Revolutionizing Pediatrics: Innovations in Medical Device Design & Development. A Pediatric Tech Talk Webinar with GCMI, June 21, 2023 – 12:00 p.m. Eastern
“Innovation in pediatric technologies that address unmet clinical needs lags behind innovation for adult populations in large part due to its relatively small market size and ROI (return on investment) prospects for industry, continuously changing anatomies of children, and limited populations for testing and clinical trials. These reasons are the essence of ‘why’ Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies is unique in its mission, vision, and position within an institution of higher education to solely focus on pediatric innovation.”
So state our colleagues at Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies. We also know activity sequence and process matters a great deal when it comes to de-risking new medical technologies and ultimately achieving regulatory approval for clinical use. This is why we place such emphasis on our own disciplined, capital efficient, phase-gated process and approach to medtech innovation.
GCMI has contributed to groundbreaking pediatric innovation including work on the first 3D printed tracheal implant in Georgia with Georgia Tech’s Scott Hollister and a nascent wearable stethoscope with CHOA’s Kevin Maher, MD and Georgia Tech’s Hong Yeo.
In a Pediatric Tech Talk Webinar on June 21, 2023 from 12:00 – 12:30 p.m. GCMI’s own Amy Leiter and Saylan Lukas, along with Georgia Tech Chief Engineer of Pediatric Technologies Leanne West, will unpack what researchers, investigators or clinicians with ideas for solutions to unmet clinical needs need to know about risk, regulatory, clinician collaboration, efficiency and efficacy in medtech design and development activities for new pediatric technologies.
“This webinar benefits industry professionals, healthcare providers, and aspiring innovators, offering valuable insights on innovation, commercialization, and working with hospitals. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with leaders as they work towards advancing pediatric healthcare worldwide.” – Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies
