MathWorks Roundtable: Developing Next Generation Safety Critical Medical Devices

July 27, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

  • This event has passed.


Safety is a very important consideration while designing and developing next generation Medical Devices as these devices are becoming more complex. Ensuring safe use of medical devices and Digital Health solutions for patients and care givers is an important challenge to overcome for designers and manufacturers to avoid any adverse situations and there are many approaches to address such challenges.

Join us for this special virtual event where we have experts from the Medical Device industry join us as panel members to share their approaches, lessons learnt and best practices while developing the next generation medical devices within the context of safety and compliance. We will directly hear from them regarding their experiences in building safe medical devices products and there will be an opportunity to ask questions directly to the panelists towards the end of the session.
