WALTHAM, MASS. — The upcoming Plastics in Medical Devices 2013 conference will provide device designers, brand owners and processors with insights into today’s challenges for developing and commercializing such devices.

Among more than two dozen presenters, HS Design Inc.’s Michael Herda will discuss complying with ISO13485, Ximedica LLC’s Ryan Shafer will look at design factors impacting the rise of home health devices, and Granta Design’s Kristen Roenigk will provide tips on material selection.

Herda, design director at his New Jersey firm and vice-chair of the Industrial Designers Society of America’s Medical Section, will discuss HS Design’s transition to the ISO13485 standard from a designer’s perspective. He will present a case study and assess the lessons learned during the past year.

Shafer, Ximedica’s director of consumer healthcare in Providence, R.I., will discuss human factors engineering, brand management, user needs and industrial design as they relate to the development of home health-care devices increasingly being used by consumers.

And Roenigk, medical-device sales manager for Cambridge, England-based materials information technology firm Granta Design, will address how to streamline the process of materials selection for such devices with the goal of getting it right from the start.
