Orange County medical device design and development company DeviceLab will exhibit its wireless medical device and mHealth & healthcare IoT solutions at MDM 2017.
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Jan. 30—DeviceLab Inc., an Orange County medical device design and manufacturing company, today announced it will be an exhibitor at the 32nd Annual MD&M West Conference in Anaheim, California on February 7–9, 2017.
Described by organizers as the world’s largest collection of medical device manufacturers and suppliers, DeviceLab will be using the event as a prime opportunity to demonstrate its latest medical device design and development innovations, which most recently have focused on wireless medical devices, mHealth and healthcare IoT (Internet of Things).
Updated ‘Hospital Bed of the Future’ Features New Wireless and IoT Healthcare Solutions
The central focus of DeviceLab’s MDM 2017 exhibition booth will be its updated “hospital bed of the future” display first unveiled in 2016.
Created to demonstrate DeviceLab’s Apollo™ wireless medical device electronic systems platform, the original display featured a life-size male-form mannequin (nicknamed “Apollo”) with wireless medical sensors on an electronic examination table. The table’s touchscreen displays and monitors can simulate how multiple complementary technologies—including IoT, wearable medical sensors, RFID, wireless charging, digital signal processing and IO devices—can be seamlessly integrated.
This year, “Apollo” is joined by a female-form counterpart, “Athena,” that stands upright by the table. As with the “Apollo” mannequin, Athena is also fitted with wearable medical devices that further demonstrate DeviceLab’s acumen with developing mobile medical device technologies that reduce development costs and time, including:
- Bluetooth/Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) other mobile wireless technologies
- Cloud data storage and analytics
- iOS and Android smart phones, tablets and PCs
- Multiple electronics display technologies (LED, OLED)
- Server/client software for the Internet of Things (IoT)
- State of the arts components from Renesas, Microchip, Broadcom etc.
- Ultra low-power and self-powered sensor systems
- Wi-Fi connected appliances
“We are excited about introducing Athena to guests at our MDM 2017 booth,” said Vu. “Along with providing even more visual appeal to our Apollo platform display, she was effective in helping us engage in conversations about the incredible possibilities for wireless medical devices and healthcare IoT at the recent MDIF 2016 conference.”
Embracing the Future of Medical Device Software Development in the Age of Healthcare IoT
Medical device market analysts are predicting the global IoT in healthcare market will grow from $32 billion in 2015 to $163 billion by 2020. Vu said he has witnessed a tremendous uptick in new business from customers that want to develop wireless medical devices and healthcare IoT devices in the past few years.
Along with promoting the company’s capabilities in all modes of medical device design and development, Vu said the Apollo platform display supplements his company’s recent efforts to position itself as a seasoned company with an eye on the future—which he believes will be led by companies that have superior medical device software development capabilities.
“Much of the hardware and technology to make mHealth and healthcare IoT possible already exists—for instance, wireless sensors, touchscreens, Bluetooth and WiFi,” said Vu. “However, the challenge will be to develop applications and platforms that will enable healthcare IoT devices to fulfill their potential, which involves a host of discrete challenges like connectivity, security and UI/UX while requiring as little power as possible from the wireless medical device.”
For those reasons, Vu said the Apollo display perfectly captures the essence of his company’s history and future.
“For nearly two decades, we’ve successfully produced hundreds of projects that have relied upon and refined our expertise in electronic medical device development,” said Vu. “Creating the Apollo display involved all our teams—prototyping, mechanical, software, wireless, UI/UX and production—which relied up our proven processes and best practices in medical device design and development while also pushing the limits with our innovation and creativity.”
DeviceLab will be at booth 813 on February 7–8 from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and on February 9 from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
