M2M Forum explores MEMS' connection to future of medical devices

USA: MEMS Industry Group (MIG), a global industry organization with more than 140 member-companies and partners, will welcome micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), medical industry and academic experts to Cambridge, Mass. for Member-to-Member (M2M) Forum® 2013, a conference on the MEMS connection to advancements in healthcare, medical and biomedical applications.

“Tiny, intelligent MEMS sensors—more popularly known for enhancing the user experience with smartphones, tablets and video game controllers—are improving medical technology in dramatic ways. From wearable and implantable drug-delivery systems to remote patient monitoring for diabetes and heart disease, medical researchers and technologists are collaborating on new applications that will improve patients’ health and quality of life in myriad ways,” said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group.

“This year we are bringing M2M Forum, our annual members’ technical conference, to Cambridge, the very heart of innovation in biomedical/medical research and technology. M2M Forum gives attendees a rare glimpse into the opportunities and challenges affecting the entire MEMS supply chain as they integrate MEMS into biomedical/medical devices.”
