With the end of the calendar year upon us, you’ll be seeing top 10 lists for the year.
And while I have two links to share with you, I’m more interested to learn which innovations and medtech startups made the most impact for you this year?
Perhaps it’s something your company launched or improved. Maybe it’s something you worked on with a client or read about.
This discussion is your opportunity to let our medical device community learn more about it.

P.S. The 10x price in 2018 is half the 2017 rate. If you have use-or-lose dollars, go ahead and register before year-end at https://medgroup.biz/10x.
The main impact these things have for me these days is on my efforts to figure out what is going on with this industry. The startups that have had the most impact on me in recent years are those that have been touted as successful in the media by one measure or another, when I knew that the underlying reality was rather different. I will be interested to see how these devices look in another 5-10 years.
