Designing Reliable Medical Devices by Solving Common Interconnect Challenges

  • Thursday, December 13, 2018

Individuals take for granted everyday interactions with well-designed products and devices that save both time and aggravation. Well-designed products can eliminate overall confusion for the user. Every day, more medical devices are designed for portability and at home monitoring. A major initiative in the medical device industry is to reduce the workload on our already overworked medical professionals.

Medical device manufacturers must consider countless items when designing and manufacturing their final product, but unfortunately, connectors usually take a back seat to other more engaging topics.

Nicomatic has relationships with many of the top medical device manufacturers to help them determine the best connector solution for their specific application. In the medical market, connectors are unique to their specific application and one solution does not work across the board.

During this webinar, our featured speaker will review the most common interconnect challenges that medical device manufacturers come across during the design process, including:

Connectivity: Medical devices that are not designed to securely connect to hospital networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), or mobile patient monitoring equipment now have limited product lifecycles, as they are quickly being replaced by smarter, more connected technologies.

Flexibility: As devices become smaller and more portable, flexible component designs are critical to this achievement.

Environmental Resistance: Portable medical devices are exploding in popularity, however they are far more susceptible to mechanical damage from ingress, shock, and vibration than stationary equipment.

Join this webinar to learn why partnering with the right connector manufacturer is key, and what attributes to look for to ensure quality, on-time delivery and resource sustainability.
