SPOT TRACE  – new product launch

SPOT TRACE – new product launch

spot-trace1

Congratulations SPOT for the quick development and release of the new Trace theft alert tracking device.  Similar to the original SPOT tracking devices, Trace sends messages to communication satellites.  The messages are delivered to your phone or computer, allowing you to monitor your asset and track its GPS coordinates in near real-time via Google Maps™.

The design is compact, clean and discreet allowing the user to mount the Trace virtually anywhere and blend in seamlessly with its surroundings.  HSD is proud to have collaborated with the SPOT team on multiple programs throughout the past 5 years.

HSD had its first annual sailing outing on the Hudson River.  Leaving from Liberty Landing the staff enjoyed spectacular views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.  We were excited to be able to take time off from work to connect with one another through such an unforgettable experience!  Special thanks to our CTO for the generous use of the Jay 130. We welcome clients and friends to join us on our next sail.  Truly Spectacular.

Tor Alden, Principal of HS Design, to speak at the MedTech’s annual conference in Rochester NY October 8th, 2013. The conference provides a national forum to bring together world-class medical device designers, researchers, manufacturers, and the public sector to share perspectives and innovations in medical device design.

The main focus of the discussion is how the right environment can encourage innovation and new ideas and how companies can keep innovation alive and growing in their organization.  This panel explores how best to create a “curriculum” for innovation by creating academic and corporate environments that support it.

HSD has a long track record of working with leading academic institutions and corporate 500 firms.  Understanding the different environmental influences and goals of the groups is imperative to successful product outcomes.  To learn more about the MedTech conference click here.

Medical Design Excellence Award 2013 Winner – Bionano Genomics Irys System

Medical Design Excellence Award 2013 Winner – Bionano Genomics Irys System

HS Design was selected as a supplier to a winner for 2013 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) in the In Vitro Diagnostics category. The BioNano Genomics’ Irys Genomics Platform reveals genome architecture in its native state, thereby adding a completely new repertoire to the genomics tool kit. The Irys System allows researchers and clinicians to access meaningful biological information that can be disrupted or completely lost during sample analysis via next-generation sequencing or microarrays. Earlier and more effective disease diagnosis translates directly into significantly lower treatment costs, less invasive diagnostic procedures, and more effective and successful outcomes.
