Companies are now developing devices that work much like Star Trek’s Tricorder — the ultimate in noninvasive monitoring. Combined with a patient’s medical history, these devices rely on multiple sensors to make a quick and accurate assessment, diagnosing and monitoring illness with minimal interaction with the physician. Advances in sensors that are smart, wireless, and smaller than ever before are driving these innovations. Nanomaterials, such as graphene, are enabling the advancement of increasingly sophisticated sensors.
This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Medical Design Briefs explores the landscape of sensor technologies that are turning this sci-fi device into reality.
- The integration of sensors in devices
- The growing need for point-of-care biosensor devices
- Point-of-care biosensors in a waning COVID-19 pandemic
- Quality and regulatory requirements, design, miniaturization, and assembly of wearable/biosensors as medical devices
An audience Q&A will follow the technical presentation.
