities for medical devices to wirelessly connect, analyse and disseminate information as well as for controlling the device remotely are being realised. For example, there are already pacemakers that can be remotely monitored and programmed and blood glucose meters which stream data to a smart phone and the Internet. There are a myriad of wirelessly connected devices in development such as smart phone control nerve stimulation devices, devices which monitor adherence to a prescribed therapeutic regimen and devices with medical mobile apps.

The consumer health sector has led the way, with small wearable technologies that, collect data on activity rates, vital signs and provide the user with information on distance covered, calories burned and other information they may want. The data can be displayed on a mobile phone app and on a PC via the Internet.

The smart phone is a great enabler of this revolution, providing a handy tool with advanced and secure communication to vast sections of the population. However, in the medical device context smart phones are fraught with problems. There are numerous platforms and several operating systems. These tend to evolve much more rapidly than medical devices do. Verifying a mobile app across all of the evolving platforms and operating systems, to the satisfaction of regulatory agencies, presents a significant challenge.

Furthermore, a number of systems require development to:

  • Monetize the benefits associated with a connected medical device
  • Handle the data which a connected medical device will generate
  • Help the healthcare professional make use of a connected medical device
  • This conference will start to explore this exciting new area of medical device technology.
