Rapid Prototyping, 3D Printing, Medical

ModernTech is Attending the SEMDA 2015 Conference. Should You Be There?

By Samantha Bild on February 23, 2015

If you 3D print medical devices or prototypes, come visit us at SEMDA from March 31st through April 1st.

If your company is not familiar, the Southeastern Medical Device Association (SEMDA) is a regional non-profit trade association that promotes medical device and medical device data systems (MDDS) companies in the southeast.

Not sure if you should attend? The biggest trend right now in technology is personalization and customization. Fittingly, this year’s SEMDA  conference program is all about “Smart Devices + Smart Medicine.” This event is an excellent opportunity to network with industry professionals and to gain insight into medical device trends that can help adapt your business. ModernTech recommends that the following professionals attend this event:
  • Medical Device Executives
  • Research and Development
  • Regulatory and Compliance Teams
  • Patent and Legal Departments
  • Financial and Investment Professionals
  • Clinical Trial Companies
  • University Research Departments
  • Commercialization Consultants
  • Medical Sales Representatives

SEMDA 2015 has an impressive line-up of keynote speakers including Johnson & Johnson and CHIRP. Topics range from smart monitoring devices to FDA regulation of digital health.

ModernTech’s goal at SEMDA is to help educate the medical device industry on how 3D printing can evolve operations and processes. 3D printing helps doctors, researchers, and medical device manufacturers to work fast, to test thoroughly and to customize like never before. 3D printing provides highly accurate surgical guides, true-to-life medical device prototypes, strong rapid tooling and custom fixtures to maximize efficiency beyond rapid prototyping to produce 3D printed end-use parts.  This technology offers biocompatible materials, so you can take advantage of 3D printing and geometric capabilities in patient care and advanced experimental work. Additionally, you can utilize standard sterilization methods including autoclave, ethylene oxide, and hydrogen peroxide to gamma radiation.
