Top 3 Medical Device Design and Development News and Blogs of the Week: March 5, 2017

Orange County medical device design & development company DeviceLab shares top news and blogs the week ending 3/5/2017.

DeviceLab is keenly interested in diverse aspects that relate to medical device design and development—in particular, mHealth and healthcare IoT.


When we find information particularly exceptional or interesting, we often share it on our @devicelab Twitter feed (which we encourage you to follow). This is a weekly post that shares the best medical device design and development information that we found from the previous week.


1. Gartner Identifies the Top 10 Internet of Things Technologies for 2017 and 2018

Each of the 10 IoT technologies merit their inclusion on the list, however, there were some recognizable patterns to what made the list. Arguably, those 10 IoT technologies could be put into four categories (with plenty of cross-category fluidity for several of them), which is interesting it illustrates how IoT is a system of discrete technologies.

  • Hardware
    • IoT Processors
  • Software
    • IoT Operating Systems
  • Networks
    • IoT Security
    • Low-Power, Short-Range IoT Networks
    • Low-Power, Wide-Area Networks
  • Platforms
    • IoT Analytics
    • IoT Device (Thing Management)
    • Event Stream Processing
    • IoT Platforms
    • IoT Standards and Ecosystems

If you further consider the list/categories in terms of medical IoT and mHealth devices, it’s not difficult to appreciate how their design and development will rely upon companies that have proven experience in each—especially with platforms like our Apollo™ wireless medical device platform. Draw your own conclusions about how well we feel we meet these criteria!


2. IoT Sensors Critical to Successful Health IT Infrastructure

This is noteworthy because if the previous “Top 10 Internet of Things Technologies” article had been written with a more narrow focus on medical and healthcare IoT, it would have likely included IoT sensors on the list, and for good reason! After all, as this article points out, the healthcare IoT market is projected to growth 26 percent by 2022, much of which will be driven by technologies that use IoT sensors.


3. Which Low Power IoT Network protocol will prevail? Bluetooth, LoRaWAN, NB-IoT, or SigFox

Similarly, this is noteworthy because the “Top 10 Internet of Things Technologies” did address low-power IoT networking—twice! What also makes this is interesting is the “comments” section creates almost as many answers and it does questions.



DeviceLab’s ideal balance of proven experience and cutting-edge ideas for medical device development includes mHealth/wireless medical device design services and medical software development. Contact us to learn how we can advance your medical IoT device from concept to commercialization!

Henry Bryson New Business Development Director at DeviceLab

Former IBM Sales Leader Striving to Position DeviceLab as ‘Choice Wireless Medical Device Design Firm’
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Aug. 19—DeviceLab Inc., an Orange County medical product design and product development company, today announced Henry Bryson as its new Director of Business Development.


Bryson brings extensive experience as a seasoned, top-performing sales expert to DeviceLab. He has demonstrated success with breaking into a diverse range of new markets, ranging from medical device engineering to enterprise software to business consulting—most recently as a software solutions Regional Sales Leader with IBM.


Prior to IBM, Bryson spent five years in the medical products and life sciences space as Director of Business Development with another medical product development firm, where his efforts resulted in swift and significant staffing and revenue growths. Earlier roles at Rapid Technologies, AIS and CGI/Deloitte Consulting provided additional opportunities to refine his talents.


Bryson believes that his proven backgrounds in medical products and software provides him with a preferred blend of expertise to advance DeviceLab’s wireless medical device design sales and marketing objectives.


After a decade of establishing itself as a premier medical device design company, DeviceLab more recently has been expanding its wireless medical devices capabilities, leveraging the company’s proficiencies in a spectrum of related medical device development technologies, including electronics, software and wireless/mobile. For instance, DeviceLab recently launched its Apollo™ Wireless Medical Device Platform, a state-of-the-art mobile medical device platform for healthcare Internet of Things (IoT) product development.


“My role has always been as the ‘voice of the customer’ to insure that their particular requirements are matched to complex solutions offered by the company,” said Bryson. “For medical device design customers, that means listening closely to find a perfect solution for their budgets and timelines, as well as their product’s forms, features and functionalities. I’m enthused because DeviceLab has very much proven to be able to satisfactorily move innovative medical device designs from concept to commercialization, and I look forward to liaising that process,” said Bryson.


“He has a proven track record and an excellent reputation,” said DeviceLab founder and CEO Dac Vu. “I am highly confident in Henry’s capabilities, both from my own previous experiences with him and feedback from customers.”


“DeviceLab has a well-established reputation in the medical device design marketplace, and I’m eager to be a part of its emergence in the rapidly evolving world of wireless medical devices,” said Bryson. “Ultimately, the goal is to become the choice firm for all segments of medical device engineering—especially wireless medical device design and development.”




A native of North Carolina, Bryson is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Bryson earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration. He has been in Southern California since 2000.
