Tor Alden, Principal of HS Design, will be speaking at the 2014 IDSA North East District Conference on May 15th in NYC.
High technology medical and consumer medical start-ups are on the increase and often have difficulty raising capital in the early stages. Tor will discuss the various paths HSD assists their clients to connect with funding opportunities through collaborative relationships, strategic alliances and investment equity opportunities.
The conference will be held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place, New York, NY 10280. For more information regarding the conference click here.
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.
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.
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.
Join HSD and HSD’s Director of Design, Mike Herda, to discuss our firm’s transition to the ISO13485 standards and how its improved our process. Mike will present a HSD case study and discuss, from a designer’s perspective, the lessons learned during this transition. To register, click here.
HSD congratulates BioNano Genomics for its commercial rollout of the breakthrough Irys™ System, an intuitively designed genome mapping system that empowers genomics researchers with a new way of analyzing genomic DNA. Irys™ makes it possible to routinely and accurately detect genomic structural variation and to finish genome assemblies. HSD and Sparton Medical Systems collaborated on the design and engineering of the instrument and disposable cartridge. To learn more about this amazing technology, see the video here.
HSD is proud to have been part of the Vectra H1 hand held imaging system design and development. Completely self contained with integrated flash and ranging lights, it’s ready to go with minimal staff training. The system incorporates a wireless transmission to a workstation PC and photographs are captured directly into the patient chart.
