Each day there are thousands of medical device ideas that are lost in the ether as the costly and convoluted pathway of medical device design pushes most away. The abandonment of numerous potentially life-saving devices results in an incalculable loss. The digital age has removed many barriers to device design and has enabled one to go from idea to genesis rapidly and cost-effectively. This lecture will illustrate how one can advance from an idea to a tangible device. I will demonstrate how one can articulate a medical device into a sketch, convert this sketch to a three-dimensional design, and from this design to a functional prototype. From this presentation, you will be able to progress your next multimillion-dollar idea from a napkin sketch to a tangible product.
Explain the process of bringing medical device ideas on paper to actual physical products.
Discuss barriers individuals face with the creation of medical device prototyping in detail.
Provide clear and concise steps of medical device creation from start to finish.
