EYE ON INNOVATION
Innovation drives successful companies, and med device and med tech firms are no exceptions. At Proto Labs, we’re proud to be a supplier for a number of these innovative companies and help them swiftly move medical and scientific advancements to the marketplace.
This med tech innovation will be on display next week (Dec. 7 and 8) at BIOMEDevice at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California. We’ll be there, too, in booth #707. We invite you to swing by our booth and say hello.
The conference will bring together nearly 3,000 industry professionals and more than 300 med tech suppliers. Keynotes, workshops, and other sessions will explore a stunning variety of topics: cybernetic technology, biocompatibility testing, bio-absorbable polymers, Industrial Internet of Things, mobile health, FDA regulations, wireless medical devices, intellectual property regarding med device development, and more.
We look forward to participating in this event, given that product developers at med tech companies turn to our prototyping and quick-turn production services to reduce design risk, accelerate development, and launch new products in less time.
A couple of recent examples of our med-related work include projects with Wicab, Inc., a Wisconsin company that’s developing and launching wearable technology for the blind; and the University of Houston, which is developing a powered exoskeleton (see prototype, pictured) that may help paraplegics walk again.
See you in San Jose!
