Then how about Carsten Horn, the business development manager for maxon precision motors? Carsten gave a 10x Medical Device talk on product design and manufacturing considerations when you miniaturize your medical device.
I made the replay, slides, and transcript available for you: Click here.
Of course, miniaturization is one of the major trends in medical devices. Miniaturization, along with digitization, is a central theme ResMed’s go-to-market strategy. (See ResMed CEO Mick Farrell’s 10x keynote presentation.)
Why is miniaturization so big?
You see what I did there? 😄
Because, as Carsten notes, “The major driver is the patient. Smaller devices, especially ambulatory devices (drug pumps, patches, etc.), shouldn’t bother you to wear.”
“To make them comfortable, you need to make them extremely small,” he continued. “We are working on micro robots and miniature robots that work within the body and doing the surgery, not from the outside anymore. That will be the future, and you need to miniaturize for that.”
So if you might miniaturize, or just wish to stay current on this hot trend, give our summary a look.
Example: It was an honor to host so many thought-provoking speakers and guests at last week’s 10x for Design and Manufacturing event.
Another: I don’t know what it is about 10x Medical Device Conferences. Alumni come again and again, saying 10x delivers so much value in terms of content and connections.
In other words…
First up: 10x for SALES and MARKETING (call for speakers) on January 29 and 30 in Florida. (Early bird pricing now available.)
Then: The 10x Medical Device Conference (call for speakers) on May 15-16 in San Diego.
Then: 10x for Design and Manufacturing (call for speakers) in October in Minneapolis.
I’m giving you a whole year of notice – and before you’ve set your annual budget.
