Tor Alden, of HS Design, to speak at the world’s premiere medical devices conference. 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.
Tor will be part of a panel on the collaborative nature of medical devices. Medical device design is inherently collaborative and increasingly important as development budgets are tight increasing the importance of developing the right device the first time. This panel discussion with industry leaders will discuss internal and external partnerships, the tools and processes which promote collaboration as well as challenges for effective interactions.
The University of Minnesota’s Medical Devices Center, part of the Institute for Engineering in Medicine, the College of Science and Engineering, and the Academic Health Center is presenting the 11th Annual Design of Medical Devices Conference.

Ambio Health, a healthcare technology company, announced the debut of an innovative, new, wireless Remote Health Monitoring System. The company demoed the Remote Health Monitoring product at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Digital Health Summit.
The Ambio Remote Health Monitoring System monitors weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels, and was built from the ground up to meet the needs of patients, their families, and healthcare and managed care providers.
The Ambio Remote Health Monitoring System costs significantly less than competing monitoring solutions, creating a more affordable option for consumers. Healthcare systems will also realize cost efficiencies as they deploy Ambio devices within large populations of chronic disease patients who are at high risk of hospitalization.
HSD assisted Ambio Health in the design and engineering of the consumer medical Gateway and wireless connectors through to manufacturing. The wireless connectors transmit the patients readings automatically to a Health Portal, providing tools for members and their care circle to help them stay healthy.
According to the PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Health Research Institute “Healthcare Unwired” report, 88% of physicians would like their patients to be able to track and/or monitor their health at home, with the greatest interest in monitoring weight, blood sugar and vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate respiratory rate).
