Photo courtesy of http://studyclerk.com/ For most medical device innovators, prototyping is one of the most exciting times in product development. Seeing early design images and specs come to life in a physical way is highly satisfying and fun. But this excitement breeds temptation to bypass multiple elements that must precede prototyping if the team is…
“Best Practices for Transitioning from Design to Assembly in Medical Device Manufacturing.” – A recent feature from Assembly Magazine.
GCMI’s Sarah Cohen and Mike Fisher provided substantial insights for Assembly Magazine’s Austin Weber in a recent article, “Best Practices for Transitioning from Design to Assembly in Medical Device Manufacturing.”
The BOTLab team entered GCMI’s Accelerator program with a promising technology, clinical need and prototype. Dr. Darren Roblyer shared with us why the team is making this strategic course correction, learnings from BOTLabs’ time in GCMI’s Accelerator program and next steps.
Supporting the next generation of biomedical innovators at Georgia Tech – our Capstone Program Support Summary
In mid-November 2019, six student-led Georgia Tech Capstone teams put their medical device ideas to the test at GCMI. These are five of their stories.
Aspiring to create a brand new solution for patient aspiration during EGDs – GT Capstone Day at GCMI: Bullseye
Georgia Tech biomedical engineering students Oscar Gutierrez, Ahmed Alnamos, Nishani Kanthasamy and Sondos Alnamos make up the team ‘Bullseye’ for the Fall 2019 edition of the Capstone Program. Their device seeks to provide a solution for patients who are at risk of aspiration but do not otherwise require general anesthesia during Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EGD, procedures
Aprons of Shield set out to design a device that achieves full-body shielding from radiation for clinicians while still giving them the ability to use their hands without being weighed down by aprons or increasing exposure.
As the year comes to a close and many of us look forward to a holiday respite, I find myself full of enthusiasm having recently returned from Israel advancing our accelerator program with Rambam Health Center and participating in the mHEALTH Israel Women’s Meetup at Google for Startups Campus in Tel Aviv. We live in…
