Medical Product Design That’s Saving Lives

If you’ve gone to the doctor recently or the hospital, you’re surrounded by medical professionals, of course, but there’s another layer of medical devices surrounding the entire experience. From diagnosing tools and drug delivery devices to surgical instruments and rehabilitation equipment — medical product design spans a wide range of functions and product typologies. Medical product design is unique from consumer products in the amount of regulatory oversight, and of course, these products can mean life or death for patients. Our guests are experts in medical devices. Scott Stropkay joins us as our guest co-host — Scott is the Co-Founder and Co-Leader of Essential Design, where he focuses on helping clients interpret technology to create breakthrough products and services. And we’re also joined by Richard Eisermann, Head of Design at Philips Connected Care, where they design a suite of medical products and tools for every level of the healthcare experience. Plus, we share our weekly dose of good design.
