Blood, Sweat & Tears III Workshop

October 17, 2016 - 2:08pm
Workshop/TrainingWednesday, November 2, 2016 to Thursday, November 3, 2016Arlington, Virginia http://www.nbmcworkshop.org/ BS&T III will link markets with manufacturing for wearable human monitoring devices – addressing both ends of the ecosystem. The forum will explore critical technical areas of discovery with product developers, and, collectively, show how quantitative monitoring leads to a healthier way of life. In addition, methods for reliably and consistent manufacturing of these devices will be addressed. This forum will bring together the players across the growing range of industries that are entering or advancing human monitoring applications, to: share pre-competitive ideas that may be applied to product development, assess roadblocks in bringing human monitoring products to market, and; form partnerships that have become key in overcoming obstacles to successful manufacturing and product development. Join the experts from NBMC who are at the cutting edge of product design and manufacturing techniques. Indeed, the success of previous BS&Ts was based on the unique membership of NBMC, where product and manufacturing-oriented engineers from industry, universities, and government labs form teams and pool resources (financial as well as technical) to accelerate human monitoring product development into manufacturing prototypes. Preliminary Agenda – More Speakers Confirming Daily Esther Sternberg Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine Prof. Dermot Diamond Dublin City University Ralf Lenigk GE Kirsten Koehler Johns Hopkins University Stephen Walley MEMS & Sensor Industry Group Lisa Friedersdorf NNCO Denis Barbini Universal Instruments Jason Heikenfeld University of Cincinnati Dr. Andrew Steckl University of Cincinnati Lloyd Whitman White House OSTP Product Categories: Medical & Environmental Monitors Human performance, medical and environmental monitors, even with their different market focuses, share many similarities when it comes to design, manufacturing and data management. All three areas share certain combinations of chemistries, physics, electronics and biometrics for assessing the needs of the market. Please share your work with the group. Human performance-monitoring devices are aimed at measuring the ability of persons to function as needed on a moment-to-moment basis. This category includes, among others: warfighters, drivers, athletes, industrial workers, and health-care providers. Human medical-monitoring devices measure the response to treatment, or assess the potential for harm to individuals who may be patients or healthy individuals in a hazardous situation, and includes: elderly individuals at home, patients during treatment and patients in recovery. Environmental monitoring devices measure the health and condition of many of the external aspects also important to our well-being. The category includes air, agriculture, water, food, and other aspects of our daily lives. How does the development of small, flexible, electronic systems add to the viability of these systems? Devices for any of these markets must not only be precise and accurate, but also reliable in operation, repeatable in performance, and reproducible through consistent manufacturing. New Trends in Product & Process Development NBMC is at the forefront of a new trend in industry and academia that focuses on partnerships to develop new pre-competitive manufacturing technology as a spur to industry growth and economic security. The triad of NBMC with its sister organizations FlexTech and NextFlex supports advanced technology and initial product development from pre-pilot to implementation in full production.
