As we wrap up our 4th blog post and head toward AACC2019 in Anaheim, CA we have a few more thoughts to share with you regarding “smarter healthcare”.  We are looking forward to continuing the conversation at the meeting so please reach out to us...

It’s thrilling to bring new materials and technologies to life in products that have a real impact. We’re creating new devices across the continua of discovery and development, diagnostics, drug delivery, and monitoring. And we are leveraging sophisticated data tools to make the devices themselves...

Once, the earth was flat…and disease was defined by the organ in which it was thought to originate…and (lest we forget)…cancer cells did not circulate. Only some of this is ancient history. A few weeks ago over coffee, Caroline Popper (Popper & Co) and I had a...

A few weeks ago over coffee, Caroline Popper (Popper & Co) and I had a fascinating conversation about the path toward "Smarter Healthcare".  This post is the first in a series of four that arise from that conversation and are informed by our careers working...

(Take-aways from: Precision Medicine World Conference 2019, Molecular Med Tri-Con 2019, and MedExec Women) The Precision Medicine industry is rocketing along with tremendous scientific advances and dynamic business models, representing the promise of better healthcare at lower cost. Key Tech works heavily across this industry, and...

Medical and Drug Delivery Device HFES takeaways. A Key Tech Perspective. Last month’s HFES conference (Human Factors and Ergonomics in Healthcare), was a three day deep dive into real-world examples and an exploration of solutions for issues and challenges in healthcare. Representing Key Tech’s product development and design...

In medtech today, the term can mean anything from a simple sensor-enabled activity tracker to a highly sensitive neural device communicating with a paired brain implant.  The rapid growth of the wearable market comes at a time when consumers demand technology advancements – device miniaturization,...

As an Industrial Designer at Key Tech since 2012, I know first-hand how critical a multidisciplinary team is for the success of a product development program.  To create truly beautiful and efficient use-experiences, an Industrial Designer within a team needs to function as a user...

It feels like no matter the project, if fluidics are involved, the topic of bubbles pops back up.  Lab-on-a-chip is a growing industry, and miniaturizing a fluidic system comes with a unique set of bubble challenges.  When down at the microfluidic scale, a bubble has...

To say the world moves faster every day seems like the ultimate cliché.  Haven’t generations upon generations made this same observation?  We stand in the present, looking back upon times when the technology felt slower, progress more relatable, and looking forward, we feel an acceleration,...
