About this product
- DescriptionRecognize market opportunities, master the design process, and develop business acumen with this 'how-to' guide to medical techlogy invation. A three-step, proven approach to the biodesign invation process - identify, invent, implement - provides a practical formula for invation. The experiences of hundreds of invators and companies, in the form of case studies, quotes and practical advice, offer a realistic, action-orientated roadmap for successful biodesign invation. Real-world examples, end-of-chapter projects, and Getting Started sections guide the reader through each of the key stages of the process and provide a template to create their own new medical devices. Addressing common medical, engineering, and business challenges to develop well-rounded expertise, this book is the complete package for any biodesign entrepreneur. The text is supported by valuable resources, including up-to-date industry changes: found at ebiodesign.org.
- Author BiographyStefanos Zenios is the Charles A. Holloway Professor at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University. His pioneering work on maximizing the benefits of medical technology to patients when resources are limited has influenced policies in the US and Europe. He has quantified the ethical implications of technology allocation choices on patients and society as featured in the Financial Times and Times.com. At Stanford University, he was the first to introduce courses on the interface between medicine, engineering, and management in the MBA curriculum. Dr Zenios advises medical device and biopharmaceutical companies on health economics and outcomes studies for marketing and reimbursement strategies. He is also a co-founder of Culmini Inc., a company funded by the National Institutes of Health to develop web-tools that help patients and families with difficult choices. Josh Makower is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of ExploraMed, a medical device incubator. He is also a Venture Partner with New Enterprise Associates, a Consulting Associate Professor at Stanford University Medical School, and a co-founder of Stanford's Biodesign Innovation Program. Dr Makower has founded several medical device businesses including Moximed, Vibrynt, NeoTract, Acclarent, TransVascular and EndoMatrix. Up until 1995, he was founder and Manager of Pfizer's Strategic Innovation Group. He holds over 50 patents in various fields of medicine and surgery, an MBA from Columbia University, an M.D. from NYU, and an S.B. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT. Paul Yock is the Director of the Stanford Biodesign Program and the founding Co-Chair of the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University. He is known internationally for his work in inventing, developing, and testing new medical devices, including the Rapid Exchange(TM) balloon angioplasty and stenting system, which is now the principal system in use worldwide. He also authored the fundamental patents for mechanical intravascular ultrasound imaging and founded Cardiovascular Imaging Systems. In addition, he invented a Doppler-guided access system known as the Smart Needle(TM) and PD-Access(TM). Dr Yock holds 55 US patents and has authored over 300 papers, mainly in the area of catheter-based interventions and technologies. He has been elected to membership in the National Academy of Engineering and has received several prestigious awards, including the American College of Cardiology Distinguished Scientist Award. Todd J. Brinton is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular) and Bioengineering (by courtesy) at Stanford University. He is an interventional cardiologist at Stanford University Medical Center and investigator in interventional-based therapies for coronary disease and heart failure. He is also the Fellowship Director for the Biodesign Program, and Co-Director of the graduate class in Biodesign Innovation at Stanford University. Dr Brinton completed his medicine, cardiology, and interventional training at Stanford University. He holds an M.D. from the Chicago Medical School and a B.S. in bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego. He is co-founder of BioParadox, Inc., a venture-backed medical device company and serves on the advisory board for a number of early-stage medical device companies. Prior to medical school he was the Clinical Research Director for Pulse Metric, Inc., a medical device start-up company. Uday N. Kumar is the founder and Chief Medical Officer of iRhythm Technologies, Inc., a venture-backed medical device company focused on developing new devices and systems for the detection of cardiac rhythm disorders. He is also the Associate Director, Curriculum of Stanford-India Biodesign and a Lecturer in Bioengineering, and has served as an Adjunct Clinical Instructor of Cardiovascular Medicine, all at Stanford University. In these capacities, he mentors, advises, and teaches students and fellows about the biodesign process. Dr
