Stefano Vicenzetto, Design Systems Engineer at Flex, shares his insights on how Circular Economy principles can be applied within the MedTech industry to reduce environmental impact by shifting away from the linear take, make and waste approach.
Timely firmware updates are only one part of the hardware-related security equation. Whether it’s a hematology analyzer, CT scanner or any other networked medical device, the ability to withstand as well as recover from a malicious attack begins with the contract manufacturer that builds the embedded system. Here are five questions to ask your hardware integrator to be sure that your devices are equipped with maximum protection both before and after delivery.
Researchers found that mechanical stress caused by implants leads immune cells to activate RAC2 and other proteins, which then summon additional immune cells, including types that can combine to attack a large invader. These findings may help improve the design and safety of implants.
Instructional materials help users grasp how to use a device safely. Renée Bailey, Certified Instructional Technologist (CIT), explains how effective instructional materials are vital for the medtech design process, and shares necessary considerations to produce instructions that are coherent, easy to understand and aligned with the human factors engineering process.
