From concept to market: bringing a Medical device to life! 

Back in 2004, an idea for a medical device was born.  The concept was simple.  Develop a system that would provide patients who had experienced a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other neurological disorder the opportunity to practice walking safely and effectively.  The execution of this ‘simple’ concept was not quite so simple.  This seminar will take you on a journey of the birth and evolution of a medical device that is now being used by thousands of patients across the world.  Discussions on the clinical and therapeutic use, engineering challenges, the economic considerations, regulatory requirements, and business pitfalls will all be presented.  A roadmap for aspiring medical device entrepreneurs will be outlined with the hope that those who also have ‘simple’ concepts will be successful.
