What are all the steps to take into account when you’re at the verge of making a prototype medical device? What is the aim of prototyping and what are the prerequisites for a prototype? Will you be able to use a prototype for a clinical evaluation? What will you do when changes are going to be made to the prototype? Valid questions when you start prototyping and producing medical devices.
During this workshop you will learn how to set up a prototyping and production process for medical devices, based on your own case. You will, together with other attendees, set up the production process, with the emphasis on the requirements set by the ISO13485: 2016 and the MDR. We’ll elaborate on how to choose the best production partner and the facilities available to build a first prototype.
This knowledge is essential for everybody involved in or responsible for medical device development, both from a technology perspective as from a management perspective. Also it is relevant for everyone who is working on a medical device (prototype/product), such as engineers, researchers, projectleaders.

THE PURPOSE OF THE TECHMED SERIES
The goal of the TechMed Workshop Series ‘Remove the Barriers to Market Readiness’ is to offer and share knowledge and expertise. The substantive sessions are organized for researchers and (future) entrepreneurs in the medical device industry take place every month. It is the aim of the TechMed Series to bring medical innovations a TRL level further and closer to a successful market introduction. The fee for the workshop series must cover the costs, and are not for profit.
The TechMed Series "Remove the barriers to market readiness" is a one-year-course of workshops for (future) entrepreneurs and scientists in medical technology. The series covers the most important, but also most challenging topics required for the development and production of a safe, reliable and useful medical devices. Following the successes of the past years, we have updated the program to fit your needs on the road to market readiness. During the course of 1 year, 8 sessions are organized, taking place every month on an afternoon and focusing on one specific topic every session. During the sessions, you will work in groups to bring new knowledge to the test. There are no obligations, but we highly encourage you to bring your own case into the discussion! It is possible to attend the complete course, but also separate sessions.
