A bandage-sized heart monitor, an extracorporeal blood pump that mimics the human heart, and a heart valve that can grow with a child were among the six winners of a contest in Philadelphia for innovative pediatric cardiovascular devices.
The Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium organized by the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children’s National Health System awarded each winner $25,000 and advisory services from the Sheikh Zayed Institute’s innovation resource network. The symposium holds this contest annually to encourage the development of devices that address significant unmet needs in children’s healthcare. It is a joint effort with this week’s The MedTech Conference powered by AdvaMed.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
