057: Medical Devices in Minneapolis: Highlights from the Design of Medical Devices Conference

 

When visiting Minneapolis for the Design of Medical Devices conference, I saw how much the innovation cycle is at work in the medical device / medtech industry. I interviewed the lab supervisor from the Medical Devices Center along with several students as part of the student design showcase that took place there. I’ve got several events coming up soon and for the details, visit our home base here.

This conference was an overview of what’s happening in the world of medical devices in the Mid West. University of Minnesota is a key player in feeding the innovation cycle. If you go back and listen to my podcast with Dr. Art Erdman, you’ll find that University of Minnesota has quite the impressive Medical Devices Center in which the university hosts a unique fellowship program comprising of Ph.D’s, M.Ds, engineers, and MBA’s to move medical innovation forward. The center takes on 9-12 teams each year to work on projects and push them towards commercialization.

052: How to patent a medical invention: What to do first may surprise you.

The excitement of first starting out

Maybe you or your family member are facing a medical problem and you think of a solution. Maybe your research is promising and you want to bring it to the world. You imagine that you’ve developed your idea into a product and people all over the world are using it. They’re so thankful that you decided to do something with this idea.

You really can’t believe that the idea you have for a product doesn’t exist. It’s solving a real problem and it’s certainly made a difference in your life so why wouldn’t it make a difference in others lives? You move forward working on your idea and you become addicted to it in a way. All of your free time is spent on tweaking it or changing it so it works.
