Digital technology is transforming healthcare, from treating patients after they get sick to a future of preventive care. This shift is being enabled by multiple exponential technologies including AI and a dramatically expanded domain of health sensors to extract personal health information—analyzing and sensing everything required to early detect diseases including blood, biome, genome, DNA, neurological signals, and the health of internal organs. These systems are based on derivations of classical silicon sensors (MEMS) as well as newly emerging printed, flexible, and stretchable sensors on paper and plastic platforms and e-textiles which are enabling wearable applications. This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Medical Design Briefs looks at the development of these systems and the impact they will have on next-generation medical devices.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
Janusz Bryzek, Ph.D., Executive Chairman and Chief Visionary Officer, eXo Imaging
Dr. Janusz Bryzek, one of the pioneers of MEMs and the "Father of Sensors," has co-founded eleven pioneering Silicon Valley MEMS companies, including Sensym, NovaSensor, eXo Imaging, and the non-profit TSensors Summit. Janusz has published more than 250 papers, chaired international conferences, authored 35 U.S. patents, and initiated several sensor standardization efforts. He has been recognized for his work on numerous occasions, including by Sensors Expo, which presented him with the 2018 Industry Impact Award for Engineering Excellence. Janusz received his master's degree and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Warsaw University of Technology and completed the Executive Management Program at Stanford University.
