With another year comes another round of work on the part of medical device developers to introduce new robotic devices into hospitals, clinics, operating rooms, and patients’ homes. Clinicians want to focus on human interaction, their relationship with patients, and developing new ways of practicing medicine. Patients want access to care and the autonomy to do the things they normally do. With that in mind, this session will look at the iterative process for developing these robotic tools.

Topics covered include:
  • Creating a workstream for robotic development and commercialization
  • Designing for manufacturability and user adoption
  • Lessons learned from robotic companies making an impact
