HSD will be providing a seminar at the BIOMEDevice conference on March 26, 2014. The goal of this creativity workshop is to provide guests with concrete methods and tools they can apply when designing new medical products. Our team will provide techniques that help break through normal patterns of thinking. HSD will provide an overview of Design Thinking and strategies that delegates can use to access their own innate creativity to drive innovation for “WICKED” problem solving. We will lead workshop exercises that will give attendees practice in creative thinking and visualization techniques.

HSD recently completed a multi-year collaboration with the US Army RDECOM Laboratory’s Edgewood Chemical Biological Center to develop a Next Generation Respiratory Protection System (NGRPS).
The NGRPS concept is an integrated headgear solution which uses scalable protection for the future warfighter.
The system allows scalable protection ranging from Air-Purifing Respirator (APR), Powered Air-Purifing Respirator (PAPR), and Closed-Circuit Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (CC SCBA) modes or operation.
The NGRPS provides an integrated headgear solution that allows for operational tailoring and does not require helmet removal for donning. The system includes a CB liner system that integrates the mounting of the ballistic helmet shell and CB Mask system allowing for a completely sealed environment.

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.

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.

BioNano Genomic’s Irys Platform has been selected as the Bronze winner in the In vitro diagnostic category of the 2013 Medical Design Excellence Awards competition. HSD and Sparton Medical collaborated with BioNano Genomics to design the Irys Instrument and Chip. The Irys Platform is an automated high-resolution single-molecule imager to analyze linearized single DNA molecules in IrysChip nanochannel arrays. The system allows the study of unique aspects of genomes that cannot currently be detected by other methods.
