We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive discussion with your peers to gain your perspective in support of our ongoing industry research.

Join us for this Timely Discussion!

Interventional, catheter-based and endoscopic procedures have become standard of care in much of medicine, but these fields continue to represent two of the strongest spaces for medical technology innovation. Some of the most critical devices used in these procedures must transmit energy and data across narrow gauge cable assemblies which must be designed and manufactured to exacting specifications. As manufacturers look to reduce the size of these devices to make them less invasive for patients and easier to use for providers and bring them successfully to market, they face technical and manufacturability challenges related to tighter tolerances that cannot be ignored. But what are the best practices you should consider when faced with these same problems?

The key questions we will be discussing are:

How should developers manage critical engineering challenges as many medical devices strive to be smaller?

What strategies should companies use with their manufacturing partners to overcome size constraints?

Which integration and supply chain solutions are OEMs deploying to succeed in the market?

What manufacturing approaches are companies using for devices with complex microwire and/or fiberoptic cable assemblies?

Frost & Sullivan Virtual Think Tanks are unique and highly-engaging networking sessions for you to experience with other professionals. Content from the discussion will be used by Frost & Sullivan to produce a summary article where you will have the option to be featured as a thought leader in the medtech field. You may also opt to remain anonymous and unattributed in the article we produce. We look forward to you participating in the Think Tank scheduled at the time indicated above.
