Innovation in pediatric technologies that address unmet clinical needs lags behind innovation for adult populations in large part due to its relatively small market size and ROI (return on investment) prospects for industry, continuously changing anatomies of children, and limited populations for testing and clinical trials. These reasons are the essence of ‘why’ Georgia Tech Pediatric Technologies is unique in its mission, vision, and position within an institution of higher education to solely focus on pediatric innovation.
Activity sequence and process matters a great deal when it comes to de-risking new medical technologies and ultimately achieving regulatory approval for clinical use.
Our colleagues at Georgia Tech affiliate GCMI follow a proven, phase-gated medical technology design and development process that allows for a disciplined medical device design and product development approach for unmet clinical needs across the spectrum including pediatrics. They have contributed to multiple pediatric technology projects for CHOA and GT affiliated researchers and faculty including Omer Inan, Kevin Maher, Scott Hollister and others.
What do researchers, investigators or clinicians with ideas for solutions to unmet clinical needs need to know about risk, regulatory, efficiency and efficacy in medtech design and development activities for new pediatric technologies?
Learn from the experts: Amy Leiter, Executive Director of Strategy, GCMI, Saylan Lukas, Director of Design & Engineering, GCMI and Leanne West, Chief Engineer, Pediatric Technology, Georgia Tech in a GTPT Tech Talk Webinar on Wednesday, June 21, 2023 from 12:00 noon – 12:30 p.m. eastern. We encourage everyone to join and share the opportunity with your colleagues as well.
