the 2015 IDSA Medical Design Conference—set for Oct. 21-22, 2015 at the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS)(link is external) in Tampa, FL. The focused conference will be conducted by a forum of experts on the practice of medical design and its impact on healthcare on a global scale.
We all know the costs associated with the design, development and use of medical devices are increasing—but what are we as a design community doing about it? Join the robust debate, experiential workshops and hands-on lab with the opportunity to play surgeon. We’ll discuss our abilities and challenges to innovate new devices and to improve the value of current, clinical therapies which are reliant on the devices we design and are becoming increasingly vital to the health and welfare of the global society. Industrial design has increasing influence over medical design, to open the opinion from design for usability—to design for delight.
