SoCalBio Announces Lineup of Smart Wearable Device Companies to Present at 2nd Annual Digital Health Conference

The Southern California Biomedical Council (SoCalBio) today announced the lineup of companies that will present at its 2nd Annual Digital Conference, which will be held November 9 at Hotel Maya in Long Beach.

SoCalBio’s Digital Health Conference focuses on medical-grade smart wearables, implantables and related solutions from ventures across the Greater Los Angeles region. It highlights how such innovations are poised to transform the interaction between patients and healthcare providers. This year’s lineup of presenting companies offers smart devices for use in wellness and fitness, remote monitoring, disease management, elder care and hospital workflow optimization.

In addition to company presentations, the full-day conference will feature keynotes on the role of Los Angeles-area entrepreneurs, including medical device pioneer Alfred E. Mann, in creating the foundations for developing smart wearables such as Medtronic’s MiniMed 670G, the world's first hybrid closed-loop system for managing diabetes. Panelists will also share their insights on design trends and the role of wearable devices in clinical research, managing chronic disease and easing the burden of an aging population. Strategies for tackling a range of challenges, from regulation and reimbursement to cybersecurity and privacy, will also be addressed.
