We break a bone in our arm or leg and the ends of the broken bone knit themselves back together, healing in a couple months. But, what happens when we injure our brain?
As patient-centered care and mHealth have become driving forces in health care, digitally connected health technologies have emerged as a solution to engage patients and collect data. But patient and provider adoption of these devices can be a challenge.
Though neurostimulation procedures have been performed for decades, recently, the improved understanding of neural circuitry has led to a desire for a new generation of neuromodulation devices.
Have you ever accidently struck your thumb or finger with a hammer? What was your immediate reaction? I mean after the few choice expletives! Most, if not all of us, will grab and rub the impacted appendage. Why do we do this, and what does this have to do with a potential solution for the opioid crisis?
Advances in sensors, smartphones, communications, and analytics give developers new tools to build creative and powerful applications that promise to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.
As component sizes for medical devices shrink to micron size, conventional machining may not be the most efficient or consistent method for manufacturing. Learn why Micro-MIM is preferred for components with tight tolerances at high volumes.
Sustaining engineering enables the developer to plan ahead, getting the development and design of the device done right the first time, and smoothing the transition to manufacturing. KMC's executive director of engineering, Scott Leon, weighs in on the subject.
The business pain of switching suppliers, both in terms of costs and revalidation time, heightens the importance of making the right decision the first time.
Micromolding requires a high level of intimacy and attention to detail to be successful over the long run, so it’s important to work with micromolder with the capability, scalability, and sustainability to get a product from the design stage all the way to high-quality mass production.
