Description

Join us on May 29 to hear from our curated panel of expert speakers on the future of Medical Hardware, and how it will impact our lives.

Medical hardware has evolved at a traditionally slow pace over the past few decades, but recently we’ve seen a surge of start ups tackling and disrupting the medical field through smarter, more connected, and better products to serve patients, and ease hospital overload.

These technologies are slowly but surely turning the tide on medicine, helping push us toward a world where medical treatments can be more proactive and less reactive.

Our panelists will dive into the following topics:

  • How have innovations in medical hardware impacted patient’s wellbeing and quality of life for patients?

  • How innovations in the field have changed patient doctor relationships?

  • How has technologies such as wearable tech impacted the field if medicine? Ex. Aggregate better biometrics on patients

Network over beer and pizza after the panel.

Speakers


Milad Alizadeh, Myant (@@myantandco)

Overseeing the R&D efforts at Myant, Milad’s vision is to continue this path and make accessible many technologies which have been proven in the realms of academia and research but have yet to make the breakthrough into everyday usage. He is currently collaborating with various universities, hospitals and rehabilitation centers on introducing textile based solutions, while studying their feasibility of use and efficacy of purpose. Milad earned his BASc and MASc degrees from the University of Toronto at the department of Mechanical Engineering and Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME). His research interests span various areas such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA), bio-signal processing, physiological control systems, biomechanics and biomaterial development.

Joseph Ferenbok, Director of the Translational Research Program, Faculty of Medicine, U of T (@@Joseph_Ferenbok ‏)

Joseph Ferenbok is the Director of the Translational Research Program in the Faculty of Medicine and Assistant Professor with the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. His teaching interests centre on the translation and mobilization of knowledge across disciplinary contexts using design-thinking strategies among multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary teams. His goal is to help student develop their ideas and move knowledge from the classroom into real-world contexts.

Before taking on the position of TRP Director, Joseph’s research interests centred on information privacy and video surveillance and include involve the development of biometrics and facial recognition technology and their growing role in institutional identification practices. He was the Principal Investigator of the "Who is Watching You? And Why?" project, funded by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.


Doron Dekel, Co-founder and CEO, Claronav

Doron Dekel has a long track record of successfully leading the development of many pioneering medical visualization and surgical navigation products. Amongst them (with year of first clinical use): The first interactive medical 3-D visualization system (1985); the first real-time medical 3-D visualization system (1987); the leading 3D workstation for CT and MRI (1990); the first commercial surgical navigation system (1992); the most successful multi-modality multi-vendor medical imaging software framework (1992); the first user-programmable workflow UI in CT/MRI scanner consoles (1995); free-hand real-time ultrasound 3-D reconstruction (2000); volume rendering engine for consumer PCs (2000); first visible light optical pose tracking system (2004); high-performance CPU-based volume rendering engine in wide use (2004); first perspective CT colon flattening algorithm (2004); automatic detection of colon polyps (2005); full body CT atlas registration (2007); .NET-based multi-modality visualization, segmentation, registration and navigation framework in wide use (2008); the most compact and affordable ENT navigation system (2013); the most accurate and easily usable dental navigation system (2013).
