Future Hospital: Advancing Med-Tech Innovation in Melbourne

Health - Talk

Event Details

Have you ever wondered how innovations in medical devices are conceived? How do the inventors of new devices know what needs to be made? This panel of industry professionals discuss the role they play in supporting entrepreneurs to identify a clinical need, create a concept and design and then bring their innovation to market.

This event is booked out.

This event is part of Future Hospital. Check out the hospital before you check in – discuss robot pills and medical drones, play doctor in a guided theatre experience, or be part of a live experiment. Tour a hospital of the future to find out what health will look like in a world of virtual reality, 3D printing, remote care, precision medicine, and wearable medical devices.
