And the winners in medical design are

I just returned from Los Angeles, where I served as a judge for an industry award contest. It wasn't the Oscars.

Instead, 14 other jurors and I were locked in a conference room at the Sheraton at Los Angeles International Airport. Over three days, we carefully and diligently selected the winners of this year's

Complete evaluations are often not possible. This was evident in those products incorporating complex software, whereby an evaluation of all possible bugs and algorithmic scenarios was not feasible. The extensive experience of the judges comes into play and gut feelings - what Malcolm Gladwell calls rapid cognition - also figured into the assessments......

Back to the basics

In line with the increasing emphasis on design, we observed some of the best products leveraging very basic geometrical and technical elements. While nobody gets......

Companies that wish to design successful devices should keep this in mind.

On the other hand, devices that piled on additional functionality sometimes raised safety concerns as additional and more complex functions provided more opportunity for error.

Despite all the innovation we've seen, the medical device industry is fundamentally quite conservative.

Although I don't mean to be glib or platitudinous, I would hope that such industry awards (this includes the Oscars) are more than just about winners and losers, but about the entire industry engaging in continuous learning. An industry that doesn't learn will ultimately fail, and in ......
