You can continue your group's work from project 2 on one of these medical devices and tissue-engineered products and the medical conditions they treat:
The Project summary outline should include:
Incorporating some multimedia may be of interest to your audience demonstrating how the device functions, what it look like, etc.
Submit by February 25 the following information:
In order to work on this project, you are basically writing a business plan to develop the medical device or tissue-engineered product that your group is working on in a new independent start up company that will address the following questions:
Library Assistance is available by appointments February 23- March 1, 2021 and by special appointment by contacting Engineering Librarian - PLEASE REGISTER AT LEAST 4 HOURS IN ADVANCE. Multiple sections can be scheduled at the same time for the same device and can be made at https://tinyurl.com/ybxo5f2e
Each group is also encouraged to rehearse its presentation by holding practice sessions via Zoom or another platform that works for all group members
The project assignment requires that by February 25 each group (same groups as Project 2) will submit the following information:
Choice of medical device or tissue -engineering product:
Then you will address the following components as you develop a business plan for your product:
Then there are two parts after you determine which device topic to pursue and what each member's new job (leader/manager, marketing, device design, R&D staff, regulatory officer (FDA or equivalent in international/global context) manufacturing, accountant, & presentation editor will be:
The jobs to be performed are noted below - choose new roles than you have performed for previous projects and again everyone should be involved in research:
Resources: The resources listed below include databases - consider what your search strategy should be and make sure that after reading the abstract that you use the UC eLinks to determine if the journal article is available
Other resources follow and you should also consult sources on the Project 2 tab:
Finding out what the demographic needs are for certain conditions is critical for this assignment. We have many tools for this:
Diabetic Foot Ulcer Data, - From American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, 2019
Nemours Foundation - dedicated to the health and wellbeing of children
Shriners Hospitals for Children - pediatric set of specialized hospitals dedicated to burns, wound care and other medical needs of children
rns, wound care and other medical needs of children
Heart Disease & Stroke Statistics, 2019 Update from American College of Cardiology
Heart Disease, Stroke, and Research Statistics at a Glance, 2019 from AHA with Summary
Cardiac Procedures and Surgeries - Data from the AHA
Society of Thoracic Surgeons Adult Cardiac Surgery Database 2018 Update on Outcomes and Quality - January 2018 (published by Elsevier, don't have access to 2019+ articles)
Data & Statistics from the CDC - not always at the disease level needed
Facts & Statistics for Sports Injuries - from National Safety Council, 2017
Sports Injury Statistics (Johns Hopkins University)
ACL Injury Statistics:
Human Wounds and its Burdens - OA Article covers wound care statistics are not always reported; however diabetes related foot ulcers are covered in the literature or in promotional literature, market reports or presentations from the American College of Physicians
The outline of the presentation (remember only 15 min including questions) should include:
Goal is no more than 1 slide per minute so total slidedeck should contain 10-12 slides in total.
Remember, less text may be more content if visually illustrated well. Anticipate questions from audience and prepare additional slides that may address those issues.
Also, consider taking advantage of Zoom to rehearse your presentation.
For specific incidence rates per population either domestically and globally or in a particular country, consider researching the specific trust or sponsorship organization like for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) contact the MS Trust
Depending on the materials, where the product will be manufactured, packaged, the distribution channels, each of these variables and others will contribute to the ultimate pricing of the device and whether it can be used in different parts of the world due to affordability. These options may help you come up with a pricing formula:
1. Heart Valves - BCC has a new report on Transcatheter Treatment: Procedures and Heart Valve Market (March 2021) - Use VPN
2. Google the FDA Guidance Document, USFDA-CDRH Draft Guidance Document for Heart Valves Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) and Premarket Approval (PMA) Applications
3. From Frost and Sullivant - see Report, "Innovations in Implantables, Imagine Systems and Digital Medical Device Platforms from 27 February 2020 on Transcatheter Valve Replacement System to Treat Mitral and Tricuspid Regurgitation"
4. From Frost & Sullivan see 2009 report on "The Next major Medical Device Blockbuster: Transcatheter Valves"
2. For groups working on external fixators, especially for fractures of the Tibia bone, this JHU Medical report on Tibia and Fibula Fractures may be helpful.
For anything having to do with ACL tears or conditions, make sure that you specify if this is a sports injury or from osteoarthritis or another condition to compromised the ACL.
