MEMS Executive Congress Europe
March 20, 2012
Hotel Novotel Zurich Airport Messe
An executive forum promoting the commercialization of MEMS
MEMS and Quality of Life
Today MEMS is helping engineers to accomplish what we never thought possible. MEMS Industry Group has invited some top innovators in biomedicine/medical devices to MEMS Executive Congress Europe to discuss how they use MEMS in life-enhancing and even life-saving quality of life (QoL) applications. From personalized drug-delivery systems and video games used for physical and mental rehabilitation to implantable brain-computer interface devices that allow quadriplegic patients to control robotic limbs, MEMS is changing the way that we live our lives. Our QoL panelists will address:
How are MEMS devices integrated into existing and upcoming biomedical products/medical devices?
How do we define QoL and how is MEMS technology improving QoL through better monitoring, management, rehab and replacement?
What are the growing commercial opportunities for MEMS in biomedical products/medical devices?
Please join us March 20, 2012, 1:30-2:15 p.m., for the panel, "MEMS and Quality of Life."
